There's no Scrooge in this Easter play, but true to Charles Dickens' form, there are several mysterious nighttime visitors. Kevin and Kim Marley die in an accident, leaving Jeri and their other teenage friends grief-stricken and confused. The Marleys visit Jeri at midnight and tell her that three spirits will visit her and reveal differing views of what happens...  read more
THE CASE OF THE CONSPICUOUS CROSS
A Lenten play for youth
By: Keith Ellerbrock
(Duration: 20 minutes; Speaking Cast: 1 female, 2 males, 6 either, 9 total cast)
We all have crosses to bear—but none as obvious as Sam's. It's huge, it's cumbersome and it's inconvenient. Humor ensues as Jesus asks him to carry it throughout his day and he reluctantly agrees. First stop: work. His boss observes, "Ever since you got that cross, you haven't been making the kind of deals that put the company ahead." He loses a promotion. Then...  read more

     Flexibility: doubling possible, gender flexible)
Isn't it about time to celebrate dear old Dad? Use as many children as you like in this unique Father's Day program that can be part of a worship service. With songs by the junior choir and recitations by a variety of boys and girls, the importance of fathers today and throughout Bible history is told.

     Flexibility: 1-20 extras, doubling possible, gender flexible)
Your church's teens will enthusiastically recreate this living scrapbook of scenes of those who dared to step out from their comfort zone. A foreign exchange student joins a lackluster youth group and is amazed at their religious freedom. His joyful attitude prompts the group to see that Christ himself came to visit, all because one teen wasn't afraid to be...  read more
HEAVENBOUND
By: Al Schneider
(Duration: 10-15 minutes; Speaking Cast: 3 females, 2 males, 1 either, 6 total cast; 
     Flexibility: gender flexible)
Ascension Sunday—what is it? A group of lively children, including the new kid, the clueless one, and the shy girl who knows her Bible, debate and discuss one of the lesser-known holy days of the church calendar (celebrated forty days after Easter) with typical childish charm. Jesus rising into heaven reminds them of "Superman ... or a Power Ranger!" Through the...  read more
KNOWING JESUS
A youth sunrise service

     Flexibility: gender flexible)
From the stable to the cross, Jesus had a varied but undeniable impact on those he encountered. Mary knew him as her son. He taught Peter to fish for people. He exposed rich Matthew’s poverty. To the Woman at the Well, he was the giver of living water. To the Woman with the Hemorrhage, the Great Physician. One of the 5,000 knew him as his Provider. He was the...  read more
NATIVITY IDOL

(Duration: 45-60 minutes; Speaking Cast: 6 females, 4 males, 10 total cast; 
     Flexibility: 1-15 extras)
"This… is Nativity Idol!" Using the same format as the popular TV show, contestants compete for a role in the Christmas pageant. That’s where the similarity ends, however. All the judges are wholly original: the nasty and condescending Prudence Peacock, has-been actress Bea Sting, and aging hippie singer Misty Dawn. Contestants and the role they’re auditioning...  read more
OPERATION CHRIST CHILD
A Christmas comedy for youth groups
By: Daniel Wray
(Duration: 40 minutes; Speaking Cast: 1 female, 7 males, 7 either, 15 total cast; 
     Flexibility: gender flexible)
There’s something brewing at headquarters. Archangel Saraphiel interrupts the angels’ softball game for an emergency meeting to discuss an “intervention in the human world.” He rolls out the master plan of Christ’s birth (with PowerPoint projected images). The angels receive specific assignments to be fulfilled in accordance with prophecy: arranging the census...  read more
