Alarm bells sound when Pastor Larry Bowman and his wife, Janet, find out the leader of their denomination, Rev.

  History Of The World

14 pages

12 speaking parts,


Here's an unconventional and entertaining program for children to perform! In Scene 1, "The Garden of Eden," a narrator tells how God became lonely and so created the earth and man to walk upon it. But in Scene 2, "Noah's Ark," sin became too great and the floods came. Later, in Scene 3, "God's Gift," there were a lot more people and some of them pretty mean, like Herod. That's when God decided the earth needed a gift and sent Jesus. From then on, everyone knew for sure that God really loves us all. Easy-to-learn lines for youngsters and easy scenery which can be moved by the rainbow ...

2 m, 2 w or 8 m, 8 w


All four of the these plays involve a woman and man who are strangers to each other until happenstance causes them to meet in a confined space. Through self-disclosure their lives touch and perhaps change. Each play uses the stage “gimmick” of being able to hear the characters’ thoughts as well as their spoken words. Although the themes are on the serious side there is much humor. In "Ducks At Thirty-Five Thousand," a young man who is planning a suicide and a young woman who is planning an abortion meet on an airliner. As he finally reveals his plan, her reac...
