New Christmas Script! "Stormy Night, Holy Night"

Here's a new 18-minute "No Lines To Learn" Christmas script with soundtrack... and it only takes TWO people to perform! A father and teen daughter take refuge in their basement from a coming storm. The storm building in the young girl's mind and heart, stemming from the loss of her mother over a year ago, coincides with the tornado that hits the town. Featuring another powerful song written and sung by songwriter Archie Jordan, this easy-to-do mini-play is full of drama and has a touching end that will move you. Read the script here, and order the soundtrack that has all the narration, professional sound effects and music! (This short play is part of the longer play "Assignment: Comfort And Joy!" It has been isolated to be performed by itself here.)

Here's the link to read it yourself!

And here's a preview of the soundtrack that it is performed to.

Script: "Prohibiting Prayer: The Daniel Decree"

A new play, in the "No Lines to Learn" format, has been released! Entitled "Prohibiting Prayer: The Daniel Decree," the script is a unique retelling of the story of Daniel and the Lion's Den from a new perspective. All the narration, powerful background music and sound effects are supplied on the soundtrack.

The Chief Scribe to King Darius, responsible for chronicling events in the kingdom, tells the story that he and his son witness and became participants in. Seeing Daniel's dedication and deliverance, both he and his son learn that they can trust Daniel's God like he does. 

Length of play with soundtrack: approximately 35 minutes. Great any time, but PERFECT for Father's Day, since the king's scribe is training his son, and together they learn to have faith in Daniel's God after being witness to the miracle of his protection while in the den of lions.

"Jerusalem's Most Wanted" video

Over the years I have seen quite a few videos posted of various churches performing my humorous (yet scripturally accurate) play script "Jerusalem's Most Wanted." Some have done a great job, others... well, they held the scripts in hand and talked their way through it. But when I find an exemplary job of putting this play on (or any of my scripts) I like to feature the video, both for the viewer to enjoy watching and to serve as an inspiration to do it yourself.

The video is only attributed to the "UACC Youth Banquet 2012" so far but as soon as I hear from the person that posted it, I will give more details.

Watch Part One: https://youtu.be/1SWUAJeaWrA


 Watch Part Two: https://youtu.be/jXxN5avt3tQ 

 Watch the conclusion, Part Three: https://youtu.be/zpKfdXWjZEA 

Here is the script: http://www.christianskitscripts.com/mostwanted.htm It comes with a soundtrack that supplies the background score music and sound effects to make it effective and exciting! It was used in the production of the play in this video.

I recently found a video from a church that adapted it to be a musical, with their own songs added in the scenes. You can watch that here: https://youtu.be/XhbfIRKUx8Y

Amusing Video of "Season's Beatings" Script

Short, Easy-To-Do (But AMAZING) Christmas Skits!

If you are  looking desperately for a short Christmas skit you can do that will amaze -and touch- your audience, you have been blessed to be led to this page! We have some of the most popular short Christmas skits to be found anywhere on the web, all for free. There are soundtrack CDs available to buy that will make your performance more effective, and easier. Some are of our unique "Play/Act" format, with no lines to learn. Others supply the music and sound effects called for in the scripts. Read some user testimonials here!

Here they are, click on the titles to read:

 (Soundtrack key: NO LINES TO LEARN, CD supplies the narration, background music and sound effects.)

If you are looking for something very short to do for your Christmas service, this is the mini-play for you! Performed to a narrated soundtrack, so there are no lines to learn, this 15 minute script takes only 4 people to perform... two major and two minor parts.

 It is adapted from the longer play "Assignment: Comfort and Joy." Isolated and slightly re-written with a different ending to stand alone, the script is for those needing something short, easy-to-do and moving!

A hermit that lives in a junkyard is feeling down on Christmas Eve, praying for more to eat than what he has, a can of vienna sausages and crackers. An unexpected visitor who is worse off than he is helps him to learn that giving what you can is the path to blessing. Read the script here, and order the soundtrack that has all the narration, sound effects and music!

The Narrated Nativity

(Soundtrack key: NO LINES TO LEARN, CD supplies the narration, background music and sound effects.)

