Drama - "Stage Right"

A Man, A Woman and the Test of Doom
By Dave Marsh - Drama - Sep 18, 2023
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 - Aug 31, 2023
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 - Aug 08, 2023
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 Tent
By Dave Marsh - Drama - June 14, 2023
. Director's Notes: This drama focuses on how many times we just want to be in our own comfort zone and not face that fact that God has expectations of us as Christians. Life is full of land mines and God knows exactly where they are. He wants us to listen to Him and trust Him so that his instructions will guide us past them. The drama is, admittedly, light. I just wanted to write something funny and to introduce the subject matter before the pastor got up to speak. Cast: Tom: A man who doesn't trust God enough Beth: Tom's wife Props: A small tent ...

The Fishing Hole
By Dave Marsh - Drama - May 09, 2023
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 - April 27, 2023
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...

Next 5
By Dave Marsh - Drama - March 16, 2023
. Director's Notes: Our pastor did a message from 1 Corinthians 13 that said we can have all the faith and gifts in the world but if we don't have love for one another, then we are nothing. It was aimed at how we love each other in the church but the drama works well for marriages in general also. The drama touches on how we can show love for each other by the way we treat each other. Cast: Dave: The husband Beth: The wife Props: A remote 2 chairs (or couch) Tiny wadded up pieces of paper A small ball Graphics from the shows mentioned (to show as s...

The 7th Day
By Dave Marsh - Drama - March 06, 2023
A drama about Priorities. 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... Cast: Dave: A workaholic Dad Jimmy: Dave's Son Props: A phone Some papers A chair ...

The Remote
By Dave Marsh - Drama - June 22, 2022
A drama about obeying your parents. Director's Notes: I love old Twilight Zone episodes. So, I wrote this drama as if the mom has a magical remote. It's pretty wacky but gets it's point across. BTW, I borrowed the ending from the Simpsons... Cast: Beth: Mom Diane: Beth's daughter Rod Serling: Someone talking into a mike. Props: A remote Boombox (prop only) 3 songs (1 heavy metal, 1 Johnny Mathis or the like, and 1 Beatles) Twilight Zone theme (you can find this on the net) Couch (or 2 chairs put together) Setting: Inside ...
