Don't Freak Out: An Original Christmas Pageant Script

Hundreds of congregations have performed my previous original skits, The Best Story: An Imperfect Christmas Pageant and A Mary Carol. I am happy to share my most recent original Christmas pageant script, Don't Freak Out. It's sweet, educational, and marvelously quirky.

While Don't Freak Out follows the traditional story of the annunciation and nativity as it is told in the gospels, this version of the story has a powerful subtext regarding consent - after all, Mary did have a say in her role in the narrative!

The play runs about 10 minutes, and would be perfect in the context of an Advent or Christmas family worship service. It can be memorized or performed as a readers theater.

Don't Freak Out can be previewed in full here.

The theological fine print: 
The play is an imaginative riff on the story of the Annunciation rooted in fairly orthodox theology. The script will work in diverse faith communities, including those who believe in the virgin birth as well as those who believe the story is symbolic.

The legal fine print: 
The author must be credited in written materials related to your production. By purchasing this script, you will have permission to make as many copies of the script as you need. You may also adapt the script according to your production needs, but this should be noted accordingly in your bulletin, etc. You may not publish or distribute this script beyond your school or congregation. In the state of Illinois, purchasing downloads does not constitute the transfer of tangible property, and is therefore not subject to sales tax.

The lowdown:
You will receive the script via email within 24 hours after I have received your payment from PayPal.

Don't Freak Out is available for purchase as a PDF for $14.00.
