Reply to "Using Overhead Transparencies in Drama"

Skit Books that include Overhead Transparency Background Scenes

Group Publishing put out a couple of books called "Big Action Bible Skits" for both Old and New Testaments. They have neat transparancies and scripts with directions for action and when to change the pictures. There are also discussion questions at the end of the script. I have used these often in our drama workshop. In fact, I kept one wall "beige" so the transparancies work better. It's a "must-have" resource!
