In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants present a WCUU with seven On-Air roles and a Studio Crew which 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, using volunteers for On-Air People and Studio Crew. You might invite the Kid for the Day to be the Anchor or Roving Reporter.
Give copies of Leader Resource 4 to the youth who will be the UUville Citizens and have a co-leader or adult volunteer take them aside to prepare their roles.
Give participants who need to follow the script a moment to look it over. Review it with them if you have participants with limited reading skills. Note: This script asks the Roving Reporter to improvise dialogue with the UUville Citizens; coach as necessary. You might suggest the Roving Reporter talk first, very briefly, with each of the Citizens about what they are presently doing (riding a bicycle, etc.), and then, briefly again, about the Citizen's death beliefs.
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.
At the end of the broadcast, ask participants how it went. Ask them to summarize how typical Unitarian Universalists respond to today's Big Question: "What happens when we die?" Do they think non-UUs would understand Unitarian Universalism better after seeing the WCUU broadcast?
