Synopses & Reviews
Drama, Skits, & Sketches 2 is a huge collection of tried and tested youth group skits that are some of the most creative, fun-to-perform skits and sketches ever! And, comes from the best-selling life of The Ideas Library. Full of humor, any or all of them can be used purely for entertainment. But the majority of them can also be for illustrating a lesson, driving home a point, or for kickstarting a Bible study or discussion. The subject/scripture index makes it easy to find the drama that will meet your needs. You'll have your young people laughing and learning at the same time.
Here are 62 brand-new, youth-group-tested scripts you can use to introduce a topic with flair . . . To retell a Bible story with humor . . . To apply your lessons with poignancy. And they're flexible, too -- have fun with them as informal, no-prep reader's theater, or rehearse them seriously for polished performances. - Scripture Sketches . . . Don't despair if your students can't tell the difference between Beelzebub and Barnabas -- the Bible will be brought to life for them as they act out scriptural episodes, stories, and passages. (And on page 6 is an index to all this book's scripts by Bible reference. Teaching the Prodigal Son? 1 Corinthians? Exodus? We've got a script for you!) - Contemporary Sketches . . . Off with the togas, on with the tank tops. Here are right-now, real-life scripts for everything from event announcements (that you can tailor to your own events) to dealing with emotional scars. Thanks to the topical index on page 7, you can zip right to the script that fits your meeting. - TV Takeoffs . . . In a TV world of talk shows and sitcoms, sketches based on TV shows always kick off lively discussions. Since all these scripts are also humorous, they're great as openers at camps and conferences, too. - Monologues . . . Does your youth group's dramatic talent reside in only one or two students? Or do you want to raise interest in starting a drama ministry? A monologue is your ticket -- one-person scripts that require little or no costumes or props, yet can be as powerful as a three-act play. - To the Tune of CCM (And More) . . . Take the music many of your students listen to, and use it for dramatic purposes! These scripts each use a song by a Christian artist (or a songwhose lyrics encourage or challenge Christians).
