From the Publisher

Drama is hot these days in the church. But the lack of training and of understanding what makes drama work is enormous. Now the information void is filled with a wealth of expert insight from the director of one of the nation's top drama ministries. From directing procedures, to building a drama ministry team, to actor training, to sketch writing, and more, Steve Pederson of Willow Creek supplies the practical help church drama directors have longed for. Complete with a CD-ROM with video demonstration of techniques used to create stage movement, this book is a must-have for anyone who leads a drama ministry.

Format: Paperback
I'm my churchs first drama director and I needed a resource to help me get our drama ministry off the ground. This is it. It is very well written and covers everything concerning a drama ministry. It includes many different kinds of acting exercises and the cd shows different blocking techniques that can be used on the same sketch. There are a number of recommended resources at the end of the book. It is a very interesting read from cover to cover and several scripts are included to explain various details. You won't be sorry you bought this book.

Steve Pederson's book is a great resource for the beginning or experienced drama director. It includes many theatre games, how to have community time, and a CD ROM that visually explains how to block a scene. I would highly reccomend it.

This Drama Ministry book was bought as a gift for someone involved in prison ministry. It covers all important aspects of drama without being too costly. The recipient said it was excellent. It teaches how to coordinate and teach drama ministry. The recipient uses it in the prison chapel services to teach important Scriptural truths. He is very happy with this resource.

This book was interesting. I feel that sometimes is confusing and then others repetitive. I did learn some from it, and would recommend it because it's useful if you want to start a drama ministry at church.
