Willy Wonka and the Prayer Factory (Act 2 – Scene 5 to Scene 6) – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

The scene opens as Willy leads Charlie and Mike TV into the Fervency Room. Mike, since he has seen lots of movies where people are praying and read lots of blogs on the Internet, feels like he can handle this room. Willy warns that this room is more advanced, but Mike begins to pray anyway. After the machine goes haywire, we see Mike wrapped up in taffy. Willy calls for an Oompa Loompa to take Mike to the Taffy Pulling Room to stretch him out until he has reached maximum fervency. Willy shares some lessons regarding prayer with Charlie before they move on. The Oompa Loompa’s change the scene as they sing another song about prayer. We come to the final scene with Willy and Charlie in Willy’s office. Willy dismisses Charlie and heads to his desk. Charlie asks about the prize at the end of the tour, but gets more than he bargained for when Willy rebukes him for disobeying the first rule Charlie was given. Charlie, grieved and repentant because of his sin, before he leaves returns the Everlasting Cravingstopper to Willy. Willy, seeing Charlie’s repentance, announces that Charlie has won. Mr. Slugworth is revealed as working for Willy and the Everlasting Cravingstopper is also revealed as a fake. The prize is revealed as the secret to the presence of God. Willy shares the simplicity of how to approach God, getting alone with Him and getting quiet with Charlie.The scene ends with a final song from the Oompa Loompa’s.

This skit is based on the teaching that Pastor Scott did beginning March 30th and ending May15th, called Living in the Supernatural. Many of the principles brought forth in that teaching were brought out in this skit through the dialogue of the actors and the songs.

Willy Wonka and the Prayer Factory (Act 2 – Scene 1) – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

The children, with their golden tickets, show up in front of the factory for their tour. As they are waiting, Mr. Slugworth addresses Charlie and we find out what all the whispering has been about. After Slugworth exits, Willy Wonka (played by Tony) enters the scene, greets the children, collects their tickets and gives them two rules that they need to follow. Willy then leads the children into the factory. As they enter, Willy sings a song about the factory and the importance of prayer. After the song, there is discussion about the room that they’re in. During the conversation, the Oompa Loompa’s (played by Amy, Anna, Bethany, Catherine and Sarita) come onto the scene. Finally, as they’re discussing the river, Augustus begins to selfishly pray for himself and gets sucked into the river. After Willy calls for an Oompa Loompa and gives instructions, he leads the children on in their tour. The Oompa Loompa’s change the scene as they sing a song about prayer.

Willy Wonka and the Prayer Factory (Act 1 – Scene 1 to Scene 4) – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

We open with breaking news regarding the opening of the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory and the contest that will allow five lucky winners to enter the factory. Chad Chadwick (played by Jeff) brings us the news. We then cut to Charlie (played by Tim) coming home to tell his Grandpa (played by Jason) the exciting news. We begin character development with Charlie in this scene.

We then go back to a Breaking News Update with Chad Chadwick where we learn that four of the five golden tickets have been found. From there, we’re off to Germany, where Augustus Gloop (played by Jeff), along with his mother (played by Lisa) are being interviewed about how he found his golden ticket. Character development for Augustus happens throughout this scene. As the scene comes to an end, we see Mr. Slugworth (played by Jay) whispering something to Augustus.

Next we find ourselves in London, where Veruka Salt (played by Tierney), along with her Dad, Mr. Salt (played by Tony) are now being interviewed. Veruka’s selfish, demanding traits are seen immediately. Mrs. Salt (played by Tierney), even chimes in encouraging Mr. Salt to hurry with the solution. Again, we see Mr. Slugworth closing out this scene whispering to Veruka.

We then travel to Chicago, Illilois, where Carlos Havier (played by Joe) is interviewing Violet Beauregard (played by Lisa). Violet’s Dad, Sam Beauregard (played by Tony) interrupts and is stopped by Mrs. Beauregard (played by Lisa) and Violet, who chastises her father for interrupting. Characteristics and traits of Violet are revealed throughout the interview and again the scene is closed out with Mr. Slugworth whispering to Violet.

To round out the interviews, we end up in Houston, Texas, where Carlos Havier is interviewing the winner of the fourth golden ticket; Mike TV (played by Matt). Mike doesn’t say too much as he is preoccupied with video games and cell phones. Mike TV’s mom (played by Lisa) handles most of the interview and reveals much about her son’s character (or lack thereof?). Mike’s Dad (played by Tony) can’t even be bothered with more than a grunt. Mr. Slugworth makes another appearance, whispering slyly into Mike’s ear as the scene ends.

