Overview

Caspar: I had a strange dream last night, and I woke convinced that we should go in a different way.

Melchior: Odd that you should say that -- I had a dream too! I am convinced that Herod has no desire to worship the child -- he sees him as a threat to his throne. (from "The Wise Men" drama)

Here is a collection of short Advent dramas. The series can be presented with few rehearsals and limited props and costumes. Each drama easily fits within a worship setting. For a longer service, the dramas could be combined and offered as scenes for one complete service.

This series includes:

• Mary and Elizabeth -- Advent 1

• The villagers of Nazareth -- Advent 2

• Ziph the Shepherd and his Wife Jerah -- Advent 3

• Gabriel -- Advent 4

• The Innkeeper's Wife -- Christmas Eve

• The Wise Men -- Epiphany
