Rev. Van Buchanan submitted these photos of their performance of a “Let’s Skit Crazy!” script, titled “A Midnight Dreary” (read it here) at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Morganton, North Carolina, during their recent Fall Festival.

In the script, a man is spending a stormy night at home by himself. When he thinks that an escaped convict is lurking outside, he forgets the Bible lesson on fear he was studying, and panics. A comedy of terrors results, as circumstances conspire to bring him to the brink of a nervous breakdown. After turning back to the scriptures for comfort, he discovers that our imagined fears and reality are often two very different things.

Using the “Play/Act” recorded soundtrack CD for accompaniment, the actors had fun with their performance, unfettered by having to memorize lines.

Derek Crane digs into the snack foods he has stockpiled for his night alone.

Derek assures his wife that he is fine, as she calls to check up on him. The night is still young, however.

After a series of frightening events, Derek rediscovers his source of peace.

Derek dons a sheet and makes fun of his own fears.

Derek is about to finish off the invading stranger who has collapsed on his floor.

Not letting fear dictate his actions, Derek learns that the invader just needs a helping hand.
Thanks, Van, for sending the pictures of your performance! I love seeing people having fun doing the scripts I’ve posted.

What We Offer:

Dramatic Plays:
Our plays range from 20 minutes all the way up to 80 minutes. They are written to engage the viewer, make them think, to impact the emotions, and present the Gospel in such a way that they perceive it as meeting the needs of their life. The aim is to bless the believer, and give the person that has never made a decision for Christ a desire to invite Him into their life.

Comedic Skits:
Our skits range in length from 5 minutes up to 20 minutes. While most are comedic in nature, using humor to impart a perspective that may not have been considered, the laughs are all tied into the message, and there is always a resolution that leads the viewer into consideration of the Truth contained in it. The humor can be enjoyed by all ages.

Soundtracks:
The soundtracks that we make to accompany the scripts add drama and emotional impact to the script’s performance. There are two different kinds of script and soundtrack; the kind where you do the lines live and the soundtrack is played at certain times during the performance; and second, the kind that supplies all the narration, music and effects mixed together to play as the actors perform, with no lines to learn. Each script description page tells you which kind it is under the “Soundtrack Key.”
