Finding the Right Skit

The best way to find a skit to fit your event is to read the full synopsis of each skit on the “Downloadable Skits” page.  However, some suggestions are made below (Skits for Special Events) that may be helpful, and below that I have put a Summary of Skits which give you skit information in one place.

SKITS FOR SPECIAL EVENTS

Women’s Tea – We have a one-act skit that would be perfect for a women’s tea or special dinner.  The characters in “The Everlasting Teapot Show” are teacups!  Seven teacups vie for the title “Miss Overflowing Teacup,” the winner being filled with “Living Water.”  The one-act skit “Singing in the Rain” is also perfect for a women’s event, encouraging joy in the midst of trials.

Christmas – We have a one-act skit with a Christmas theme called “Tidings of Stress and Fear;” without Jesus, our world is full of stress and fear.  The skit “In Need of Light” compares walking in darkness to walking in light, which could work with a Christmas theme about Jesus coming as the True Light into a world of darkness (John 1).  The skit series “Good and Perfect Gifts” has four individual skits about gifts that God has given us (salvation, forgiveness, suffering and trials, spiritual gifts) which would also be appropriate at Christmas.

Women’s event that is ocean related – So many themed lend themselves to decorating with an ocean or beach theme.  Our one-act skit “Fining Your Way” is a short dialogue between a lighthouse and an ocean buoy concerning a sailor that lost his way.

Women’s event that is shoe related – Because the Bible refers to our life in Christ as a Christian “walk,” it can be fun to decorate with a shoe theme. Our skit series “If the Shoe Fits” introduced shoes for walking and running and standing firm.

Women’s event theme related to our journey in life: “Living Water Rafting Co.”, “Life in the Spirit Marathon”, and “Mail Order Bride” all depict our journey in life.

“Anytime” skits:  Several of these skits would be appropriate for any event, in our opinion.  “Heart Transplant” and “Good Intentions” (from the “Confronting Your Giants” series) are two of these.
