Drama Ministry

It just wouldn't be Christmas without a little drama! If you'd like to present something simple but special for the holidays, Drama Ministry has a great selection of easy Christmas-themed scripts that can be performed by an individual, small team, or even larger casts.

In this feature, we'll explore a selection of 
Reader's Theatre Scripts for Christmas. These pieces call for smaller casts ranging from 1 to 6 readers, are shorter in length, and require less time to prepare and rehearse, so be sure to check them out!
