“Do You Wish You Could Find Short, Meaningful Christian Skits That Have A Strong Christian Message & That Are Actually Entertaining?

If So, You Must Read This Now!”

  Hi I’m Gracie Dickeson 
Christian Playwright and Author of This
Collection of Short Christian Plays and Skits
Dear Fellow Christian,Are you searching for Christian plays and skits, but you just can’t find what you’re looking for?
Well, you’re not alone…

Did you know that over 80% of people looking for Christian skits and plays on the internet, end up frustrated and annoyed from wasting time and money on skits that simply don’t work!

And when they do find a skit that fits what they are looking for, it’s usually badly written with cheazy dialogue and just too long and complex!

 

Now, because you are here right now, you already know how powerful skits are in sharing the positive Christian message, whether it be at a Church, school or youth group.
Which means you’re just looking for short, easy skits that are entertaining, funny and have a strong Christian message, right?

 

On your search for Christian skits, are you constantly coming up against these problems?

You can’t find the skits you are looking for
  
     The skits that you have found are low quality
 
     The dialogue in many skits is tedious and uninteresting
 
     Most skits are just too long (you really just want something, short, simple & effective)
 
     There are few skits online that are not cheazy
 
     You simply can’t find what you want and you are sick of looking!

Not only that, but you have found that most playwrights and scripts don’t give you any additional information like:

What Bible reference the skit is based on
 
      Contextual notes – detailing the idea & background of the skit
 

      Staging directions – explaining the best way to stage the skit
 

      Professional script layout – (many playwrights simply don’t use the right script structure)
 

      Duration, Genre and Target Audience – (basic, but essential items of a skit)

These are really the simple things, that many Christian playwrights take for granted leaving everything up to you to work out, but it doesn’t have to be this way!

 

 

Then you have come to the right place!

 

 

 

 

 

 

You see my team and I have been doing research regarding people exactly like YOU; people who are looking for Scripture based skits to do in their Christian environment.

Instead of us just plonking some plays on a website and hoping you buy them, we have spent alot of time asking and researching exactly what you want and what problems you are encountering and now we are very confident that we have come up with answers to all of these.

      Specifically Written For The Christian Environment
 

      Guaranteed To Make Your Audience Laugh (that’s an actual guarantee)
 

      No Experience Required To Put Them On

      You Can Perform Them As Many Times As You Wish (there are no royalty structures)
 

      Leave Your Audience Feeling Uplifted

 


For a Christian skit to be effective at spreading the gospel, it has to contain a well written storyline, an engaging message and characters with whom the audience can identify.

My characters often provide a different perspective of the well-known Christian stories. They often have a fun, humorous element and can be adapted to the local context.

Unless the script is written by an experienced playwright with actual theatre experience… it is unlikely that all 3 elements will be present.

Below shows the level of detail you recieve in each play, which you wont find in many other Christian play scripts.

The Secret To Putting On A Great Christian Skit Is Simply Using A Professionally Written Script!


One of my biggest surprises was to find my plays not only great fun for the actors to perform (who ranged from young children to adults)… but also they were well-received by the audience (young and old)…

Imagine Not Having To Worry About…
Needing to spend weeks planning and rehearsing – They are written specifically to be produced in a very short time, some even in a couple of hours!
How to put the skit on – If you have little or no experience putting on a Christian skit, then don’t worry, you will be doing a skit written by a professional playwright with 20 years experience and who has personally tested each one herself!
Needing to spend large amounts of money on props and costumes – The suggested costumes for most of the skits can be acquired for free or at very little cost.
Being dissapointed with cheazy or low quality dialogue – These skits have been written by a professional playwright; not only that, each skit has been fine tuned and tested so you can be assured that they actually work!
Needing to pursuade people to be part of these skits – As soon as they have seen one of these skits, they will be jumping at the chance to be part of the next one, (especially the natural actors).
The length of the skit being too long – Just about all people looking for Christian skits are looking for short skits; why? People don’t want to be spending hours, days, weeks preparing for a skit that lasts an hour. People want SHORT skits, that are quick and easy to prepare and quick and easy to present!
How Would You Like To Have A Great Experience Putting On ASkit At Your Church, School Or Youth Group?
“Your plays are different to any other plays we have tried at our church and we have received so much great feedback.You really are quite gifted at writing Christian play scripts. I would recommend your plays to anyone.”

— Josie Allan
Austin, Texas

After years of encouraging feedback, I’m now convinced that…

Putting On A Skit Is One Of The Best Ways

 

To Get People Involved While Spreading The Message!


Everyone loves and appreciates a story about people who have concerns and attitudes just like themselves.
 

That’s why well-written plays which spread the uplifting and positive Christian message are so effective.An added bonus is that rehearsing their lines and “getting into their roles” helps the actors understand the Biblical messages better too (young and old).

So get as many people as possible involved! I guarantee they will get so much out of the experience.
Young children learn best in a fun and engaging environment.

For the audience, nothing captures their attention more than a creative storyline. That’s why live performances have so much influence in popular culture. 

Why Not Benefit From The Story-Telling Power Of Christian Plays And Skits By…

Staging A Short Play Instead Of Having A Traditional Gospel Reading
Using A Short Play To Teach The Bible’s Messages
Putting A Play On At Schools To Spread The Gospel To Young People
Staging A Play At Your Church Service Or Gathering
Staging A Play As Part Of Religious Education In Schools

Staging A Play During Special Occasions Such As Christmas or Easter?
“Great selection of scripts…Easy and clear to follow…Humorous in a fantastic Christian way…Very well written…Incredible value!— Pastor Maureen Jacobs
Sydney, Australia

The possibilities are endless.
“A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”
(Psalm 25:11)

Maybe you already know about the immense benefits of staging a play for your church, Christian group or school but don’t know how to get started.

Very often, the most difficult part of staging a play does not lie in the logistics or rehearsals… but in finding the proper script.
  Putting On A Christian Play Or Drama Is So Much Easier With A Professionally Written Script!
I know how difficult it can be for someone to piece together a script that has just the right elements.

The writing process is time-consuming, and not everyone can come up with great scripts with an ear for dialogue at a moment’s notice.

That’s why I’m inspired to share my collection of 10 tried-and-tested Christian plays with you.

Each play is professionally written by me (with staging directions, Bible references and notes).

They have also been audience tested and fine-tuned… so you can be assured that they’ll be well-received wherever you choose to perform them.
