An idea for a drama workshop...
...do it with small posable characters and have the kids build a small set on a tabletop. Years ago we did this using those small posable superhero and star wars characters. One group created the set, while another group of "readers" rehearsed with the kids who were moving the characters.
We had Chewbacca as Peter on the boat with Jesus the Incredible Hulk.
A mist bottle of water provided the storm. A plastic boat was attached to a dowel and rocked by one happy child.
We put the posable figures on the ends of pencils and the kids sat under the table holding the characters up towards the camera and scenery. They were positioned in such as way as they could see the monitor to see how they're characters were doing.
Very effective at teaching the story, and very fun.
During discussion time, the kids with characters had to answer as their character.
