Why Christian Drama is important to Churches.

Since more than a decade or so the drama teams portraying the Christian dramas have been associated closely with the churches of all denominations. These dramas are most popular during the holiday seasons and are a great way for families to educate their children about the Christian values and faith. The Christian dramas include not only extended stories and plays, but songs as well, which offer entertainment and education to their audiences. These dramas are important to the churches and there are special church teams which work on them not only on the Sundays but also on weeknights.

These dramas are a distinct way of disseminating the teachings of Jesus to the congregations in a unique and creative manner. Particularly special Christian plays are created for the occasions of Easter and Christmas which mark the most vital events on the Christian calendar. The church gives importance to these drama teams responsible for creating Christian dramas as they assist the churches in helping the people connect with God by motivating them through the stories other than preaching about the same.

Furthermore, the Christian dramas work wonders when it comes to connecting with the children who can get the answers to many of their questions through the creative storylines and be firm in their faith from a very young age. Also, the children will be able to learn the gospels through these dramas in a more effective and quicker manner. In fact most of the church teams responsible for Christian dramas also have special teams for children as well, for performing simple songs and hymns.

The main aim of the Christian plays is to motivate and stir an interest in the individuals who have short attention spans or are demotivated. This is the reason the churches are taking help of this mode of action to engage and entertain their audiences for which they even act out bible stories from time to time during the year. Not only do the Christian plays help in highlighting a moral issue and create awareness about the same but also, teach the target audience how to resolve the same with character.

These plays are a distinct way for the Christians to come closer to God. The aim of the Christian dramas coincides with the aim of the churches of spreading the words of God to His creation. The performers and the story tellers who act in these dramas are revered by the church as they assist in serving God and bringing others closer to Him.

Qualities of a Good Christian Play

A good Christian play, apart from the obvious theme and message, needs to have certain other qualities to entice the audience and arouse interest in them. Play scripts shouldn’t be monotonous or tinged in monochrome. Audience appreciates different shades that remind them of their everyday life and its struggles and dilemmas. There are a few characteristic traits that connect all good Christian plays, written for churches, theatres and school groups.

Soaked in family values

Christian drama scripts usually have family values at their core. Whether it is the relation between husband and wife or parents and children, there are strong family ties at the heart of the play. There are drama scripts that can be used to perform even at community theatres where the audience appreciates sound family values and emotions.

Tailor-made for specific audiences

It is not always possible for play scripts to satisfy everyone. One size doesn’t fit all. Good Christian plays on the contrary are tailor-made towards a target audience and are written to carry the message to its specific audiences. That is why certain drama scripts cater to gender restrictions, age restrictions and restrictions of cast, subjects touched or even length. Christian plays are not necessarily drenched only in family or emotional drama. There is a touch of mystery, drama and comedy as well to keep the audiences engrossed through the 60 – 90 minutes that it usually lasts for.

Everyday choices across true Christian principles

This is the defining aspect of Christian plays. The playwrights have a thorough understanding of Christian principles and try to elucidate it through the challenges faced by the characters and the choices they take. The script is highlighted by the tough situations and problems faced by the characters and how they wade through it without really breaching their Christian principles. If anything, the play scripts focus on how the best of people struggle in life and how they can still come out with flying colors without really sacrificing their principles. A very vital attribute of the script also lies in how dear ones offer strong support and courage to the individuals to help them see through the tough situation.

For specific events

Given that the drama scripts are staged generally during holidays, a lot of scripts also cover Easter and Christmas or use Christian heroes and the story of their faith. A very recurrent theme in Christian plays is history. Apart from historical stories like that of Abigail Adams, there are Biblical plays too, like the story of Esther. These are perfect for dinner theaters organized during Christmas festivals or holidays. Short stories, scripts on shepherds and the three Magi, fantasy stories woven with Christian characters, etc. are also commonly on offer.

Interchangeable roles

Quite a few Christian plays use characters which are interchangeable. In other words, to tailor the play to the audiences, the characters can be either male or female. Some plays also try to dig out insights from classic Christmas stories and elucidate it to the audiences, targeting children and teens.

What Makes a Good Christian Play

Good stories make great plays, and all around the world, Christian plays are much appreciated for their meaning, lessons, and inspirational effect whenever people watch them. Every once in a while individuals appreciate a touching presentation which can reach to their inner self and affect them positively. We believe how important it is for Christian play scripts to be carefully crafted while maintaining the audience’s attention.

It is a given that a Christian play must have a lesson, should be inspiring, and as much possible, be memorable. However, these aren’t the only qualities that good Christian plays should have. Here are some of the factors which contribute to great Christian play scripts

  • Must capture and retain the attention of the audience – To successfully get the message across, Christian plays must be able to pique the interest of the audience. This can be achieved by making use of interesting characters, a conflict which is strong but can be resolved, and also by injecting some humor. Serious Christian plays are also effective, but having some comic relief once in a while helps break the “heavy” feeling. It also makes the play more memorable because humor won’t just capture the attention of the audience but make them feel good after the play as well.
  • Should make the audience feel part of the experience – To make them feel the lessons and value of the play, there should be lines which everyone can relate to. People appreciate it when they can relate to a character’s experiences, and would feel more hopeful about their personal lives and have a more positive outlook when they can feel great about how the character was able to triumph in the play.
  • Can involve the audience in some acts – Some Christian plays which go the extra mile have scenes where some of the audiences—mostly kids, are involved in certain scenes. This adds to the experience of the audience that they are part of the play.
  • Makes good use of symbolism – Good Christian plays need not always have many characters to make everyone feel part of the play. A single character may symbolize many groups of people when given the right words to say. Even the situations where the characters find themselves in may help in making use of symbolism to make the play feel more “real” or “genuine” by the audience.
  • Imparts not just one lesson – There are many Christian values and a Christian play is a great way to impart several of these valuable nuggets of goodness and wisdom. While having a central plot is a great way to go about presenting a play, being able to share several values shown in various situations makes a Christian play script even better. 

Great plays which are able to touch the hearts, inspire, and motivate people to become better individuals take time, effort, and dedication to be made possible. We are ready to assist you with your needs for enlightening play presentations which will be of great value to anyone who will have the chance to watch it.
