Flexible youth cast.


All the joy of life bubbles out in this delightful play which combines favorite Bible stories with beloved hymns and spirituals. The church is putting on a show but unfortunately the "featured celebrity" can't make it because there are just too many prayers to attend to. So everyone takes turns reading God's lines.

Humor shines throughout from the serpent telling Eve that eating the apple will stop ring around the collar, to the lions saying they'd rather have a pizza than Daniel for supper. Easy to ...

  History Of The World

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 ...
