Reviews - What do our customers think?
Relevant and insightful scripts for youth  Jun 23, 2006
The sixteen short scripts in this book, Drama For Real Life, by master storyteller Steven James are all under five minutes performing time. They are event skits meant to be paired with a sermon, worship service, or other program. They require few if any props and each skit comes with tips for actors, simple stage directions which can be altered to fit the stage, and available space and audio-technical suggestions.

The first four skits are about beliefs. The second four are about behavior. The third set is about relationships. The fourth set is made up of portraits based on parables from the Bible. A topical index is included which serves to help the dramatists chose the right skit for an event. The book also includes actor's tips and a checklist for strong church dramas, while each drama has a related Scripture and suggested segues for the service leader to transition from it to a message without losing the tone.

James holds a master's degree in storytelling and is an entertainer, conference speaker, and performer. He understands and relates well to the youth culture of today, and has a gift of being able to communicate with an audience.

James believes that the churches that will prove to be the most effective in reaching the postmodern audience--today's emerging culture--must have three characteristics: they must use story to relate truth; foster honest communication; and create experiential worship. These skits with their use of imagery touch the emotions and draw the audience into the experience, and so are a means to that end.

I recommend this book to leaders of youth drama teams who want to involve more young people in an authentic worship experience. The scripts are relevant and insightful, creative, and do not fit the predictable, tired, overdone mold of much church drama. - Elece Hollis, Christian Book
