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. Get the script here, and the soundtrack that has all the narration, sound effects and music!

SHORTER SKITS:

"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. Go to the script page to see them!

15-Minute "No Lines To Learn" Mini Christmas Play!

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's called "The Junk Man's Christmas Dinner" and 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. Get the script here, and soundtrack that has all the narration, sound effects and music!

This would fit in wonderfully with other elements of a special Christmas service;  let this be the "adult" contribution, with your kids doing another of our short narrated skits like "The Great Church Robbery" or another script you have ready for them. Have some Christmas songs or music before, in the middle between the adult and children's plays and after, and you have a well-rounded presentation that all ages will enjoy!
