Here's a collection of eight hilarious sketches which look at Christianity from a different point of view. The sketches are designed to make your audience laugh out loud, and at the same time look inwardly at themselves. Discover what happens when we really "fall into sin"; when men and women have their roles reversed in marriage; or when a gift of a Bible is presented without any strings attached. This collection is funny, entertaining and thought-provoking for all ages and groups. The skits range from 1 to 5 performers.
After many months of silence, Zacharias lifts his tiny son in his arms and speaks: "You, my child...are one who prepares the way for our Lord...so that all who live in silence will hear His voice." Zacharias now knows peace and is quiet, not silent.
Jesus has been constant trouble and Caiaphas, the high priest, is glad he helped sentence Him to death. But still, Caiaphas wonders ... where did the son of a carpenter get such knowledge and wisdom? And how could He always display such love? Could it be that He really is ... ? Caiaphas rejects the very thought. Otherwise it would mean he murdered the Son of God!
We asked authors, composers, and directors like you to list everything required to produce a hassle-free play. The result was page after page of tips from people with backgrounds in school, church, and community theatre. Checklists and schedules keep you on track as you countdown to the performance.

Plus we have added a handout, "Welcome to the World of Drama," to be used by everyone taking part. It provi...

They're fun, realistic, and most importantly, can be a catalyst for discussions on Christian morals.

The Angels in Heaven are excited that Evangeline has been chosen to announce the great joy of Baby Jesus' birth. Evangeline is doubtful the world will care or that the shepherds will even understand.

Three 5-7 minute skits that will enhance any woman's program.
God has gifted women to be keepers of the hearth where friends and family gather for food and conversation in the traditional center of the home. The three drama skits in FROM HEARTH TO HEART demonstrate how women use their homes as a base for spiritual growth, ministry and missions. But of course, no woman is perfect, and the poignant lessons of "Share and Prayer," "Mary and Martha" and "The Wild VBS Bronco" allow the audience to chuckle at themselves while gaining valuable spiritual insights geared to today's busy lifestyles. Simple sets.

This is just what you need if you are doing a study on the "fruits of the Spirit": love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control. These nine playlets will bring home the truths of God's love toward us. Each one runs about 10-15 minutes. The cast size varies from 2 to 5. Jean shows us what God's love is like in "The Sacrifice." Mike and Carol have "Joyful Woes" as they reminisce about their 27 years together. And in "Tongue Tales" we see how gossip really can hurt. Use them to highlight your worship service or youth meetings.

Now, Barabas says, the burden is a much lighter one, for "I now know your Master not only died for you, but for me also. And now I go to my death as Barabbas, The Acquitted."
