Extreme Makeover

Ad for Dinner Theater Script

Extreme Makeover is a take-off of the popular makeover shows. There are 4 actors, 2 male and 2 female. They should all be in Biblical attire. Peter needs to have a fake beard and a headpiece that can be taken off during the skit.

Announcer: (from backstage) And now it’s time for Extreme Makeover in Jeruselem with your host, Macom Grate!

(Hold up applause sign backstage as Macom runs onstage)

Macom: Thank you! Thank you! You’re too kind. Welcome to Extreme Makeover in Jeruselem, the show where you go from ordinary to great all in less than a half hour. Our makeover guest today is a fisherman from Galilee. Boy does he ever need a makeover.

Peter wants to live a victorious Christian life, but frankly, he wasn’t doing so well. After all, he denied Christ 3 times and ran away. Now, he wants to preach and tell others about Christ. And we’re going to help him. Let’s give it up for Simon Peter!

(Applause sign is held up again as Peter walks onstage.)

Peter: What am I doing here? I should be out preaching the gospel.

Macom: And you will, Peter, just as soon as you get an Extreme Makeover. After all, you can’t go preaching in that getup.

Peter: I can’t?

Macom: No, you can’t. You need the power of the best dressed preacher. Girls!

(Bethany and Kayla run on with a jacket)

Bethany & Kayla: Here we are Macom.

Macom: What do we have for Simon Peter?

Kayla: Well, Macom. Everybody knows that to be a successful preacher, you need to have a stylish jacket.

Bethany: After all, a ragged cloak will never do. (She pulls the overcoat off of Peter and Kayla slips the jacket on him).

Kayla: Now that’s stylish.

Macom: But I think we’re missing something.

Bethany: Of course, a tie. (She runs off and returns with a tie and slips it over his head. Then the girls run off.)

Macom: There you are Peter. You’re ready to go and preach the gospel. You have everything you need.

Peter: No I don’t. This isn’t what I need.

Macom: Of course not. You want to preach with power. Girls!

(Bethany and Kayla run on with a white cloth and scissors.)

Bethany & Kayla: Here we are Macom.

Macom: What else do we have for Simon Peter?

Kayla: Everyone knows that beards are so last year.

(Bethany pushes Peter into a chair and they put the white cloth around him. Then the girls stand in front of him as if to shave his beard. They take off the headpiece and beard. And pretend to cut his hair, etc.)

Bethany: (Pulling off the white cloth.) This new cut is so you.

(The girls run off)

Macom: Well Peter? Do you feel the power yet?

Peter: (Stands) No, this is ridiculous. You don’t get power to live the Christian life by shaving your beard and getting new clothes.

Macom: Of course not! You need a style! Girls!

(Bethany and Kayla run on with a cowboy boots and a hat.)

Bethany & Kayla: Here we are Macom.

Macom: What else do we have for Simon Peter?

Bethany: A style for a rugged individual.

Kayla: Nothing says, tough guy like “Cowboy”.

(They push Peter back into the chair and put the boots on his feet and plop the hat on his head then run back offstage.)

Macom: Well Peter? Do you feel the power yet?

Peter: No! (Peter throws hat to the ground) You don’t get power to live the Christian life by changing your style or getting a haircut.

Macom: You don’t?

Peter: No, you get it through the power of the Holy Spirit. He’s the only one who can give you the power to live the Christian life.

Macom: Even to me?

Peter: Even to you Macom. Just ask Jesus to make you into a new person. Now that’s an Extreme Makeover.

(They exit together.)
