Pancake Day Assembly

Cast of 30. Duration 15 - 20 minutes. Maybe a case of too many cooks in the kitchen? And whoever said flipping a pancake was easy? Definitely time somebody in the kitchen gave up something for Lent - could the belly size of that Master Chef, Monsieur Bon Appetit,  be a clue?

This is a light-hearted assembly based on Shrove Tuesday - otherwise known as Pancake Day or Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday!

Sample Text:

Narrator:         Hmm! But the whole point of Shrove Tuesday

Chef 13:          Is that it’s the last day before Lent!

Chef 14:          Which is all about giving up things.

Narrator:         And how long does Lent last?

Chef 15:          Well, traditionally it’s forty days

Chef 16:          Between Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday

Chef 17:          Or around six weeks leading up to Easter.

Narrator:         OK. So going back to Shrove Tuesday, why the pancakes?

Chef 18:          Well, I guess they’re a way of using up things like eggs, milk and sugar before this time of fasting?

Narrator:         (Clapping) Ah! You guess right! Congratulations! So, what are we waiting for?

(Enter Master Chef)

Master Chef:   Or shouldn’t that be, who are we waiting for? Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten Moi?

Narrator:         Ah! You must be

Master Chef:   Monsieur Bon Appetit!

Narrator:         A fine name

Master Chef:   For a fine chef! The best! Moi? Je suis magnifique!

Narrator:         (Aside) And so very humble! (To Master Chef) Monsieur, we are delighted you could join us today!

Master Chef:   Mon plaisir! (Looking around) So, where is mon cuisine?

(Everyone looks around in confusion)

Narrator:         Er, I think it might be helpful if you could try and stick to English.

Master Chef:   (Huffily) As you wish! So, where is my pan? Where are my ingredients? Where

Narrator:         (Interrupting) Oh don’t worry! We’ve got all that sorted! Look! You have an army of chefs to help you!

Master Chef:   (Muttering to audience) Hmph! Ever heard the expression ‘Too many cooks spoil the broth’?

Narrator:         Sorry, we didn’t quite catch that!

Master Chef:   Oh don’t worry! Just saying what a delightful set of helpers I have here today! So, let us start.

(Enter Chefs 19 - 28  with ‘kitchen props’; chefs proceed to prepare pancakes under watchful eye of Master Chef, who stands over and checks their every move, occasionally stepping in to show them how it is done ‘properly’)
