Reader's Theater scripts for Christian drama or sermon illustrations description

Reader's Theater is dramatic literature presented by readers who are seated and who read the script using the techniques of oral interpretation, characterization, and pantomime to create a theatrical effect.

The scriptural passages presented in this fashion breathe new life into what we “think we have heard.” Some of these Reader's Theater selections also contain the elements of a skit, with additional dialogue added to the biblical narrative. In this case we mix the dramatic genres to create a Reader's Theater skit. The Narrator stands off to the side and reads the story while a contemporary re-enactment of the biblical narrative takes place by readers who sit at center stage.

Reader's Theater provides very memorable introductions, conclusions, or mid-way examples for the pastor as he presents the church sermon. It is particularly effective as a way to present a Bible story, especially if you update it with current clothing and props; for example, the story of the "woman caught in adultery," could be done with the Pharisees in business suits and the woman in a glamorous evening gown. It gives your drama ministry a first-hand opportunity to be creative and translate complex drama to the church stage without having to fuss with elaborate sets and line memorization.Take the Reader's Theater challenge, and link with the pastor to create a sermon illustration that will compliment any topical or expository sermon.
