Previous Scene Act 6 - The Death Of Judas Next Scene

Scrim: The lights now come up behind the Scrim on the Drama Room with the Drama Team seated around the table.

Judas: (Seated on his barstool, towards and behind the table..... with a set of headphones on, he is pretending to play his guitar, he seems oblivious to the rest of the room)

Leader: Judas! Judas! (the Leader walks over and lifts Judas' head phones) "Are you with us today?" Are you going to contribute to the play or not?

Judas: Okay, okay.... (removes his headphones, and sets his guitar into the stand)

Props: Hey Judas!! (pulls out a rope with a noose on it) "Look what I found!"

Judas: Cool, dude!! (takes the rope from Peter) So you dudes and dudettes really want to hang me, huh? (laughs, throwing it over the limb of the fake tree in the corner)

Leader: Let's settle down .... so what did you have in mind for your character, Judas? (the Leader sits down at the end of the table)

Judas: I've got a great song!! (passes out scripts to the table people) Check it out!

We need a tree..... we got it (points to the tree), a noose.... we got it (points to the noose) and a couple of demons..... we got 'em (smiles and points to the girls) and a Van Heflin heavy-metal guitarist!!

Leader: (waving his hands in the air) Wait, wait, wait, wait!! A Van Heflin guitarist?

Judas: Don't worry .... we got it.... on CD dude!! (motions for the girls to follow him) Come on you little demon dudettes, stand over here!

Demons: (the girls get up from the table and move to the left of the stage, standing behind the Scrim and to stage left of him)

Judas: (hands the CD to Props) Start this CD for me dude, when I queue you! (pull the tree out in front of the scrim, but slightly behind him on stage right) Hey, demon dudettes, .... when you sing your parts try to sound like the chipmunks and taunt me when you sing, okay?

Manager: (one of the table people, grabs the guitar and straps it on) Can I pretend to play the guitar? (the guitarist moves to the center of the stage, behind the scrim)

Judas: Sure dude, crank it up!! (he gives a thumbs up to Props to start the CD)

Scrim: (the lights down dim on the Drama Room, the Scrim is lighted with a red background. The Guitarist and the Demon Taunters are shadowed on the Scrim from behind. The Hanging Tree can be shadowed as well, or placed on the front of the stage with Judas)

 

STAGE NOTE: the lights now dim behind the scrim and a spotlight appears on Judas as the music begins, you can slightly see the Demon Taunters on stage left, the tree on stage left and the man holding the guitar in the center.

Song: "Secret Lies"

Judas:

(Introduction)

(Verse 1)
Do you see the tree that I see waiting? It calls to me.
There I shall hang until my life is gone.
Oh my God, my Sin!

(Chorus)
The Secret lies they told me!
They gave me money, a bag of silver!
All for the chance to give You to them
All with just a kiss - I wish I had not been born!

Demons:
He sold You to them for a bag of coins
Judas plotters hiding little scheming plans
Secret lies He'll pay the price with his neck!

Judas:

(Verse 2)
I remember on the night of Passover
You washed my feet! Down on Your knees
And still You knew my thoughts
Oh, my Lord, my Sin!

(Chorus)
The Secret lies they told me!
They gave me money a bag of silver!
All for the chance to give You to them
All with just a kiss - I wish I had not been born!

Demons:
He sold You to them for a bag of coins
Judas plotters hiding little scheming plans
Secret lies He'll pay the price with his neck!

Judas:

(Verse 3)
Seated there beside You at the table
You called me out:
"Go do the deed that's hidden in your heart"
Oh my God, my Sin!

(Chorus)
The Secret lies they told me!
They gave me money a bag of silver!
All for the chance to give You to them
All with just a kiss - I wish I had not been born!

(Ending with Judas & Demons)
I (He) sold You to them for a bag of coins
Judas plotters hiding little secret plans,
Secret lies, I'll pay the price with my neck!


Judas: (when the song has concluded ..... Judas walks over to the tree ... adjusting the nooses)

Scrim: Blackout .... all lights go out in front and behind the Scrim

Stage Note: During the blackout, the tree is pulled off-stage quickly

Scrim: The lights now come up in the Drama Room ... we see Judas returning to his stool)

Judas: Man! That's heavy, huh? (returning to his stool, he does not pick up his guitar and sits on the barstool) I ain't never going to be a Judas .... this guy.... like.... went postal on himself for eternity .... why didn't he just ask Jesus to forgive him?

Leader: Judas is one of the great mysteries .... maybe he didn't ask for forgiveness because he didn't know he could.... or maybe he was so caught up in his own sin, he thought it was too late. A lot of people are like that .... they think its too late for them and their sinful ways..... so they never ask Jesus to forgive them.