Finally, to wind up Act 1, we come back to Charlie and Grandpa, where Charlie is in for some disappointing news. Grandpa informs Charlie the fifth ticket has been found and we cut to Carlos Havier with an inspector (played by Rich). Charlie’s hope is restored and he opens his Wonka bar to realize that he IS the winner of the fifth golden ticket.

Zoomility – Act 5 – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

The scene opens with Ginny and Gorgeous George in a fight. George, being impatient with his wife, is saying the right things, but in the wrong spirit. Ginny determines that maybe God made a mistake this time. George thinks God should strike her down. Juju comes on the scene, telling them to stop bickering and continues in his pride. Now the infection comes to a head and we see its destructive force. It finalizes in Livingstone eating Kiki. After an alarm, we see the animals that are left sitting dejected. Dr. Goodall comes back to visit the zoo and is shocked at the condition of the animals. Dr. Goodall comments on the destruction that is evident in the humble little zoo. Sadly, he doesn’t realize his pride was what caused the destruction in the first place.

Zoomility – Act 4 – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

The scene opens with Livingstone realizing “he can be more”. He then goes to Gorgeous George and begins infecting them. He asks George if he is happy being in the zoo and being a hippo, how God made him. Livingstone’s pride culminates in putting himself forth as special and because of that everyone should listen to him. In his pride, he offends Ginny and Gorgeous George. After he leaves, Ginny is devastated. Unable to be consoled by Gorgeous George, she turns to Alphonse. Asking Alphonse if she is fat, she is horrified by his answer. Alphonse makes a funny comment, but it really does bring the point home of being content how God has made us. Ginny, still seeing that she is not receiving what she thinks she needs, goes to Rico for help. Infected with pride, Ginny announces she doesn’t want to be a hippo anymore. Rico gives her wise counsel, but she doesn’t have ears to hear. Ginny then begins tearing down her husband. Rico is horrified and attempts to get her back on track. Ginny now infects Rico by pointing out that he is walked on all over and no one serves him. After being infected, Rico then decides that he is done being a servant. The scene ends as Ginny heads back to George announcing that they “need to talk”.

Zoomility – Act 3 – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

Oscar goes to visit Kiki attempting to acquire a computer for his cage so that he can begin preparing. Oscar points out that he is special and needs to prepare. Kiki attempts to bring Oscar back to reality. As Oscar rants about being tired of being a captive, Kiki points out that he isn’t a captive, but an important member of their family. Oscar will not be reasoned with and begins making it personal with Kiki. Kiki is infected with pride during the discourse and Oscar leaves in a huff. Kiki begins complaining to Livingstone. She begins ranting about how special she is and how humiliating it is to ask for help. She then proceeds to infect Livingstone with pride. She says he should be more like her, independent, and to stop “relying on the man” to bring him food.

Zoomility – Act 2 – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

The scene opens with Oscar Meyer enjoying his banana. Dr. James Goodall enters the scene and introduces himself. He immediately begins his evaluation of Oscar. Dr. Goodall then “infects” Oscar Meyer with pride as he rants about the award and accolades he will receive. After the evaluation, Oscar is clearly excited as Juju comes back on the scene. Juju makes little of Oscar’s opportunity for fame. As the banter goes back and forth, Oscar now infects Juju with pride. Juju declares himself king of the zoo. Oscar, clearly tired of the conversation takes his leave of Juju to go prepare for his launch “into greatness”.

Zoomility – Act 1 – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

Our skit opens in the zoo. Rico the Racoon (played by Joe) is seen visiting each of the animals. Rico, moving in a true servants heart, is making sure the needs of all of the animals are met. Rico start with Alphonse the Walrus (played by Jeffrey). Kiki the giraffe (played by Tierney) and Livingstone the lion (played by Matt) are visited next. Rico helps Kiki by scheduling squirrels to move the bottom leaves to the top of the tree where Kiki has better access. It is obvious by the bandage on Livingstone’s “paw” that something was wrong. Rico reveals that Livingstone had a thorn extracted and Livingstone assures that it will be “good as new”. Rico serves Livingstone by putting in a request that a sign be made up indicating that cacti shouldn’t be thrown at the lion. Moving on to Ginny (played by Lisa) and Gorgeous George (played by Rich), Rico greets the hippos. By now we are seeing the animals are living in peace and harmony. Juju (played by Tony), the Indian Lemur receives his “juicy box” from Rico and confirms his schedule for the day. Oscar Meyer (played by Edgar), the orangutan, is Rico’s final stop. Here we find a Dr. Goodall is scheduled to come for a visit to “evaluate” Oscar. Dr. Goodall is from Primate Research Institute, Division Environmental. Delivering a banana to Oscar, Rico announces that it is opening time for the zoo.

