In this pre-EASTER skit, on a Good Friday, a group of young people from a public school are heading on a field trip to the museum. They board a subway train and find a few younger kids in their car. Those kids are heading to a play about the crucifixion of Jesus and a discussion begins about what Good Friday is all about and the real meaning of Easter. Two of the kids begin a strong witness as they share the gospel, and one boy in particular shows a great interest.

Lara wants to end her life. Dana shows up and realizes that something is wrong, and she prays for her friend. She leaves her Bible and as Lara sits looking at the Bible, a stranger appears who begins to talk with her about Jesus. Soon more visitors come, all figures from the Bible: Stephen, Peter, Mary Magdalene, Paul, Judas, Matthew, etc. Each one telling their own story and all sharing about the life of Jesus. (these are in individual monologues) The first visitor reveals that He is really Jesus, and leaves a choice for Lara. Very evangelical, and strong salvation message. Lots of scripture. The parts of Lara and Dana can also be played by two men, as in the excerpt here. This play also works very well with an all male cast, just removing two of the female monologues.
12 actors (8 male, 4 female) No set changes, can be done very simply, with few props. About 50-55 minutes. Songs can be added to make a nice musical. Learn More
This play tries to tackle the big question of why God allows suffering. In the opening scene, Sarah dies. She is surrounded by her loving, Christian family. (her parents and sister) As the story continues, we meet some of Sarah's friends who talk about her death. Some of them are believers and some are not. One compares her death to her father's sudden loss of employment. This man, Tom, is very bitter and angry about his situation, and even though his wife is a believer, he will not allow her to talk about God or try to say that this is part of God's plan or His working in Tom's life. Besides the young adults talking, we also have the parents from the two families meeting together. In the final scene, Sarah's father, Brian shares with Tom and Tom's heart begins to soften. Throughout the play there is a lot of witnessing and sharing of the gospel.
Cast of 12 actors (5 male, 7 female). The young adults are probably in their 20's or at least late teens. About an hour long. Learn More
Dave has gotten really messed up by dealing drugs. His wife, Sharon is now a Christian and has been sharing with him, so he is feeling convicted and guilty. He decides to tell his dealer bosses that he wants out. In the opening and dramatic scene... violence erupts as a gun comes out and Dave ends up dead. The rest of the play is about Dave's friends who are shocked and spend time discussing the events and Sharon and this also leads to opportunities to share the gospel. In another dramatic scene, Sharon has a gun and wants to end her life, when two friends come to her rescue. Bill, one of the dealers in the opening scene, comes to Christ at the end of the play. This can work at Easter as there is a scene where the Last Supper is discussed.
This is a very similar story (even sequel, if you will) to several other plays listed here: The Bench, The Bench in the Alley, It Happened in the Alley, and Conversations With Friends. You will find many of the same characters and even some similar situations... yet it is not the same script and the stories are different.

This sketch is perfect for your Easter production or during a celebration of the Lord's Supper. This is taken from scripture and basically just arranged dramatically. It is not the whole story of what happened at the Last Supper, but more of some of Christ's teaching that night taken from the gospel of John. This script is free and it is here in it's entirety. You can just copy and paste it to your own document, or add it to cart if you are also purchasing another script.

This monologue is good for a communion service or for Memorial Day. Andrew, the disciple, tells about the night of the last supper. Some of the information is about how he felt during certain events, about Peter, his brother, and how he acted, but mostly he brings out the meaning of the bread and the cup and what that ultimately meant. He stresses how important it is that we never forget what Christ did for us when he shed his blood for our sins.

On Easter Sunday morning, an angel appears and begins to describe their experience being a messenger of God and being present at very important moments in the life of Christ. They describe what it was like at the birth, temptation, death and resurrection of Christ. This is somewhat based on information that we may have learned about angels, and is also taking much freedom and imagination into play to create an emotional monologue.
One actor. About 5 minutes. Addional and optional dialogue added to make it longer. Learn More
This short EASTER skit takes place in the upper room where the disciples are trying to convince Thomas that Jesus is alive.

