Description of Activity

Participants share the John Murray play (Activity 3) with the congregation.

Decide on the best time for the production. One option is to talk with the minister about doing a worship service with faith development as the theme. You could then do the play as part of the service. If your congregation has a regular talent show or cabaret, another option is to present the play as part of that event. The last option would be to do it as a stand-alone event.

Decide who is going to do what parts. If you are doing the full play, you will need more than actors. Other participants could work on costumes and props, while others could work on organizing discussion questions for afterward.

Create a production schedule so that everyone knows when their tasks need to be completed. This should include times for the actors to rehearse.

When all of the preparation is done, present the play and have fun.
