DESCRIPTION: Salvation History in 60 minutes or less!
In this brilliant comedy, a troupe of threadbare vaudeville performers are challenged to tell the story of God's plan for our salvation, from Adam and Eve to the Apocalypse, with a little help from the kids in the audience. The perfect combination of laughter and learning!
The actors, who are down on their luck, are given a chance to audition for a play called "The Body of Christ", a modern version of the medieval mystery pageants. The actors put together and perform funny skits in the hopes of getting cast. Each skit makes a point and together they form a panorama of Salvation History, showing the scope of God's love for us. Skits include Adam & Eve, Cain & Abel, Noah & the Ark, Moses & the Red Sea, David & Goliath, the Nativity, the Wise Men, the Crucifixion.
CAST: 2 men; 1 woman; plus volunteer children from the audience,. The volunteer children appear in sketches but speak no lines.
LENGTH: One-Act. Playing time: about 45 min.
REQUIREMENTS: Unitary set, can be abstract. Can be performed anywhere, even outdoors with no set; simple props and costumes.
