SCRIPT:


 

(SETTING:  ENGLAND)


 

Narrator: The Pilgrims that were living in England were unhappy because there was religious persecution.


 

Woman Pilgrim 1: We can`t go on like this anymore.


 

Man Pilgrim 1: I know, we don`t have religious freedom, but  we have to do what our King James said.


 

Woman Pilgrim 1: I don`t understand why he doesn`t allow us to attend the church of our choice.


 

Man Pilgrim 1: I think we should leave England and find a place where we can worship God in our own way.


 

Woman Pilgrim 1: I agree with you.  We have to talk to other people and see who wants to join us.


 

Narrator: So the pilgrims left England in September, 1620 in a a Ship called the Mayflower with 102 people aboard and came to America.


 

(SETTING:  THE MAYFLOWER)


 

Girl Pilgrim 1: Mom, I am hungry, we only eat salted meat and dry bisquits.


 

Woman Pilgrim 1: I know, we have been in this boat for almost two months.  But I am sure that we will soon get off this ship.


 

Man Pilgrim 1: Everybody, Look over there, I can see land!


 

Woman Pilgrim 1: I told you, we are almost there.


 

(SETTING:  LAND – NEAR MASSACHUSETTS)


 

Narrator: When they landed, the Pilgrims needed food to eat.


 

Men Pilgrim: Come everybody!  We have to look for fresh food.


 

Man Pilgrim 2: Let´s get separated to find the food.


 

Woman Pilgrim 2: Yes, I will go this way, and you go that way.


 

Girl Pilgrim 2: Hey, look!  I have some berries.


 

Boy Pilgrim 1: And I found some seeds.


 

Narrator: The first winter in America was long and hard.


 

Man Pilgrim 3: It´s cold. Everybody put on your heavy clothes.


 

Woman Pilgrim 3: And let´s protect our children.


 

Narrator: Many of the pilgrims became ill.


 

Boy Pilgrim 2: I feel sick, mother.


 

Woman Pilgrim 4: Somebody help me!  My son is sick.


 

Woman Pilgrim 3: Give him this plant, he will feel much better.


 

Woman Pilgrim 4: Thank you.


 

Narrator: Then Spring came and everybody was joyful.


 

Children: What a beautiful day!  Let´s dance and play.


 

Narrator: One day a kind Indian came to the village.


 

Chief Indian: Hello People.  I want to offer you my help.


 

Man Pilgrim 4: Welcome to our village.  We appreciate your help.


 

Narrator: Soon more Indians came.


 

Indians: We can show you how to grow your own food.


 

Man Pilgrim 4: Please, tell us how.


 

Indian 1: These are corn seeds.  This is how you should plant them.


 

Narrator: And the Indians showed the pilgrims how to plant corn, and wheat, and other vegetables.  One of  the Indians was called Squanto.


 

Squanto: I want to be your friend.  We also want to teach you how to hunt and fish.


 

Indian 2: We will hunt quail and turkey.  Come let´s go to the forest.


 

Narrator: Then they went to the forest to hunt wild animals.  And when summer ended they wanted to have a feast.


 

Man Pilgrim 1: Now that we have plenty of food, and many new friends, let´s celebrate.


 

Woman Pilgrim 1: Yes, let´s give thanks for all the wonderful things we have, for our food, and for our friends.


 

All Pilgrims: Squanto, tell your people to come with us to join us in a big feast of Thanksgiving.


 

Squanto: Yes, it will be a very special holiday.  My people will bring wild turkeys and fish.


 

(SETTING:  THANKSGIVING FEAST WITH A LONG TABLE)


 

Narrator: The Indians came to the feast.


 

Woman Pilgrim 2: Let´s set the table and put this table cloth.


 

Woman Pilgrim 3: I will put the fruit.


 

Woman Pilgrim 4: And these are the vegetables.


 

Man Pilgrim 3 and 4: Everybody, come and sit down.


 

Narrator: And everyone gave thanks.


 

Women Pilgrim : We give thanks for our food and for our friends.
