Do you want drama without the, well, drama?
Need something awesome for all-age worship, sketches for schools or just want to bring a well-known Bible story alive with the smack-between-the-eyes relevance it got from Jesus?
Fresh scripts launch God’s timeless word like a rocket. “Parables as Jesus would have told them – witty, punchy and thought-provoking.” Christmas and Easter? Sorted.
Some quiet and meditative, some a-pun-a-minute – there’s a script for every occasion. Meet Elijah’s ravens on holiday. Meet texting angels. Meet the Big Bad Cat. Then slow down and relive Good Friday through the eyes of one who was there – Jesus, remember me.
Using puppets to express our doubts and confusions is a great way to address the unasked questions. A grandma confessed after one puppet show that she had never understood that Bible story, until now – Click!
Drama isn’t just for kids. We take a sideways look at our grown-up busyness with the gameshow ‘Real Christian’, and perhaps in the laughter we can find a truth.
Limited resources? No problem. Based on many years’ experience with drama and puppetry for schools, churches and community groups, these scripts are immensely practical to suit your room, rehearsals and recruits.
Each script has suggestions for characters and props, and the hands-on hints for staging make drama a ‘can-do’ option, so you can concentrate on the message.
To complete the package, the final chapters outline methods for working with puppets and give pointers for using drama outdoors. There are lots of ideas for constructing your own puppet theatre, with designs from small, roll-away up versions to folding, semi-permanent ones.
This is the first in the ‘A Bucketful of Ideas’ series. It is based on the international blog of church resources, The Reflectionary, written by Fay Rowland – lecturer, writer and, as it so happens, puppeteer.
Ever wondered what you need to be a Real Christian?

“Time-Travel TV is my favourite script … I always enjoying routine time travel and ‘wiggling’!”
“The introductions to each script are the keys to their convenience, it was good to know which props to expect, which items were optional and some scripts even gave clear permission to improvise and paraphrase.”
“Very thankful for the puppet theatres section at the back.”
“30 Pieces of Chocolate is a fine pun-run.”
