In some Rotation Model Sunday Schools, Drama, "Newsroom," Puppets, and Storytelling are all variations of the same workshop. In other Rotation churches, you may find a Drama workshop in one classroom space, and a Story or Puppet workshop in another space. Your choice!

Three keys to a good drama workshop:

1)  Lots of props, costumes and backgrounds at the ready.

2) Videotape it!  It focuses the kids.

3) A simple, kid-friendly script and staging concept. Avoid over-written scripts, those that merely retell the story, and those that don't include insights and reflection. You're not putting on a pageant.

TIP:  Use an overhead or LCD projector to put the 'scripts' on the wall in front of the actors instead of in their hands. This free's them up.

Yes, in just about EVERY church you can see kids in costumes for special occasions. They love that. In Rotation Churches, this happens almost every week in the Drama Workshop !


The traditional model would never take the time to make a 'cool' Philippi jail for teaching Acts 16.  But in the Rotation Model, because we set it up and use it with ALL our classes, such awesome ways to teach are quite do-able.  

We did not videotape the Philippi jail workshop, and the kids were "jailed" with four actors who carried the weight of the drama using a script they had developed.


There's an entire thread in our JONAH LESSONS about how to make a walk-thru blow-up whale for your Jonah Drama.


Creative use of shower curtains to create stage curtain.


Even the "entrance" to the Drama Workshop here looks cool.


Colorful fabric everywhere!   Ceiling, wall-backdrop, curtain, table.


In the Rotation Model Drama Workshop, "fisherman's nets" are good to have around.
