Drama - "Stage Right"

By Dave Marsh - Drama - Oct 18, 2021
A drama about God pursuing the lost. Director's Notes: God pursues lost people with a vengence. He cares about us so much that He will passionately seek us out to bring us home. This drama shows the difference between how God might pursue us (Donna) and how we humans normally view the lost (Jim). Cast: Donna: A good shepherd Jimmy: A not-so-good shepherd Props: 2 staffs (staves?) A laptop computer a bag (to hold the laptop) A picture of a field (projected behind them if possible) Ambient field noizes (if possible) Setti...

Dear Mr. Johnson
By Dave Marsh - Drama - Oct 06, 2021
A drama about putting off the old self and putting on the new. Director's Notes: Petra once did a song called "Killing My Old Man." The song was based on the idea from Ephesians 4 which calls believers to "put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts..." Paul then tells us to "put on the new man which was created according to God, in righteousness and true holiness." Sometimes I write dramas that hit close to home. This is one such drama. Why is it that, as a Christian, I continue to allow the old ...

I Got Me No Time
By Dave Marsh - Drama - Sep 22, 2021
. Director's Notes: Let's face it - we're too busy. Steven Curtis Chapman sings a song about the "busyman." The Bible says that a man dies and leaves behind all his busy activities. Sometimes when I write a drama, God uses it first and foremost in my own life. There are a few laughs in this one but that's about it. Nothing really funny about this subject. I ended it as I'm apt to do - the Everyman can't make up his mind as the lights fade... This drama can also be used in a stewardship series as part 3. Cast: Dave: A workaholic Dad Lucas: Dave's Son <p...

The Box
By Dave Marsh - Drama - Sep 01, 2021
A drama about using your talents for God. Director's Notes: When I lived in Chicago and went to my favorite pizzeria, I always took note of a photo on the wall of the 1906 Chicago Cubs. Okay, I just didn't take note of it, I was fascinated by it. The photo shows that the stands were packed with tens of thousands of people and the ball players stood on the field in front of them. I wondered how many of those people lived their lives for Christ and how many of them wanted to make an eternal impact on this world. When Ray asked me to write something about using o...

A Man, A Woman and the Test of Doom
By Dave Marsh - Drama - July 26, 2021
A drama about marriage. Director's Notes: Pastor Ray asked me to write a light-hearted drama for this weekend centering around marriage. As I thought about what I would write, I asked myself how the world tells you if you have a healthy marriage or not. I quickly scanned the Internet until I found what I was looking for - a marriage cyber-test. I pulled some questions from it and added my own for the drama. Amazing... if we would only go to God's word, we could find out exactly what He has to say about a healthy marriage... Note: When Jason speaks to the a...

The Question
By Dave Marsh - Drama - July 13, 2021
A drama about Evangelism. Director's Notes: Ray did a series on how to invite people to an event we have called Friend Day. Basically, it comes down to the fact that most of us are nervous/scared/worried about inviting people to church for fear of rejection. This drama uses a tape with voice over on it. Basically, everything in parenthesis is what Mark is thinking...) Cast: Mark: A Christian John: Mark's non-Christian friend Props: Couch Setting: Livingroom (LIGHTS UP CENTER STAGE where John and Mark are sitting on the couch watching a ...

Yeah, Merry Christmas
By Dave Marsh - Drama - June 17, 2021
A drama about the meaning of Christmas. Director's Notes: I tend to shy away from writing stuff that comes across to schmaltzy. So, when I wrote this Christmas drama I drew inspiration from the wonderful film "A Christmas Story." I thought it was funny how the kids just went nuts opening presents. Unfortunately, this is all to true in real life as we forget the real meaning of this holy day... Cast: Wendy: Mom John: Dad Justin: Kid Malory: Kid Props: A couch or two chairs put together A bunch of wrapped presents for the kids (doesn't matter wh...

The Fishing Hole
By Dave Marsh - Drama - March 18, 2021
A drama about Priorities- Father's Day. Director's Notes: This was an idea I had for quite some time. I had heard the phrase "I wasted the day with my son today" and I decided to turn the negative meaning into a positive one so I changed it to "I wasted the day away with my son today." The content of the conversation between father and son can be anything you want... It's by far my favorite drama. Cast: John: A dad Jimmy: A son Martha: A mom Props: Fishing poles Folding chairs Setting: The family's backyard (LIGHTS UP CENTER S...

The List
By Dave Marsh - Drama - March 08, 2021
A drama about Prayer.. Director's Notes: When I first became a Christian, I would pray about everything. I mean, every single thing - no matter how small. We forget that the Father wants to hear every little request. He delights in it. Somehow, just like the mom and dad in this sketch, we grow older and forget this. This drama focuses on this and reminds us to have child-like faith... Cast: John: A dad Wendy: A mom Katie: Kid Props: A couch Christmas decorations Boombox Andy Williams tape (Most Wonderful Time of the Year) Pap...

A drama about anger, sin, and speech. Director's Notes: Ray has been speaking from the book of Ephesians and in Ephesians 4, Paul talks about how we need to stop lying to each other and speak the truth. He then goes on to talk about anger and stealing and finally bad language. I decided that this was too much to tackle in one drama so I settled on bad language. Now, tell me that as you read this, you don't see yourself behind the wheel. C'mon, I dare ya! BTW, I recorded this again pretending that I'm merely thinking these things (except for the parts wh...
