Additional Drama Resources

Already included in the "Wind in the Wilderness" worship series are drama resources. However, here are a few other favorites that can be used for Easter.

 

Favorite Easter Scripts:

  1. “A World Without Jesus” by John Cosper

    • A reader's theater script that wonders what the world would be like if Jesus never came. Would it really be as different as we would like to think?

  2. ​“I Give Up” by Joe Caddy

    • This is a short reader's theater-type script that explores the purpose behind the practice of “giving up” something for Lent.

  3. "I am Alive"

    • Jesus’ death brought pardon for our sins but we often overlook that His resurrection brought us power and new life. “If you know that I’m alive, why do you keep treating me like I’m not?”

  4. “Jesus and Me” by Della Grace Stevens

    • The script reinforces the point that Jesus longs to be a constant, revolutionary presence in our lives. Often used as a camp skit, the Bill Booth Theater Company has often performed this piece as a structured improv paired with a devotional song.
