Know Their Name

Brief: a positive short drama on the impact adults can make on the young people of the church.
Written:
Deina Bailey and Scott Wegener
Performance: Lilydale Seventh-day Adventist Church - May 30 (2nd) / July 25 (1st), 2015

  • GIRL ACTOR + GIRL VOICE
  • BOY ACTOR + BOY VOICE
  • WOMAN ACTOR + WOMAN VOICE
  • MAN ACTOR + MAN VOICE

[GIRL ACTOR is sitting down brushing hair, getting frustrated at her hair]

GIRL VOICE Oh honestly, I don’t know why I bother, it doesn’t matter what I do with my hair, everyone at church seems to have better styled hair than me.

AND they’re always happy too. I wish I was always happy like everyone else at church. I guess God blesses them with happiness or something because they read their Bibles every day. I wish I knew the Bible as well as everyone else, but seriously, how do they find the time!

I guess until I learn my Bible and get baptised I should just expect people to walk past without making eye contact. Where’s my Sabbath hairclip… (walks off)

[BOY ACTOR walks on, Flopping into chair]

BOY VOICE Oh man I am soooo tired, I should just go back to bed. It’s not like I’ll be able to stay awake through church anyway. (YAWN)

Compassion Flakes

Brief: A 5-minute drama on the topic of Compassion.
Written: Scott Wegener and the Edinburgh College drama class

Performance: Gilson College (Mernda) Chapel - May 18, 2015
Compassion = sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others

~Narrator: Once upon a time there was a boy

Cameron:  (Highish pitched) Hello

~Narrator: He was a big tough boy

Cameron:  (Deep) Hey

~Narrator: At least he thought he was tough, but this boy had one problem. He had no compassion for anyone.

It didn't matter what bad things happened to people around him, he wouldn't show any sympathy... to anyone. In fact, he was the opposite of compassion!

Christian Soldier

Brief: a short drama leading to a sermon on "The Christian response to war".
Written: Scott Wegener and the Edinburgh College drama class

Performance: Lilydale Seventh-day Adventist Church - May 2, 2015

Venue is set up with 4.2 sound:
- left, right and woofer at rear
- left, right and woofer at front.
There are two featured cast: Chris Christian and GI Joe neighbour.
Also required are two sound operators.

Chris enters slowly reading the Bible, and sits at a table with Weet-bix, SoGood and a bowl of breakfast, and puts Bible down and says a silent grace.

Chris, does three rhythmic tapping scrapes of the bowl - of which the third is the cue to start/sync both sound players - then keeps eating waiting the the sound fx to start

Sound FX begins with plane flying over from rear of church to front and a slightly delayed bomb rumble at rear then a louder blast, a second later, at the front. FX continue throughout with gunfire war sounds etc 

Chris looks up at the sound of plane, looks alarmed at first explosion and at second loud blast they (secretly) wobble the table, knocking over the Weet-bix and they scramble under the table.
