The twenty scripts you'll find in Instant Puppet Skits have something in common: each features a Bible character who met Jesus and shares a personal insight. John the Baptist tells his would-be, disgusted director that he is not the star attraction, that his purpose was to prepare people to follow Jesus, and while Lazarus tries to collect a refund on his burial, he explains eternal life for those who believe. And you'll find that the scripts have other things in common too:
- Scripts have no more than four puppets on stage at any one time, and you can re-use the same four "actors" with different costumes to limit the costs of the puppets!
- Four or less puppets per script makes it easy for you to recruit enough puppeteers!
- Yet the audience is involved. In "Fish and Loaves", the audience acts the part of the crowd, each of them stuffed with food.
- After each script you'll find group discussion points in the "For Deeper Learning" section.
Q: Are these skits appropriate for only 2 puppets? We have 1 student and 2 teachers. I'd like to be sure that we can manage with this small staff. Please pray that we will have more volunteer.
The skits utilize no more than 4 puppets, so you should be able to do them with as few as 2 people.
Q: CD are included? I'd like to purchase Instant Puppet Skits: 20 Stories From People Who Met Jesus, CBD Stock #WW424588, but I'm not sure whether CD are included or not.
Yes, 2 CDs are included with this book.
