The Scene: Three children with a Bible
discussing the true meaning of Easter.
The Characters: Three children, the Easter Bunny,
the Teacher, Jesus on a stick pony, two children with palm
branches, Jesus carrying a large cross, a Roman soldier with a
"whip," and a child in robes.
(Easter Bunny enters stage.)
Easter Bunny: Hey! It's me!
Child 1: Yeah, whatever.
(Continues talking to the others.)
Easter Bunny: (Jumps around excitedly to
get their attention again.) Hey! Hey! It's me! Aren't you
(sarcastically) Oh...yeah... sure. We're real excited.
Easter Bunny: (Walks over and listens in on
the conversation to see what's going on for a few moments before
speaking.) What are you guys talking about anyway?
Child 3: We're talking about
Easter Bunny: Yeah! That's what I've been
trying to tell you! I'm all about Easter -- and I'm here! (All
the children laugh; the Easter bunny looks confused.)
Easter Bunny: Why aren't you guys excited to
Child 1: Oh! It's not that we're not excited to
see you. Of course we're excited to see you. It's just that you're
not really what Easter is all about.
Easter Bunny: (perplexed) I'm not?
Child 2: No! You're not! And that's what we
were just talking about!
Child 3: (Shows the Easter Bunny an open
Bible.) It's all right here! And we were just reading about
how the disciples got the greatest surprise ever on that first
Easter Bunny: (excitedly) Let me
guess! Let me guess! (Stops to ponder.) I know! I know! A
super-sized, giant, extravagant Easter basket that's this high
(holds hand up) and filled with all kinds of candy!
(Looks at kids and realizes he's way off.) No?
All Children: No!