We have another video sequence with various videos. Some of them discuss the government using clergymen to aid in times of emergency. One of the televangelists calls upon the people to embrace religious unity. Our televangelist is played by Jerry.

Act 2, Scene 13

The Rivers family is at the kitchen table discussing how the Lord has been moving in their lives. Jim is very quiet through much of the conversation. There is a knock at the door and the family is very uneasy. Jim answers to the door and Bill forces his way in exclaiming, “This is for your own good”. Behind Bill enter two civilian police and they begin arresting the family.

Act 2, Scene 14

A newscast here has our anchor informing his audience that the “religious insurgents” are being rounded up as they are not embracing the “global community of tolerance and peace”.

Act 2, Scene 15 [spoiler]

We come back to the present day as Melissa is in prison, along with several other women. One of which is Melissa’s Muslim neighbor, Sahara. As Sahara observes the women having their devotions together and sees they are obviously joyful, she breaks down crying. Melissa invites her over and they discuss the Lord and His plan of salvation. Sahara wants this relationship. After she prays to receive salvation, the prison door opens and an armed officer enters. We see that it is Jim Rivers. He attempts to dissuade Melissa from her course, but Melissa is unmoving. Angry, Jim leads Melissa out of the cell. Before she leaves, Melissa turns and smiles at the ladies. She shares a word of encouragement before Jim roughly pushes her out of the door. Moments later we hear a gunshot. The women in the cell jump at the sound of the gun and begin to cry. As they praise the Lord through their tears, they lift up their hands in reverence, revealing numbers tattooed on their arms.

Conclusion

We close out the play with a real news cast about Christians being persecuting in America.

The Coming Storm – Act 2 (Scene 8 to Scene 11) – Calvary Temple Sterling Virginia

Act 2, Scene 8

This scene is a news report on a civilian police force being enacted to assist with the “rebels”. We learn from the news anchor that vigilante groups are taking matters into their own hands. In the guise of bringing peace, the President has a statement read by his press secretary (played by Victoria). The press secretary reads the President’s statement, which outlaws proselytizing, bibles and other religious media. Those guilty of these crimes will be considered committing acts of terrorism.

Act 2, Scene 9

Pastor Dave is in prison as this scene opens. Jim Rivers is led into the visiting area to meet with Pastor Dave. The two men are happy to see one another and Jim begins by asking how his pastor is doing. Partway through the conversation, Jim reveals to Pastor Dave the situation that Jim finds himself in. Pastor Dave is very encouraging as he counsels Jim. As the guards (played by Rich and Jay) overhear certain words and terms, they react in anger. At the mention of Jesus’ name, Jim as removed and one guard roughly handles Pastor Dave.

Act 2, Scene 10

As Melissa comes out of Starbucks, she is met by Bill, who is very sickening sweet. Melissa rebukes Bill for lying about Pastor Dave. Bill obviously has an agenda here, but Melissa doesn’t fall for it. We see Bill doing something with his phone as Melissa is encouraging Bill that it isn’t too late to repent. The scene ends with Bill trying to get any bit of information out of Melissa that he can.

Act 2, Scene 11 [spoiler]

The church is now meeting underground and has moved from Roger’s house, to Martin’s house. The conversation comes around to Jim’s visit with Pastor Dave and the fact that the DA is seeking the death penalty. The Christians are in disbelief. Melissa brings up her conversation with Bill, which causes Roger to be alarmed. As Jim shares his uneasiness and feeling like the next knock on the door is going to be the civilian police, there is a knock at the door. Tommy, looking for his parents, has come to Martin’s house. We see Tommy’s genuine, heartfelt repentance and the Rivers family reunited. The scene ends as the Rivers family leaves to go home to talk.
