Christian drama scripts - "IT'S NOT TOO LATE" - a musical drama

Scene 8
Katie  enters from stage right.  She walks slowly,  holding the bible Lisa gave her earlier.  It is open, and she reads silently as she
walks.   She sees Jason, closes the bible, and walks towards him.

KATIE:    "Hi Jason.  I've been looking for you."

Jason is startled. He removes his hands from the backpack and closes it.  

JASON:     "Oh........ Katie .......hi."

KATIE :    "I've got a question for you."  (she sits beside Jason).

JASON:    (stands - he's in a rush)  "I'm kinda busy right now......... " ( He grabs his backpack and
starts to leave towards stage left).

KATIE :    (stands and calls after him) "But you did say I could come to you for answers."

Jason stops.  But he stays turned away from Katie.  

KATIE :    (takes a step towards Jason) "What were you talking about in Philosophy class.......when
you said there are no options?"

JASON:    (he shakes his head) "You don't want to know."  (he starts to walk left again)

KATIE :      (with firmness) "Yes I do!"

Jason stops, turns, and faces Katie.  He stares at her for a moment.  But he then sees the bible in her
hand.  He drops his backpack and snatches the bible out of her hand.

JASON:    (irritated) "What's this?"

KATIE:    "Heh!"

Katie reaches for the bible.  Jason turns to keep it away from her.

JASON:    (irritated).  "Just as I thought.  A bible.  You won't get anything but lies out of this!"

Jason walks over to the trashcan, drops the Bible in, and watches it as it hits bottom.  He then turns and
starts walking back to the left.

Now it's Katie that's furious.  She runs to the trashcan, fishes the bible out, then runs up and grabs Jason
by the shoulder.

Jason turns around. He's enraged.  His hand balls up in a fist as if  he's ready to punch Katie out. Katie
quickly  withdraws and holds her arms out in front, trying to calm Jason down.

KATIE:    (defensively) "Chill out Jason"

JASON:     "You're lucky you're a girl, or I'd mash you face in.  What do you want to know."      
(he  walks to center stage, starting to calm a little).

KATIE:       "For one thing, why did you throw Lisa's bible in the trash? " (she wipes off the bible with
her hand.)

JASON:    "I just put it where it belonged.  With the other junk!"

KATIE :    (perplexed) "I don't understand.  Lisa said it had some good stuff in it."

JASON:     (holds his arms up as if appealing to the gods. ) "Lisa - DEAR Lisa.  What must I do to
rid myself of her and her RIGHTEOUS ways." (he goes to Katie and grabs the Bible back.)

KATIE:     (tries to get it back)  "Jason......."  

JASON:    (He pushes Katie  away, and holds the bible up) "This book represents everything I hate
about Lisa........and  GOD!!!!"

KATIE:    (confused) "I thought you didn't believe in God."

JASON:    "I DON'T!!"

Jason is infuriated.  He's been caught in a contradiction and knows it.  He throws the bible on the floor at
Katie's feet.  Katie picks up the bible, then looks at Jason.

KATIE :    (quietly) "It's just a book, Jason............and from the little I've read, it does make sense."     

JASON:     (calmer, but still angry) "She's sure got you brainwashed."

KATIE :        (defensive) "Lisa's OK......"

Jason frowns at her.  Katie decides to move on to something else.

KATIE:        "About Philosophy class......When you're stuck and think you have no options, what            
choice do you make?".

Jason turns to look at Katie.  He pauses,  deciding if he's going to answer the question .  He then starts singing.


I follow my own path
Wherever it may lead
I don't care where it ends,
Or if it's straight or bends.
I'll walk this path alone
Or with you if you wish
Just don't complain or gripe
About the ruts we'll find.

My road may not be best,
At least that's what they say
But then what do they know
About this road I walk.
I want to take this path
Because this path I take
Is MINE!!!!

I don't want them to tell me what to do
I don't want to live my life like them.

I follow my own path,
Wherever it may lead
I don't care where it ends
Or if it's straight or bends
I want to take this path
Because this path I take
Is MINE!!!!!

(Two more verses are sung here)

Jason is through.   He's starts to walk away to the right.  But then he stops to say one last thing to Katie.

JASON:     (quietly) "Let me give you some advice."

KATIE :      "What's that?"

JASON:    "Stay out of the library. It's not a good place to be today."

KATIE :      (perplexed) "Why?"

Jason doesn't reply.  Instead, he turns and quickly  walks off  stage right.

Christian drama scripts - It's Not Too Late - background
The following scene has been taken from the Christian drama script  "It's Not Too Late", - a Christian play - a
musical drama - based on the Columbine tragedy. It is a story of decisions people make about God and the
consequences of some of those decisions. This play runs about 60 minutes, takes a cast of 11-12, and has about 20
minutes of original music. It can also be performed as a drama (without music).

Although this play was written to the shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado on August
20, 1999, it's message is just as powerful today as it was back then. T
he most important choice we make in
life is the one we make about God.  It's a decision  that affects our lives.  It also affects the lives of others.
some, it's too late to make a different choice about God.  But for most - for you -
It's Not Too Late.
