This is a religious reader's theater intended for a small group of 5 students. It was written to introduce the topic of idols. In the script, there is a game show that addresses whether or not America has idols. Each of the contestants act like their name. Caveat in this case means advice. While most of the advice is good even Caveat will make a mistake. Everyone will learn that idols aren’t just little gold statues with natives chasing those who would steal it. Idols are anything that take the place of God in our lives and keep us from His purpose.The more you get into your role, the MORE the audience will get into it. It would make a great skit performed before a sermon or before a discussion in class. I have also included a question at the end for writing purposes. Like all my other religious reader's theaters this is free. It is how I give back to God. I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place. My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