Want to do a short traditional Christmas Nativity play, but with no lines to learn? Use this script and soundtrack CD, which supplies all of the narration, background music and sound effects on the CD!  The four scenes are: The Annunciation, The Angel Tells The Shepherds, The Shepherds Find The Baby, and Simeon and Anna In The Temple. Each one runs about 5 minutes, for a total of 20 minutes. Click the above title to read those scenes and order the CD soundtrack. You could separate each scene with live Christmas singing, if you wish!

"The Ultimate Gift"

(Soundtrack key: NO LINES TO LEARN, CD supplies the narration, background music and sound effects.)

The three-part comedic skit entitled "The Ultimate Gift" is an 18 minute presentation, you can do the skits and present live singing in between each part if you wish.  Synopsis: At a meeting of a technology company days before Christmas, three inventors present their inventions for the next year's "Ultimate Gift." In each of the three five-to-six-minute skit sequences, a way-out device is demonstrated that causes havoc on the group, with truly hysterical results! A cleaning lady that is present shares with them what the ultimate gift really is, and how to receive it. Full of humor, funny action and deep meaning, but with no lines to learn, these short series of skits will excite your actors and tickle the viewers. Click the above title to read the script and order the CD soundtrack for "The Ultimate Gift"!


"The Great Church Robbery"

(Soundtrack key: BOTH OPTIONS ARE ON THE CD: NO LINES TO LEARN --OR-- You do your own lines and the CD supplies the background music and sound effects.)

Inspired by "How The Grinch Stole Christmas, this is a short yet powerful presentation guaranteed to bring a smile to their lips and a tear to their eyes! It can be done as a dramatic reading or acted out to the recording or live narration. Done by many for Christmas, it can be done at any time for a short presentation if you want something simple but very moving. Another great last-minute skit since it can be acted out to the narrated recording! 6 minutes.

Our all-time most popular short Christmas script!
"Live From Downtown"

(Soundtrack key: You do your own lines and the CD supplies the background music and sound effects.)

Looking around for the perfect short comedy Christmas skit for that holiday banquet or service? Well, look no more! Here is the script for one that's 10 to 12 minutes, that can use 13 or more people (8 actors and a group of carolers). This script is just right if you're looking for a short but funny (and meaningful) Christmas presentation. It has been our most popular short Christmas skit so far. Check it out!

This one can be done simply by just two people!
"Crisis on the Holiday Helpline"

(Soundtrack key: You do your own lines and the CD supplies the background music and sound effects.)

The Holiday Helpline is set up to help people facing despair, despondency and depression during the holidays. But without the Lord, what hope can the counselor give? What if he's worse off than the callers? Funny and effective, with a powerful salvation scene. A short, VERY easy to do skit that needs only one person onstage (with the script on a laptop), and one offstage on a microphone! This may be the ultimate last-minute Christmas skit! 8-10 minutes.

This one is a favorite of those that have done it!

"How Nick Became a Saint!"

(Soundtrack key: You do your own lines and the CD supplies the background music and sound effects.)

Under observation by the unseen angel assigned to him, department store clerk Nick is drafted to be a fill-in Santa. Enduring demands and abuse by the kids in line, his holiday cheer melts like a snowflake on a griddle. But then he gets the best present he ever received, from the most unlikely source; a little girl on his knee who shows him where the true joy of Christmas comes from. Kids and adults can be part of this one! 8-10 minutes.

"The Cowboy Carl and Pal the Wonderdog Radio Christmas Special"

(Soundtrack key: You do your own lines and the CD supplies the background music and sound effects.)

Read the hilarious two-person script, "Cowboy Carl and Pal the Wonder Dog's Radio Christmas Special," by clicking the title. This one is different, in that you get to produce a "live radio show" right in front of the audience! It also combines the fun of a puppet skit by making one of the characters a puppeteer. You've never seen -or performed- a skit as unique as this one! About 15 minutes long.

Looking for longer full-length plays, but still with no lines to learn? Keep reading!

Of course, if you are wanting to do a full play, we have those as well;  ranging from 40 minutes all the way to 80 minutes, in our unique "no lines to learn" narrated format.  They have been extremely popular with visitors, and literally many thousands of churches have done them with fantastic success.
