  • Drama Team Handbook
    by Alison Siewert
    ISBN: 0830823646
    Drama has power.It can awaken us. Make us curious. Reveal our inner desires and passions. Remind us of our foolishness. Drama has power in worship. It can snap us out of our Sunday morning (or Saturday night) trance. It can draw us into the story of Scripture. It can help us see our sin. It can motivate us to change. But drama can also be dull, predictable, guilt-inducing and just plain cheesy. How do we avoid the pitfalls and discover the power? Alison Siewert and her team of writers have some ideas about that. They offer in this handbook articles on every aspect of drama ministry--from why it's biblical to how to direct a performance, from warm-ups for actors to how to write your own sketches. You'll learn how to do drama that is simple and meaningful--without experienced actors. You'll learn how to craft drama with authenticity and excellence. Also included are cutting-edge sketches for the postmodern crowd that you can reproduce for your drama team and use in your ministry. Drama has power to change lives. Drama Team Handbook will show you how.
  • Drama Team Sketchbook: 12 Scripts That Bring the Gospels to Life
    by Alison Siewert
    ISBN: 0830832084
    We need drama.Drama helps us see ourselves. It makes space for the parts of life that are ambiguous, thrilling, painful, uncertain. It says things to us that we desperately need to hear, and it says them intuitively, by pointing rather than by explaining.Drama helps us see God. The woman at the well comes to know God because she admits who she really is--and in the very next turn, she hears Jesus speak who he really is.Drama speaks prophetically. Theater can ask hard questions by pointing to them on the stage, and we can say things in the context of theatrical dialogue that we would struggle to speak in any other context.Drama shows in a world that tells. It makes big ideas concrete, helping us understand ideas like hypocrisy, forgiveness, sacrifice and love.We need drama in our ministries, in our churches and on our college campuses. We need drama that helps us tell the story of Jesus so that people can hear and respond. In this "sketchbook" Alison Siewert offers twelve scripts of Gospel stories, from the nativity to the resurrection, that will help those who have ears to hear the Word of God.
  • Fabulous Fun Costumes
    by Juliet Moxley
    ISBN: 0806998520
    Amazon.com
    From surprisingly humble beginnings (a purchased sweat suit, or a simple-to-sew jumpsuit, pattern included) comes a lively menagerie of costumes that will delight young kids. To the basic suits of black, white, or gray (a couple use green), add a simple fake fur tabard or hood of varying design and the occasional extra accessory and you get a turtle, chimpanzee, elephant, butterfly, panda, penguin, skunk, stegosaurus, tarantula, vampire bat, and eight other critters; full directions and patterns are given for each. Perhaps the key ingredient in each costume's success is the well-designed face-painting scheme, for which detailed step-by-step instructions are provided. (Snazaroo is actually a brand of face paint available at craft stores, but any brand will do.) Costume construction is mostly easy (straightforward stitching; sometimes fusible web or fabric glue), and each project includes a kid-friendly sidebar that explains a bit about the animal's behavior and/or eating habits so youngsters can practice acting like their chosen creature and even learn a bit about it. One small quibble: the general instructions say the patterns are intended for ages 6 to 12, but the designs are more likely to appeal to ages 3 to 8; the average 10-year-old is likely to find them too juvenile. However, the gridded patterns can be enlarged to any desired size, so it shouldn't be a problem to adjust down for the littlest trick-or-treaters. --Amy Handy

  • Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!: Voices from a Medieval Village

    ISBN: 0763615781
    Step back to an English village in 1255, where life plays out in dramatic vignettes illuminating twenty-two unforgettable characters.

    Maidens, monks, and millers’ sons — in these pages, readers will meet them all. There’s Hugo, the lord’s nephew, forced to prove his manhood by hunting a wild boar; sharp-tongued Nelly, who supports her family by selling live eels; and the peasant’s daughter, Mogg, who gets a clever lesson in how to save a cow from a greedy landlord. There’s also mud-slinging Barbary (and her noble victim); Jack, the compassionate half-wit; Alice, the singing shepherdess; and many more. With a deep appreciation for the period and a grand affection for both characters and audience, Laura Amy Schlitz creates twenty-two riveting portraits and linguistic gems equally suited to silent reading or performance. Illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings by Robert Byrd — inspired by the Munich-Nuremberg manuscript, an illuminated poem from thirteenth-century Germany — this witty, historically accurate, and utterly human collection forms an exquisite bridge to the people and places of medieval England.

  • Shakespeare: For All Time
    by Stanley Wells
    ISBN: 0195160932
    From the entry of Shakespeare's birth in the Stratford church register to a Norwegian production of Macbeth in which the hero was represented by a tomato, this enthralling and splendidly illustrated book tells the story of Shakespeare's life, his writings, and his afterlife.

    Drawing on a lifetime's experience of studying, teaching, editing, and writing about Shakespeare, Stanley Wells combines scholarly authority with authorial flair in a book that will appeal equally to the specialist and the untutored enthusiast. Chapters on Shakespeare's life in Stratford and in London offer a fresh view of the development of the writer's career and personality. At the core of the book lies a magisterial study of the writings themselves--how Shakespeare set about writing a play, his relationships with the company of actors with whom he worked, his developing mastery of the literary and rhetorical skills that he learned at the Stratford grammar school, the essentially theatrical quality of the structure and language of his plays. Subsequent chapters trace the fluctuating fortunes of his reputation and influence. Here are accounts of adaptations, productions, and individual performances in England and, increasingly, overseas; of great occasions such as the Garrick Jubilee and the tercentenary celebrations of 1864; of the spread of Shakespeare's reputation in France and Germany, Russia and America, and, more recently, the Far East; of Shakespearian discoveries and forgeries; of critical reactions, favorable and otherwise, and of scholarly activity; of paintings, music, films and other works of art inspired by the plays; of the plays' use in education and the political arena, and of the pleasure and intellectual stimulus that they have given to an increasingly international public.

    Shakespeare, said Ben Jonson, was not of an age but for all time. This is a book about him for our time.
