And Then There Were Three - Comedy

Paula, Lynn and J.C. have gathered for their regular "girl talk" at the local coffee shop.  During conversation, Paula hands Lynn and J.C. each a small box.  Inside is an engraved necklace commemorating the day the women first met 5 years ago, which was filled with huge misunderstandings and imaginations gone wild. It seems the women shared many similar interests, so they kept running into each other in various places.  However, when the three women turn up at the same book store, at the same time, reading the same magazine, it begins to mess with their minds. Paula ends up thinking she is being stalked and Lynn thinks J.C. is there to kidnap her and take her back to the "mother ship." But what started out as a crazy day 5 years ago, has turned into years of lasting friendship. 

For anyone who has close friendships or those who desire them, this humorous skit reminds us how much women need and appreciate each other. 

Themes: Women's friendship; making friends; common interests women share

Forever Friends - Comedy

Since one of their closest friends moved away, the remaining four members of the Forever Friends Friendship Group has an opening.  The four girls begin the interview process, hoping to find their next best friend.  Will it be Shawna, the beautiful but "ditsy" girl?  Or maybe Ashley, heiress to the Grenada Family Fortune?  Dominique has the fashion sense, but Diana is the most popular girl in school and has connections to all the "cool" kids, including the handsome Chad Atkins.  But maybe Mariah would be better for the group, since her dad is a music producer and can get the girls into all the "hip" concerts.  Tracy and Felicia seem to be nice, but do they have anything of value to offer the group?  The two of them seem to think so, but the rest of the group and applicants aren't so sure.  While the others are bringing wealth, popularity and materialism to the "table," Felicia and Tracy bring something more: giving of themselves.  In the end, Tracy and Felicia realize they may not want to be part of such an "elite" group after all.  

Themes: True friendship, qualities of a friend

Stepping Stones - Comedy

Four women at various stages of life come together at Stepping Stones, a local women's ministry.  At first their reasons for attending appear somewhat "superficial" but underneath each woman there is a desperate need to "connect." Mary, an "empty-nester" who can't quit sobbing uncontrollably, is actually seeking friendship and just someone to "chat" with; Bess, a middle-aged woman with two teen boys who "need a lot of prayer", claims to only be there for the refreshments since her boys "eat her out of house and home"; Sarah, who thinks a class titled "Sweeter than Chocolate" is about eating desserts (when in actuality it is a study in Psalms), just needs a break because she is a young mom with 3 toddlers under the age of 4; and Ruth who is 83 and keeps falling asleep, thinks she's there to play Bingo.  Though these women are at different ages, have different backgrounds and lifestyles, and have come to Stepping Stones for various reasons, one thing remains the same for each of them: they each have a deep desire for fellowship and community with other Godly women, which by the end of the skit they are convinced they will find. 

Themes: Women in fellowship and community with one another; women's friendships; women's groups

These Friends of Mine - Comedy

For Sarah's 12th birthday, she has invited several of her friends over for a slumber party but soon regrets her decision because of their behavior.  Armed with a remote control, the skit unfolds through the eyes of Sarah's older sister, Betsy, who pauses and rewinds the characters, so the audience can see firsthand what has driven Sarah to tears.  According to Betsy, Sarah is the kind of person "who actually does all those good things we learn in Sunday School."  Too bad her friends don't do the same: Tiffany is a spoiled girl who manipulates and controls to get her way; Twyla lives to agitate Tiffany, who also happens to be her older sister; Amber is Tiffany's advocate and allows her to get away with everything; and Chris tries to do the right thing but when push comes to shove, she always give in.  Sarah hopes her good examples of friendship will rub off on her friends but so far, it doesn't seem to be working.  Soon Betsy takes matters into her own hands, and finds a way to use the remote control to help out her sister permanently. 

Themes: Friendship; characteristics of a friend; how to treat others; selfishness
