Someone Chanted Evening
Cast: Monks (as many as you want), Friar
Props: Blanket and rope for cassocks.
Friar: Good morning everyone.
Monks: Good morning.
Friar: For our morning prayer, we are going to practice chanting. All together now, repeat after me: (chanting) morning, morning, morning.
Monks: (Rather raggedly) Morning, morning, morning.
Friar: Not bad, but we need to get more feeling and rhythm into it. Let’s try again. ( A couple more attempts are made, each one better, then on the third try it sounds excellent, but one Monk chants loud and clear, “Evening, Evening!)
Friar: Cub, Cut! What was that?
Monk: What’s wrong Friar? I thought it sounded good.
Friar: (Breaking into song) SOMEONE CHANTED EVENING!!
