A Christmas sketch

So, what is the nativity? by Dan Jones

Here is a silly sketch I wrote a few years ago when I was a youth and childrens worker for a church.

The Crib Service was creeping up so I decided to retell the Nativity story through two friends (one slightly ditzy) having a conversation. The sketch is split into three parts as the custom in the church was to reveal the figures and build the nativity scene at different stages of the service. However, singing a carol in between the gaps will work as well.

When Vanessa (the curate) and I performed it, we were hidden away so the voices just boomed out of the speakers. This seemed to work really well as everyone focussed on the nativity, and we didnt have to learn the words. Its all a bit of fun and hopefully shares the true meaning of Christmas in a dramatic way.
