Episcopal Idol

That was the title of our skit for the talent show at our church retreat this past weekend. Grandpa Bug was "The Big Dawg" Randy Jackson. Grandpa is a sweet guy, but he's as "white" as you can get. It was really quite funny to hear him say, "Yo, Dude! That was hot!"
LLB was Paula. She was cute and sweet and oh so funny!
#1 was Simon. I cannot even tell you how funny he was! He had Simon "down". He had every mannerism, every inflection, every sigh... One of his lines went something like this, "If you sang that way 2000 years ago, Henry the 8th would have had you beheaded." Oh and this one, "That was amazing... amazingly awful!"
I was Ryan Seacrest. I thought I was terrific, if I do say so myself...

Our contestants were in the dark about the whole thing. We just told 3 people from the choir that we needed them to sing a couple of lines from a hymn of their choice. It was a little mean, but we had to keep it secret.

Mr. wrote the script. It was a parody on the goings on in the Episcopal diocese here. Everyone loved it. Our resident professional photographer used our camera and videotaped it as if he were the real cameraman. OMG!! It is soo funny! He zoomed in on the poster we made to look just like the Idol poster. (Did you know that if you go to the Idol website, they tell you what font and how to do it??) He panned the audience just like they do on TV.

If any of you want to see it, you'll just have to come visit me at The Crossing. Trust me, it's worth the trip! Just ask our friends from New England... they loved it!
