  God's Top 10 List

Skit by

48 pages

Cast: 2 to 7 flexible.


"God's Top Ten List" presents the Ten Commandments in a fresh light. The words written on stone tablets so long ago are brought to modern situations, such as a fender-bender, parent-volunteers on a school project, remembering the Sabbath and gossiping about some things that should be left unsaid. These ten skits hold a mirror up to the audience that allows them to laugh at their own shortcomings. Emphasis is placed not so much on the "Thou shalt not's", but on the "why's." The actors will enjoy presenting the humorous and ironic situations and will themselves learn through the experienc...

Have you ever wondered about the people who wrote the hymns that you sing in church every Sunday? What events in their lives led them to sit down and write these songs - songs that would eventually became "hymnal classics" in the Christian church?

In addition, a beautiful, original song "Bringing a Hymn to Life," is also included. Told in a series of vignettes, this play is incredib...
