Voice: Valentine was a Christian priest in the Roman Empire 300 years after the death of Jesus Christ.
Boy: My sweetheart, look! I can’t believe it. Is it St. Valentine himself?!
Girl: You are welcome, patron of lovers.
The Priest: My children! I’ve come from the distant past, to remind you of kindness and love friendship and patience in your wicked world.
Boy: Do please take us back to the 1st century when the Roman Emperor Claudius II ruled our country.
The Priest: All right! I see you love each others and your dreams come true!
Свет выключается, голос:
“This is the legend of how St. Valentine’s Day began. When the Roman Emperor Claudius II needed soldiers, he made a law against marrying because he felt that marriage made men want to stay at home instead of fighting wars. But at that time there was a kind priest named Valentine. He couldn’t agree with the emperor’s decision. When he saw that young couples were truly in love, he married them secretly.”
Сценка: выходят девушка и юноша. Они падают на колени и жестами умоляют священника совершить обряд бракосочетания. Священник выполняет их просьбу.
The Priest: My daughter! My son! I declare you – husband and wife!

Soldier 2: To prison! To the Tower!
Ann: Dear friends! St. Valentine’s Day is a wonderful holiday! In the street there is freezing rain, and slush and sleet. The wind is fierce. The skies are grey. I don’t think I’ll go out today.
But here inside the weather’s warm.
There is no trace of wind or storm.
And you just made the morning shine
You said you’d be my Valentine.

My only sunshine.
You make me happy, when skies are gray.

And as deep as the sea!

Танец-композиция в исполнении уч-ся 11б класса.
Ann: On this day we get many Valentines
Our classroom has a mailbox.
That we painted red and gold
We stuffed it with more Valentine,
Than it was made to hold.
When we opened it this morning,
I was nervous as could be.
I wondered if a single one
Had been addressed to me,
But when they’d been delivered,
I felt twenty stories tall,
I couldn’t hold them all.
I liked some of them.
Pupil: I love you more than applesauce
Than peaches and a plum,
Than chocolate hearts,
And cherry tarts,
I love you more than lemonade,
And seven layer cake.
And candy drops,
And thick vanilla shake.
We need friends everywhere!
Make new friends
But keep the old
One is silver, the other – gold
Be my Valentine.

One – I love
Two – I love
Three – I love, I say
Four – I love with all my heart,
Five – I cast away.
Six – he loves,
Seven- she loves,
Eight- they both love,
Nine – he comes,
Ten- he tarries,
Eleven – he courts,
Twelve – he marries.
