Jesus compared himself to a shepherd. What does that mean? This scene between a shepherd and his grandchild considers what it means that Jesus was wrapped in clothes and laid in a manger, how his life changed as a result of meeting Jesus, and what it really means to be a Good Shepherd.
This scene gives a great opportunity for a child from your church to participate. The scene is perfect for boy or girl 8-12 years old. They would have some to memorize…mostly conversational. I would need one rehearsal, preferably the day before the performance. They would need a “traditional” shepherd’s costume that fits them.
Approximately 30 minutes.
Needs for this performance:
Sound: Two lavalier or head-worn wireless microphones if needed for the space. A sound technician available at least 1 hour before the service to go over sound cues played from either my mp3 player or a CD.
Lighting: If stage lighting is available, three areas (left, center and one right) and, if available, one light up a central aisle for the beginning. A lighting technician available 1 hour before the service to go over lighting cues.
Stage and furniture: No special staging requirements.
Begins at the back of a central aisle. Ends on stage.
