In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Explain the roles in this WCUU broadcast: three On-Air People (Co-Anchor 1, Co-Anchor 2 and NUUs (pronounced "News") Analyst), as many Pantomime Players as you care to use and a Studio Crew. The Studio Crew might include a director, a floor director, a camera operator, a sound engineer, a lighting director, a script supervisor and multiple production assistants.
Assign roles or invite volunteers for On-Air People and Studio Crew. You might offer the Kid for the Day a chance to be a Co-Anchor or the NUUs Analyst. Ask other members of the group to be Pantomime Players. Explain that they will follow the instructions of the Co-Anchors; they will be asked to act but not to speak.
Distribute scripts to all who will need them. You may wish to read through the script together with the On-Air People if not all participants are fluent readers. Other youth can finalize the studio set-up while the On-Air People prepare—but, do not encourage a lengthy or detailed rehearsal.
Tell the group when the show should end to keep the session on schedule; assign a Studio Crew member (director or floor director) to watch the time.
Begin the broadcast.
Afterward, ask participants how it went. Lead a discussion with this question:
The broadcast offered a few beliefs that Unitarian Universalists share. Can you name any others?
Affirm that Unitarian Universalist Principles and values are strong and clear, yet broad enough to embrace most Unitarian Universalists' individual beliefs, even when they conflict with one another.
Mention that as Unitarian Universalists we share a religious heritage that goes back more than a thousand years. Our history is another way we can answer the question, "What are we?"
