Forever Changed, Zacchaeus like you've never seen him.
Most requested - great pulpit filler and "bring-a-friend day."
35 minutes - Costume
Very minimum set.
Forever Changed answers the important question, "what would make a crusty tax collector go out on a limb to meet the latest in a long line of would be messiahs?" This may seem like a fractured Bible story while it mixes outrageous humor, engages the audience, but presents undeniable evidence of a changed life. This play is the most requested and fits perfectly in your morning worship service. It is a favorite for bring-a-friend day, summer camps and prison ministries, (no connection intended).
The Gospel According to Simon Peter (GASP)
60 - 90 minutes
Minimum set required from host
Includes custom sound efx.
The Gospel According to Simon Peter (AKA What About You?) was the first drama I wrote and performed in 1990. Dubbed a one-man passion play by theater critic for the Miami Herald. Peter was instantly my alter ego - we both have foot-in-mouth disease. The drama begins at the Sea of Galilee with a net full of fish and ends right back there with the same results. In between there are highlights to the three year ministry of Jesus in Act I and then Passion week in Act II. There are opportunities for local "Disciples" to participate in the feeding of the five thousand and the Lord's Supper. With many costume additions and a miracle or two along the way, GASP is robust, challenging, and favorite for feature a presentation.

Joseph, The Unexpected Father
No set required, or as much as you want.
oe was a man's man faced with the worst circumstance, "I'm pregnant, and the baby is not yours." It took an angel from God to keep Joe from turning in his Mary and abandoning any idea of going ahead with the marriage. It was probably a quiet wedding, but his life was far from uneventful from there on out. This is a great story for a men's conference or Christmas presentation. Joseph can easily be complimented with with music, lends itself nicely to "Mary did you know," and Joseph's song by Michael Card. As Joe, I'm in contemporary carpenter garb and typically pop up from the audience for a little suprise beginning.
