Children and Christmas

Christmas DressIs there anything that excites children more than Christmas? Six-year-old Charlotte transported me back to my own childhood by dancing into church decked out in a fancy red and green Christmas dress the first Sunday in November.

Wonder of wonders, God jump started this love affair between children and Christmas by sending His promised Redeemer as a baby. Yet, sadly, many children–and adults–in our modern world know little about the real meaning of Christmas.  

AlphaStarDrama offers Christmas drama sketches to help hurting people meet the living God. We challenge you to think of creative ways to use them to reach the people in your community with Light for Life this Christmas.

“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”
― Charles DickensA Christmas Carol

Gabriel’s Strange Missions to Earthlings

Conversations with Gabriella is one of my favorite scripts! Why? Gabriella. She’s a delightful,
but somewhat daft young angel, who is distressed by Gabriel’s strange missions to Earthlings.
Why should the great Gabriel leave Heaven to deliver messages to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and
a few shepherds?Christmas Angel

You may know the story, but Gabriella sure didn’t. And neither do many of your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Why not plan a Christmas tea, holiday luncheon, or dinner drama that shares God’s incredible plan of redemption in a fun setting?

Conversations with Gabriella features four five-minute sections separated by music. It can be performed as readers theater or staged with scenery, costumes, props, and flair. The musical selections between sections give a sense of time passing and enhance the performance.

Conversations with Gabriella is FREE from now until October 16. Why not take advantage of this opportunity to plan a special Christmas outreach in your community? You’ll find great joy in sharing the true meaning of Christmas.

Trying to Impress God

Actors performing a sketch

Adam and Cain in “What’s Wrong With Vegetables?”

“What’s Wrong With Vegetables?” includes a hilarious exchange between Cain and Adam about trying to impress God with prize vegetables, but it also opens open doors to discuss what really matters to God.

I hope you’ll find a way to use it or one of the other free scripts featured in this Free Fall Audio Impact Special.

The picture of Broadway actor George Merritt portraying Adam and Isi from Nigeria portraying Cain at the CITA (Christians in Theatre Arts) Conference in Toronto brings back delightful memories of their rich, resonant voices and interaction. Wish you’d been there!