This closely follows the Biblical account of the Crucifixion of Christ. Jesus speaks seven times and each line is actual scripture. The other dialogue is by crowd members, pharisees and scribes, roman soldiers and the thieves. There are at least 3 women in the scene including Mary, the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene and Salome. Difficult to stage as you might imagine. Should take between 7-10 mins, depending on how long you want to drag it out. This script is also included in the play, "Scenes from the Life of Christ".

An original "modern day" drama in 2 acts that takes place around the time of Easter. Dylan is a young art teacher at the high school and also leads a weekly bible study. Every year on Good Friday, he carries a big cross around and witnesses to people as to what Easter is all about, and on Easter morning, he does a sunrise service on the beach. As he prepares for the big event, some of the students at the school get excited about helping out. One such girl is Alissa. Alissa has a little brother who gets picked on by a bully, and their parents decide to pull both children out of school and "home school" them. This is a big decision as the mom, Greta, has to quit her job to do it. The boy, Christopher, is very excited, but Alissa does not like the idea at all..and rebels. Meanwhile, Christopher runs into the bully again, (Henry) and has the boldness to tell him about Jesus and how He loves him. Henry's brother, Ian is concerned about Henry and their very depressed father, Sebastian. Ian also goes to Dylan's bible study, and he tries to get his dad to agree to attending the sunrise service. There are other stories mixed in and they all connect somehow and the entire cast ends up on stage at the last scene taking place on the beach. Dylan reads the Easter story and shares and many of them make decisions to follow the Lord more closely or for the first time. There are lessons on forgiveness and loving those who have hurt you, following the leading of God no matter how hard it seems, accepting that God allows sorrow in our lives, and the simple message of salvation.

This play is very similar to "The Bench", "The Bench in the Alley" and "It Happened in the Alley" as it contains some of the same characters. So, it is like a sequel. All of these plays were taken out of a large passion play, as the modern day sections. (Changing a bit from year to year) As those other stories contain some very dramatic and emotional scenes dealing with drugs, violence, death, suicide and cutting... this one is more of a witness. The young people (probably college students) have gathered to talk about the death of a friend, but it turns into a discussion about Christ with an atheist. Sarah is the girl seeking answers in this story and she talks with her mother about her father's death two years ago. The mother is moving on and has begun to date again and Sarah is not ready for that to happen yet. She is still mad at God for taking her dad away from her. In the final scene, she gets to talk with Alex, who helps her to realize that Jesus truly loves her and cares about her sadness. Her heartfelt prayer at the end is overheard by her mother and they reconcile. This also contains a scene discussing the Last Supper. New lower price.
7 actors (3 men and 4 women) Some genders could be changed. About 30-35 mins. Simple set, no changes. Learn More
This play, with a great price, is sort of a sequel to "The Bench" and "The Bench In The Alley" as it follows a similar storyline and has some of the same characters and similar incidents, but different dialog. In the dramatic opening scene, a drug deal goes bad and Dave dies in the alley. His wife Sharon finds herself suicidal in another scene, but is helped by two Christian friends. Meanwhile, Lisa has been struggling with many things, one of them being her father's alcoholism and she becomes a cutter. (Her father comes home drunk and has a fight with his wife.) Becky and Sue confront Lisa and learn of her problem. By the end, Lisa and her father both have come to know the Lord as their savior. There is a scene where the Last Supper is discussed, so this could work at Easter.

This is a short presentation of John the Baptist preaching before Jesus comes for baptism. It is taken from all four gospels and has very few added words than what is actually in the Bible.

In this EASTER skit, Mikey is having his annual Easter Egg hunt at his place and all his friends have come. But Mikey is focused too much on the Easter Bunny and gets into a discussion with one of the other kids on what Easter is really about. Then Mikey falls asleep and in his dream, the Easter Bunny comes and tells him that he is now saved and has changed his name to Resurrection Rabbit. He explains the true meaning of Easter, and tells the kids that instead of passing out candy, he now just tells people about Jesus. The salvation message is very clear.
