4) Lights, Camera, Action Bible Skits
The students really liked performing it [Lights, Camera, Action] for our
Junior School. I thought it was great to have a skit that was solidly
grounded in Biblical facts, was entertaining for kids and gave lots of ideas
for props and costumes - all the things a Christian teacher wants in a Bible
So thank you for this resource,

The kids LOVED it! One girl brought two friends for the entire year!! One of her guests was totally unchurched and knew nothing about Jesus or the Bible. She had never heard of words like disciples, parable, etc. She begged her mom, whom I’ve never met, to let her skip volleyball so she could be there for the Jesus rising from the dead drama!
The kids whipped up crazy and sometimes a little outrageous ideas for the stories. We had a fan whipping a plastic blue table cloth across the floor for the calming of the storm. We had a spray bottle for the baptism of Jesus. Our music guy offered to cut down an old stage piece to a shorter height (only 5 inches) so we had an actual stage. One of our properties guys went to Lowe's and spent $12 on an 8’x4’ piece of dry erase board and mounted it on the wall so the kids could draw scenery behind the stage.
We were the only class (grades 4-6) that maintained perfect attendance all year. Praise the Lord!
I was given one of those VHS camcorders (the size of a small suitcase--ha) so we recorded all of the skits on a VHS tape and then at the end of each drama we turned off the lights and popped the tape in the VHS players on our TV. I think the kids liked this part the best.
I went to Goodwill and stocked up on bathrobes, white lace curtains (used for everything from angel costumes to heavenly clouds), and scarves.
I loaned out the tape to the kids during the week so they could play it at home. They wanted to show it to the congregation and/or adult Bible class. I opted to play it during our Easter breakfast so people could watch it at their leisure.
Thanks for this great resource! It has reached 6-10 kids during the past two years and introduced one little girl to Jesus for the first time in her life.
