I was kicked out from the North Pole.

In this drama scene from 1 act stage play, ‘The Toy Train’ an elf plans on giving an important message to Santa for someone in need.

KATE: I too stopped believing.

BILL: But you’re an elf.

KATE: We are all responsible for our own belief system.

BILL: But you see Santa everyday. How can you stop believin’?

KATE: I became jealous of the other elves. If you want to know the truth, I was kicked out from the North Pole.

BILL: You were?

KATE: Mrs. Claus had it out for me.

BILL: Kicked you to the curb?

KATE: You can say that.

BILL: Oh, so I guess there’s really no hope that Santa can save my son.

KATE: There is.

BILL: There is?

KATE: Yeah, because I’ve got to go back…I’ve been thinking about this since I got to New York City but meeting you, solidifies that. So I guess I’ll be traveling back to the North Pole tonight. Well, I’ve got to now, I’ve got to ask for forgiveness and once I’m accepted back, I’m going to talk to Santa privately about you and your son Christian, and I’m, I’m going to ask him to grant you his yearly gift.

BILL: I don’t know what to say.

KATE: It’s okay.

BILL: You know, my son believes in him more than anything. I’ve never seen him so animated before than when he spoke about Santa Claus.

KATE: I’ll bet.

BILL: He almost made a believer out of me again.

KATE: There’s no reason not to believe.

BILL: Life teaches us the real things…

KATE: At the cost of our imagination, hopes, dreams.

BILL: Yeah, I guess. Why do you want to help me?

KATE: You asked.

BILL: I never met an elf before and never imagined I ever would, especially down here in a crumblin’, moist subway station.

KATE: It’s not so bad.

BILL: Train is takin’ ages anyway. I may have to walk instead, jeez it’s just freezin’ out here.

KATE: The train is only two stops away.

BILL: Is it?

KATE: My ears, remember?

BILL: Oh, right, right, wow, sonic hearin’, not bad.

KATE: You won’t believe the sh’t I overhear in New York. It’s incredible, well, not all of it is…some of it can be pretty shocking, especially when it’s from the grumpy ones, but I don’t think those ones always mean what they say, they’ve just lost some hope.

BILL: Yeah. Yeah you can say that again.

KATE: Your son is going to be alright.

BILL: Hope so, I appreciate that. What’s your name?

KATE: Kate.

BILL: Kate. I was expectin’ some weird elf name or somethin’.

KATE: No. Just Kate.

BILL: Kate, right. I’m Bill.

KATE: Bill…good luck.

BILL: You too. I hope Santa takes you back and you behave yourself.

KATE: (laughs) Can’t make no promises.

BILL: Right, right. See you around. If I ever make it to the North Pole, I’ll look you up.

KATE: It’s not really, well I don’t wanna hurt your feelings Bill but we don’t let humans in…

BILL: Oh…I see. Right, what was I thinking? Haha

KATE: Sorry to upset you, it’s for your own good…

BILL: It’s fine, I understand, you don’t need to explain it all. You don’t make the rules Kate and it ain’t your fault, but one day, maybe Santa’s gotta change somethin’ about that, you know? Give us all a sign or somethin’?…
