Good things come in small packages [Christmas drama]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church Christmas Concert - December 21, 2019

[Chris walks in, optionally whistling “We three kings”, carrying a chair and sits centre stage toward the audience. As sits down Courier comes in.]

Courier: Christmas gift for... Chris?

Chris: That’s me! Who’s it from?

Courier: Err... [looks at phone].... God?? Sign here, please.

[Chris signs Courier’s phone, a tiny gift, size of a wedding ring box, is handed over and courier leaves. Chris looks at it a little confused and then begins to try and open it, but doesn’t make any progress before Courier enters again.]

Courier: Sorry, had another Christmas gift for you too. Sign here.

Chris: Who’s this one from? [signs]

Courier: Err.... Ssss-tan?? [hands over shoe box size gift]

Chris: Who's Stan?

Christmas Birthday Speech [a fun motivational speech for those who suffer with birthdays near Christmas]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church Christmas Concert - December 14, 2019

While being asked to share a memory about Christmas i started reflecting, and the more i reflected of Christmases past, the more upset I got.
You see, there are some who are less fortunate during the annual Christmas festivities.
It is those who have birthdays around Christmas.

Is there anyone here who, like myself, has a birthday close to Christmas??
Please come up and make a stand with me, for this historic moment.

For too long, people like us have suffered during Christmas. Patiently we have waited, all year, as we celebrate everyone else’s birthdays. And when it finally comes to our birthdays, all we get are but a brief mention, and then everyone collectively moves on to Jesus' birthday celebrations. And it’s not even his real birthday date, peoples!

It is now, after all these years, that we make a stand.

Duel of Faiths [Drama about community being the main attraction of church]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - December  7, 2019

(Quite, country background sounds play, soft church bell ringing.)

Good sets up a church, left side of stage (could be a small cardboard cutout)
Innocent walks on stage looking around as if wondering where they should go.
Good invites Innocent over to church. Innocent is weary but starts to move that way...

(Dramatic choir music begins [edited version of Duel of Fates])
Door opens, revealing a smokey scene.
Innocent and Good both look over curiously

(Second hit of choir singing seconds later)
Strobe light flashes in back room too

(Choir stops, orchestra starts)
Evil walks in a few paces, black attire. Cape?
Looks around audience a little, then locks gaze onto Innocent, who is just staring

(Choir starts again)
Good holds a medium size Magnet up, showing labels:
  • Music (top)
  • Bible study (bottom)

Pulls in Innocent a little

Who's Leaving, What's Staying... [skit to anounce a departing leader from a club]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - November  23, 2019

Abbott: Well, it's that time of year where some new leaders will be joining our club, some leaders are staying, and sadly other leaders are leaving.

Costello: Hey, have you got a list of what each leader is doing?

Abbott: I certainly do.

Costello: Well, let's hear it, I really want to know which leaders are leaving so we can give them a gift.

Abbott: OK, I’ll tell you their names, but you need to know some of our leaders have some strange pet names, so let’s see:
[read slowly] Who’s leaving, What’s staying, and I Don’t Know is joining.

Blossom [Drama about good and bad lables affecting women]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - October 26, 2019

A powerful and emotionally charged drama set to a harp and violin version of ‘Meditation’ by Massenet. (times will vary per recording) eg youtube.com/watch?v=rNNphUmKiJw

The script is tightly synced with the music’s swells, with a trained, flowing dancer. The aim is to connect the audience to the woman, feel her pain, (some will even relate, while others will be made aware of women struggling through such things) and then feel her joy as she has victory over the depths of Satan’s evilness.

This woman is to be totally broken from these initial unfair and confronting words, to the point of despair, and then is ultimately built up from the depth of Satan’s lies and see the ultimate inspiring truth: she is a loved child of God, as is every member of the audience.

Greedy-up [skit about greed and generosity]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - October 5, 2019

[Set to some fitting movie soundtrack music backing, like Indiana Jones's 'the snake pit']

Balloon-Creator pumps up balloons constantly, (8 in total on stage) not tying them off, just holding one once it’s pumped and waits, and hands it over each time someone approaches.

Gree-Dee, seeing the first balloon is ready, rushes to get the first balloon, and takes it.

Jen-Ross politely approached for the first balloon but missed and waits politely.

Gree-Dee snatches the second, third and fourth balloon as they are finished (before Jen-Ross can get their first balloon - reaching out politely each time to take it but missing out). Gree-Dee now has two balloons in each hand and looks smug.
