Dad's Big Surprise - Comedy

John's wife has left him in charge of their infant son, Max, who doesn't seem to want to stop crying.  John is amazed when a "stranger" seems to be able to quiet the infant down. John is then shocked when the stranger claims to be his very own infant son, Max, now all grown up, visiting him from the future.  Through a humorous and touching discussion, John learns his son never grew to be the star athlete he'd always wanted him to be.  Instead, he's a star chef.  Together, father and son discover reasons why they seemed to grow apart over the years, and strive to find a common bond that will once again unite them.  While their discussion is helpful, John is in for a few more surprises, which leads him to believe that perhaps it's not always good to know too much about your future.

Themes: Father's Day; parenting mistakes; looking towards the future; relationships between children and their fathers; expectations for your children; correcting past mistakes; accepting your children for who they are

Faith of Our Fathers - Comedy

Four Biblical fathers (Abraham, Noah, the prodigal son's father, and Joseph--Mary's husband) gather at the local coffee shop and the discussion soon turns to family and children.  Noah remembers the days he was on the ark and says that even though times were tough he wouldn't trade the time he spent with his family.  Abraham admits that to this day Isaac is still afraid to be alone with him (after his near "sacrifice" experience); and the progidgal son's father (or Mr. P as he is known to his friends) wonders if his son will ever return.  Even Joseph seems to have it rough.  He laments, "Do you have any idea what it's like to raise God's son?...He isn't normal."  The main theme here is that through all the ups and downs of life, each father must find a way to connect with his children. 

Themes: Fatherhood; Father's Day; Parenting; Biblical Fathers; getting along with your children; accepting your children no matter where they are in life

Father Figures - Drama

Ranging from a young girl, to teenagers, to adult men and women, a group of children reflect on memories of growing up with their dad in a series of short monologues.  A young girl says her dad "is the bestest daddy in the whole world" and that he "makes itty bitty pancakes" that are small, just like her.  A teen boy has to admit that he thinks his dad is a pretty good guy and is even "cool," although he doesn't want his dad to know it; while a teen girl simply adores her father and the special "date nights" they often have. An adult male reflects on life without his dad, as his father died when the son was only a young boy, and another adult man says his life wouldn't be the same if it weren't for the advice and teachings of his dad.  A grown woman says her dad taught her how to have self-worth and showed her the way a man should treat a woman by treating her mother like a queen.  Finally, a wife appreciates her husband's commitment, both to her and to their family, which  makes them all feel"secure."  At the end, each character thanks all the fathers in the audience and admonishes that "Children are the clothes of a man, so may you each be dressed well."

Themes: Father's Day; Memories of growing up with fathers; How fathers influence and shape the lives of their children; Fatehrs being good examples for their children

Lesson Learned - Comedy/Drama

Sam, a young boy, has his heart set on buying his friend Jimmy's old skateboard.  The only problem is Sam doesn't have all the money.  When Sam asks for an advance on his allowance, his dad is hesitant but in the end agrees if Sam promises to do a few extra chores to earn the money.  Once Sam gets the money he needs, he's on his way to buy the skateboard, but along the way, he sees a new helmet in the store that he just has to have.  After buying the helmet, he doesn't have enough money to pay Jimmy, but promises to pay back the rest of the money at a later date, not realizing Jimmy can't get his new skateboard until he has all the money from Sam.  Pretty soon, Sam finds himself in a bit of a "pickle:" the store won't take back the helmet, and Sam doesn't want to tell his parents what he has done.  In the end, Sam learns a hard lesson from his dad.

Letters to My Son - Drama

This skit is a touching tribute to the memory of a lost loved one, in this case the loss of a father.  As the skit opens, we find a man in his forties reflecting on the memories and childhood of his son, by reading over a journal he's kept for many years.  The journal covers everything from the day the man found out he was going to be a father, through diaper changes, camping trips, how to ride a bike, dating, all the way to the birth of his own grandson.  It is not until the end of the skit, that the audience realizes the man speaking is not the father, but actually the grown-up son. It is here we discover the boy's father died when he was quite young, and that the son continued the tradition of writing in the journal, just as if his father had never left.  When the son's wife ponders why he has done this, the son remarks that he feels this is the way his dad would have wanted it.  To the son, the father never truly died because all the memories of him live on in his mind.  The father has been a steady (though not physical) presence throughout his son's life.  This skit will remind us that even though we have lost those who are dear to us, they are never far from our hearts, and certainly not forgotten.

Themes: Fathers, father's day; reflecting on childhood memories; relationship between a father and son; keeping memories alive; memories of a parent who has passed away

Who's Your Daddy - Comedy

Since the death of her husband, Pam has been trying to find a good role model and new Dad for her young son, Jake.  This hasn't been easy since working two jobs leaves her very little time to meet people. In an act of desperation, Pam begins "speed interviews," trying to learn as much as she can about potential Dads in two minutes or less.  Even this proves harder than she originally thought, when she meets men who are only interested in "cheap labor" for their farms; workaholics who only plan to see Jake for a few hours on the weekend; freakishly organized men who believe in adhering to strict schedules and several other "winners." Pam soon realizes she's made a mistake and that the kind of potential Dad she's looking for can't be found with a job interview.  Or can he?
