Product Description
This product in as 11 page PDF file. It is a 5 act skit for the explanation of Reformation Day. The skit takes about 15 minutes to perform. There are some ideas for costumes and props, so it can be quite elaborate or rather simple. The skit can be for up to 26 children or as few as 10.

There are 6 narrator roles (this could be two or three children). I have second and third graders reading for 6 parts. There are 6-12 children/friend roles. I have six first/second graders playing both the role of friend in Act 1 and child in Acts 3 & 4. The pre-school (non reading children) are involved in explaining their Halloween costume in Act 1 and hand out "bread" in Act 2. They can also follow the children/friends around for the entire skit if desired.

I have a first grader playing a "Monk" and making a thunder noise and a third grader playing Martin Luther. Of course, the roles could be distributed according to reading abilities and desire for the children.

I used six narrators. At the beginning of each act, one of the younger kids announce the act and narrators take their place. At the end of each act, they switch with each other. I used very minimal costumes. All of my narrators and "friends" are wearing "Reformation Day" t-shirts. They could simply wear read. Martin Luther and Monk are wearing graduation gowns. And the children are wearing Reformation t-shirts, then some pieces of our "Shepard" costumes for Acts 2 & 3, and then a little knight armor (from the dollar store) for Act 4.

As for props, I have a print out of the 95 theses, a bank with coins, index cards (indulgences) a feather (for a quill pen), pieces of bread and a few Halloween Costumes. There could be official thunder sounds and lightening flashes, but we are not that technological yet. Also, a PowerPoint presentation could be used to enhance the performance by adding pictures to be shown in the background. I did include one photo per act that could be copied and pasted into a slide show. But again, our church is not quite there.

So, you can see that this could be modified for your individual use. If you're looking for a cute, simple way to teach Reformation, I think you'd enjoy this product.
