The Creation (In The Beginning)

 

Characters: Storyteller, God, Light, Dark, Sky, Sea, Water, Land, Moon, Stars, Fish, Birds, Plants, Trees and Animals (there can be as many stars, fish, birds, plants, trees and animals as you want.)

 

Storyteller: In the beginning, there was only God.

(Enter God. He stumbles around in the darkness.)

God: This world is very empty, there is nothing here. (He looks around in the darkness.) I think it’s time for a change. I will make this world brighter and fuller.

God: First of all, we need light. Light, light come here at once.

Light: You called, God. (Light stops suddenly and starts to walk slowly in the dark.) It’s very dark in here.

God: I know, that’s why I called you. This world needs light.

Light: Let there be light. (This stage gradually becomes brighter.) That’s much better.

God: I shall call you day but it can’t be day all the time. Let me think… (God scratches his head.) I know, we need some darkness. Dark, dark come here at once.

Dark: You called God. (Dark stumbles on the stage and he is blinded by light.) It’s very bright in here. (He puts on his sunglasses.)

God: I know, that’s why I called you. I need you to make the earth dark half the time.

Dark: Let there be darkness. (Lights are dimmed.)

Storyteller: That was the first day on earth. The second day began and God said…

God: I’ve more work to do. (He looks up.) How will I cover up the blackness of space? I know, I will make a sky. (Sky appears on stage and looks a bit confused.)

Sky: Where am I? What am I?

God: You are the sky. You will have a very special job you will be the top of the world.

Sky: How wonderful, I can look below and see everything. (Looks down but is disappointed because there is nothing there.) There’s not much to see.

God: Have patience Sky, my work here is not done.

Storyteller: On the third day, God thought to himself.

God: The world is missing something. I’ve got night, day, the sky. I think we need some water. Let there be water. (Water enters.)

Water: You called God. How can I help?

God: I need something to cover the bottom of this world. (He points around the stage.)

Water: I will cover the world. (He tries to spread himself all over the stage but he can’t cover the entire space.)

I don’t think I can fill all the space at the bottom of the world.

God: I shall call your friend, land. She might be able to help. Let there be land.

Land: You called God, how can I help you?

God: I need some dry land for the world.

Land: (looks at her watch) I’ve time to stay here in this world for a few billion years.

God: Water, you shall be known as sea and land you shall be known as earth.

Storyteller: Now there was day, night, sky, sea and earth.

Storyteller: On the fourth day the sky came to God and said…

Sky: I’m lonely up here.

God: Don’t worry, I’ll get you some friends. Let there be stars and moon. (Enter the stars and the moon.)

Stars and Moon: We will brighten up the sky so she will never be lonely again.

Storyteller: On the fifth day, the water came to God and said…

Water: I’m lonely here by myself. This sky has the moon and stars to play with, I’ve got no one.

God: Don’t worry water. I’ll get you some friends. Let there be fish in the sea, birds in the sky.

(Enter the fish and the birds.)

Fish and Birds: We will swim in the sea and fly up the sky so the sky and the sea will never be lonely again.

Storyteller: On the fifth day the land came to God and said…

Land: God, I’m lonely I need some friends. The sky has the moon, the stars and the birds and the water has the fish. I have no one.

God: Don’t worry land I’ll get you some friends. Let there be plants, tree and animals on the earth. (Enter animals).

Plants, Trees and Animals: We will grow and roam on the land and the earth will never be lonely again.

Storyteller: On the seventh day, God looked around and said…

God: I’m very pleased with the new world I created. I think I’m finally finished. There is one more thing for me to do and that is to make the seventh day a day of rest.
