The Heart Mime Script

by Joshua Jones

The Heart Mime

This skit shows the story of a young girl whose heart is stolen by a young boy. He plays with her heart, and eventually breaks it. The girl is devastated. She gathers up the broken pieces of her heart and God asks for them. Hesitantly, she offers them up, and he gives her a new heart. Again the young boy comes along, asking for her heart. This time she is cold towards him, and tells him that he needs to give his heart to God. She goes away, prays for him, and while he is alone, he hears God ask for his heart. After refusing at first, finally he offers God his heart, and he is changed into a new creature.

Girl

The girl enters the stage, happily skipping around. Perhaps she stops to smell a flower. Generally happy mood.

Boy

Boy enters and is knocked back by the good looks of the girl. Perhaps a wink to the audience. Boy waves from a distance.

Girl

Waves back, perhaps giggles or smiles

Boy

Upon gaining confidence, approaches girl. Offers his hand or bent arm. Boy and girl skip or walk around the stage. They're in love. Eventually boy points at watch and waves goodbye. Exit boy and girl, opposite ends of stage.

Girl

Girl enters stage again, this time more excited.

Boy

Boy enters, sees girl and approaches. This time, he points at the girl and draws a heart in the air, then motions for her to give him her heart.

Girl

Reluctantly pretends to remove heart. (For added effect, create a pulsating motion in cupped hands to represent heart). Girl then gives the heart, with a nervous smile.

Boy

Boy is excited, shows the audience her heart (with hands cupped) and perhaps snuggles it next to his heart. Then his eyes get big and he begins to toss the heart in the air and catch it. Girl can mime a response to each toss (perhaps shock, horror, confusion, etc...)

Boy

Boy then begins to dribble the heart like a basketball and shoots a few shots. Eventually, the boy drops the heart and leaves, uninterested.

Girl

Girl is shattered. She weeps and falls to where her heart was dropped. There on the ground, she slowly sweeps up the pieces with her hands. Then she hears from Heaven. God is asking for her heart. She can't believe it, but gives it to him hesitantly. At this point she stands up and looks upward, waiting for a response. Immediately she is hit with the joy that comes with salvation, and begins to dance around the stage.

Boy

After a brief period of the girl expressing her joy, the boy returns. This time he waves again, but gets the cold shoulder. She looks the other way, arms crossed.

Boy

The boy approaches, and taps her on the back. She turns to face him and he asks for her heart (drawing I in the air). She shakes her head profusely and explains she gave her heart to God.

Boy

The boy asks a second time, but this time the girl stops him. She explains that he needs to give his heart to God.

Boy

The boy rejects this idea and walks away angry.

Girl

The girl exits the stage.

Boy

This time the boy crosses the stage, perhaps kicking a can, and he hears from God. (Usually shown by physical reaction as if to thunder, then looking upward).

Boy

Boy asks God if he is asking for his heart. He then says no. Boy continues on and is asked by God a second time. This time, reluctantly he agrees, and gives his heart to God. Immediately he receives joy and is very excited. He jumps around and explains to the audience that he gave his heart to God. Finally he taps the girl who is turned around and explains what happened.

Both

They both are excited, grab hands and jump around. Finally, take a bow.

Someone on the drama team should then explain to the audience the meaning of the drama and share a scripture.
