Ten Little Groupies!
By Michelle Pitman
A group of girls have won a recent radio competition to party backstage
with a very famous rock star. Some of the girls didn't read the fine
print in the competition rules and are less than prepared! The girls are
milling about around the back stage door waiting, not so patiently, to
The parable of the 5 wise and the 5 foolish Virgins: Matthew 25:1-13
10 females and at least 1 big burly bloke!
Trendy clothes and makeup for the girls and black t-shirt, sunglasses and
jeans for the bloke/s.
Props: A doorway, preferably with a flight of steps to resemble
a back stage area behind a concert hall. At least 5 girls must have two
small laminated cards of different colours. All the other girls must
only have one card of one colour.
[All girls with no actual lines are milling about quietly, some murmuring
about the concert and others getting excited about seeing the rock star
Shiana: [sighing] So when do you think they'll let us in?
Karen: [seated on cold 'cement slab'] I dunno - soon I hope - my behind
is getting sore!
Janie: What'd you think of the concert?
Karen: Oh wasn't it fantastic? He's sooooo cute! I'll just die
if we actually get to meet him! I loved that song he sang after intermission
……..[The "stage door" opens and the girls all get very animated and start
to jostle and try to get to the door in a rush. They start to scream hysterically]
Shiana: [loudly over the screaming] Oh Oh Oh! The doors opening!
All: [screaming] Robbie! Robbie! Robbie! [This continues for
a few seconds but when a big burly security guy comes out of the doorway
the screaming dies away and the girls wait to hear what the security guy
is going to say.]
Shiana: Ooooohhhhhhh! It's only the security guy!!
Security Guy: [Very officious but cool!] Okay Girls! Settle down!
Settle down! [He waits for the murmuring and screaming to die down
even further] Mr Williams will be ready to see you in a little while!
Congratulations to all of you on winning the Triple JJJ Back Stage Party
with Robbie Competition! [Some of the girls start to scream again but get
shushed by others] Okay - Those of you who have ID cards and the
official Triple JJJ Back Stage Pass bring them here please!" [4 girls move
forward holding two coloured plastic cards. He checks the cards.]
Shiana: [indignantly] What Back Stage Pass? Who said anything
about a back stage pass! I thought we only had to have ID!!!!
Janie: [Janie is the 5th girl who has the right cards in hand but being
friends with Shiana, Karen and Cassie she hesitates going forward to help
them rectify their situation] Oh no! Didn't you read that bit
in the competition rules, in the paper? You had to actually contact
the Triple JJJ station if you won, so they could send you the proper Back
Stage Pass! [Janie quickly moves over to the security guy and hands him
her cards to check. He nods and then gives them back to her then
exits back out the doorway.]
Karen: [annoyed and very put out] Well Hey! That's not fair! Why the
hec didn't they make that bit obvious? Who on earth ever reads contest
rules! Stupid fine print!
Cassie: [not very bright] Can we aahhh ….. like use your BSP then Janie?
Janie: [Janie pulls a face and shakes her head at Cassie] Doh! Cassie!
How are you going to get a hold of my BSP when I'm already back stage -
in there? Hmmm? Get a grip girl!
Cassie: [indignantly] Ohh! Humpf! So how are we supposed to get
Janie: [frustrated] I don't know? The Security bloke has gone
back inside! If he comes out again ask him!
[Everyone waits for about a minute…the time seems interminable! Lots
of murmuring, and milling about takes place]
Shiana: Oh this is taking ages! I hope they hurry up! [Enter Security
guy again through doorway. All leap forward and jostle into position.
Karen is up front beside the security guy in a blink of an eye. Her
friends are not far behind her.]
Karen: [To the security guy, smiling charmingly] Excuse me! Excuse
me! Um… My girlfriends and I don't have our Back Stage Passes on
us! Is it still okay for us to come in though? We did win the
competition! And we have our ID cards!
Security Guy: Nope! Sorry girlie! No go! We can only take those
who've got that Back Stage Pass! It's all a part of the security
protocols I'm afraid!
Karen: [Very cross and stamping of foot] That's soooo unfair
though! I won the same as they did!
Security Guy: Well darlin' you should've been more organized then!
Now excuse me! Okay! Mr Williams will see you NOW! ID's and
Passes please! [The 5 girls with their passes move forward and show them
to the security guy who checks them again and gives the okay for each to
go in through the door.] Okay! [Exit 1st girl]
Karen: Well I still think it's not fair! We should be allowed in!
I mean we won the contest too! Fair and Square!
Security Guy: Okay! [Exit 2nd girl] Yes in you go! [Exit 3rd and 4th
Janie: [Moving toward the security guy and presenting her passes to
him] I'm sorry Karen! I'll tell you about the Party and Mr Hunky
Boots Robbie if I see you tomorrow! Crumbs! I wish you'd remembered to
get your stupid BSP! See ya!!! [Exit Janie]
[Security guy waits expectantly for more girls to come forward with
their passes but none do. He then exists and the doors close.
Cassie and Shiana burst into tears. Karen looks at the doorway with
anger and frustration].
Karen: Stupid party anyhow! C'mon! I'm going home! You two coming?
[Exit Karen, Cassie and Shiana. 2 other girls exit in different
directions in a dejected state too.]
