PRODUCTION NOTES

Set

  • Minimalist: use cardboard boxes or ladders or simple chairs and tools to represent the different houses and objects used in the skits.
  • Full-Scale: build simple backdrops that can be “added” to with each lesson, “building” the houses as the lessons progress.

Costuming

  • Modern: the actors wear their every-day clothes, or use certain colors or prints to interpret different cultures or areas of the world.
  • Biblical: the actors wear Biblical costumes, despite the modern wording of the scripts, adding a simple comedic feel to the parable.

Key Terms

  • BEAT: this word indicates an emotional or physical transition in the dialogue.
  • Lights up: when using physical lighting, this term indicates when the stage lighting is “up,” or lit to full capacity.
  • Lights down: when using physical lighting, this term indicates when the stage lighting is “down,” or off completely.
