General Information

These plays can be performed in any home or small church setting, but can work as well in any size location.  They can be greatly expanded and adapted to include more performers with more speaking, singing, instruments, and dances.  These all can be tailored to the children and /or adults involved,  pertinent to their ages, abilities, personalities, etc.. Having been involved in church drama, I already had some costumes on hand. Being a saver of fabrics and ‘stuff’, and able to sew somewhat, I added to the costumes as needed, making use of fabric inherited from my mom. I also used old curtains, old bed sheets and pillowcases and whatever was suitable and available.
