Shakespearean Santa funny comedy duologue for 2 actors

"Shakespearean Santa" by D. M. Larson
Duologue for 2 Actors

 I am Santa who is as merry as the day is long. Friends, Elves, reindeer, lend me your ears: I come to save Christmas, not to miss it. A reindeer, a reindeer my kingdom for a reindeer! 

 (SANTA looks around) 

 SANTA (continued)
Rudolf! Rudolf! Wherefore art thou Rudolf? I am round like the moon and your nose is bright as the sun. 

To be a reindeer or not to be a reindeer - that is the question. 

Is that a red nose I see before me? 

 (RUDOLF tries to hide his nose) 

Out out red nose! 

Now is the winter of our discontent. Rough winds do shake the darling icicles of December and winter’s lease hath all too long a date. A storm blinds us to the world around us and I have but one wish - for you to guide my sleigh tonight.

Alas I am but one reindeer. 

 This is your moment rudolf - there comes a moment in everyone’s lives where they have a chance to make a difference. 

 Alas I am but a freak - a monster! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor reindeer, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. 

This above all: to thine own self be true. 

What’s in a nose? A nose by any name would smell as well. 

To thine own self be true. 

All that glisters is not gold. 

You are a reindeer - a special reindeer - We know what we are, but know not what we may be. 

Then why would they not let me play any reindeer games and why would they call me names 

If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you give us cookies do we not eat? 

My nose is one that glowed not wisely but too well. 

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. Help us and You will go down in history. 

Though this be madness, there is method in it. 

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and my tummy is rounded with a snack. 

Then we shall fly and save Christmas. 

(RUDOLF and SANTA do a high five and leave determined)
