Christmas Dramas

  • Dramas from Scripture and from classic Christmas stories that are perfect for advent services and Christmas banquets or parties
  • Casts with professional actors in costume along with spontaneous audience participation to complete the casts
  • 45 to 60 minutes in length and adapted for all ages

“A Christmas Carol”

  • The classic story by Charles Dickens about miser Ebeneezer Scrooge and his encounters with three Christmas spirits that change his life, enlisting audience members to complete the cast—all in costume

 “Divine Gift”

  • A mother’s glimpse into the future of her precious baby boy, a child promised to Mary by an angel and fathered by God, a boy who would grow into a man who would change the world
    (Maranatha actors as Mary and Jesus with audience members completing the cast)

  •  “The Gift of the Magi” 

    • A heart-warming drama based on O’Henry’s short story about a young couple willing to make a sacrifice one for the other in order to buy each other a Christmas gift—with the help of audience members

    “The Messiah Has Come!”

    • Insights from Biblical accounts as King Herod, Anna and Simeon, and the Magi come to realize that that the Promised One has come as a baby born in Bethlehem.

     “Sing of His Glory” 

    • The stories behind three favorite Christmas carols, bringing more meaning to their being sung today—“What Child Is This?” “Silent Night,” and “I Wonder as I Wander”—with cast and audience voices lifted in song (This drama works well within a church service time frame.  It can also be used at a Christmas party with the option of the story behind the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” to introduce the program.)

     “The Shoemaker Welcomes Christmas” 

    • An old familiar story with a unique approach at Christmas as a lonely shoemaker reaches out to others in need (cast from the audience) as he waits for a visit from the Lord.
