Here are five Bible story skits that will captivate hearts, and because they are written in rhyme, it is super easy for young children to memorize their parts. Laughter will fill the air when your children perform "Noah's Zoo." At just the right moment, the narrator, perplexed and bewildered, recites, "By the time he was through, Noah had himself a zoo!" In "Daniel and the Friendly Lions," one of the lions stands and declares, "I'm certainly no dummy...This man, Daniel, doesn't belong in my tummy!" They will delight any audience - any day of the year.
A humorous allegory where well-known church weaknesses are diagnosed and cured. The patients are Mrs. Over-sensitive, Madame U.R. Highbrow, Elder Over-pious, Mary Jane Tardy, Mrs. Willing Worker, Ima Gossip, and Sam Wealthy. Good doctors and nurses, with a little surgery, effect some cures.
These seven skits look at Christmas from different angles. Some titles include "Grandma, the Lights Are Out," about faith in our Lord and His provisions for us; "The Perfect Gift," and why no one will accept it; "The Christmas Question" which asks what will you do with Jesus; and the humorous skit, "The Package." While each skit offers a fresh perspective, common to all is the miracle of Jesus' birth and sacrifice. A resource you'll use for many years! Performance time: 10 to 30 minutes each.

Join Jack Foley, an ordinary guy, with his wife, Kate, and son, Brian, on a gripping spiritual journey as they encounter the true significance of the "Beatitudes" in an extraordinary way. From being skeptical seekers to becoming fervent followers of God, the call of Christ beckoned them - and summons us. Each skit (between 2 to 5 actors) passes through their lives and deals with a separate Beatitude. Each skit runs 10 to 20 minutes.
This collection of five Bible-based skits will enhance teen drama ministries throughout the year. Christmas is the perfect time to have "A Chance at a Wonderful Life." But we quickly learn that without Christ our chance for heaven is zero. Or maybe you need a positive "Change of Heart" like Paul did. Do you ever feel like you are on a "Roller Coaster" when you realize how the small decisions you make today will determine your destiny? Learning to work together is quite evident in "Body Parts." Finally, in "The Big Candy Bar" shallow commitments are revealed. This great resource book ...
We asked authors, composers, and directors like you to list everything required to produce a hassle-free play.

Plus we have added a handout, "Welcome to the World of Drama," to be used by everyone taking part. It provi...
The Christian Orchestra contains sixteen sketches which dramatically expose the key principles of correlated Scripture passages. The sanctity of life, sectarianism, prayer, the Holy Spirit, parenting and growth in grace are among the topics featured in the sketches.
A series of ten playlets, each three to five minutes long, dealing with an application of one of the Ten Commandments in modern life. Although written for performance in a church sanctuary, they are equally effective on a conventional stage.
Here's a collection of seven "confessions" that are guaranteed to add excitement to youth meetings and give your teens some reinforcement about their chosen way of life. Among the topics covered are the first day of high school, running for school office, and dating. Each skit runs 5 to 10 minutes and involves just a few characters. Perform them with minimal rehearsals, or just let the kids read their parts for some impromptu role playing. They're fun, realistic, and most importantly, can be a catalyst for discussions on Christian morals.
Reader's theatre is a time-honored approach to presenting Christian drama and this book has it all. The author explains how to cast, stage, rehearse, and effectively present the four reader's theatre programs he adapted from the Bible. Titles include a Christmas story, "The Coming of the Messiah," with 6 readers and an Easter story, "The Passion Play," with 9 readers. Two others can be used anytime: "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego," with 9 readers and "The Story of Ruth," with 7 readers.
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.
"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...
