A. The Zany Cow Kidnapping This takes place in a one room school house and is full of the unexpected. This is a great play to put on with mostly younger kids (8-
B. Cruising Into Trouble
This takes place on a cruise ship with a great variety of kids who have won national honors for something!! What happens, though, when some unexpected passengers (three comedians) accidentally get booked for the wrong cruise? Fun, mischief, humor and action! Really zany characters and some challenging ones! 1 ½ hours, 20+ kids, some challenges with sets, but nothing I can’ t help you solve! I’ve done this one twice it is so much fun!
C. Letters From the Homefront
Trouble comes to the Ellison's house during World War II when their younger daughter and her friends try to help the war effort with disastrous results! Full of fun and suspense. A real tribute to our soldiers and how we can serve and thank them. Really fun character parts and lots of humor! Cast of about 24, or less. Easy sets and time period costumes.
D. Dude Ranch for Sale (Cow Pies Included) The audiences LOVED this mystery/comedy play. Costumes are easy as it takes place at a summer camp held at a dude ranch. This is a full length play for kids 10-
No horses needed, but the cow pies are a “must”….or at least make the audience think they are cow pies!
E. A Site For Sore Ears
This was everyone’s favorite! Poodle skirts, a 50’s soda bar and add the skateboards, hula hoops and zany old ladies. Every part is full of personality from the absent minded mailman to the nerd imitator to the confused foreign exchange student. The theme for this play is how we use our tongue….for trouble! 2 fun-
F. The Unlegendary Legends of the West This play covers 75 years of wild west history with 25 kids each playing several parts. Action-

The theme for this play is holding on to your integrity as a Christian even when you are mistreated. This takes place in a general store at the turn of the century in the west. Cast of about 20 kids aged 11-
#2 The Cause Of It All
The theme for this play is priorities, honesty, and fairness as Christians. It takes place in the living room of a newspaper editor who doesn't know his wife is having "Women's Rights to Vote" meetings in his home. So funny….many humorous scenes! Time period costumes and easy sets. (My favorite!) 1 1/2 hours in length. For kids 11-
#3 Chairlift to Heaven
The theme for this play is giving God your best and being willing to share your faith in the face of unfair treatment. It takes place in modern times when a youth group goes on a ski trip to a lodge where the owner has an old grudge against the youth pastor. Each character represents a Proverb from the Bible and the audience has a contest in their program for fun to see if they can match the Proverb with the characters.
#4 Return to Paradise
In this play a group of young school friends who haven't seen each other for 15 or more years are secretly reunited at a hotel in Hawaii owned by their first Sunday School teacher who is about to die. Fire, floods, and the discovery of why they were brought there keeps the play full of action! Each character represents a parable from the Bible which the audience can guess from the program while watching the play. 1 ½ hours. Can be adapted to adults, but originally written for kids 11-
#5 The Night Before Christmas Eve Service
This is a short play (about 20 minutes) that could be used for a Christmas service. It takes place in the living room of an elder as everyone in leadership of a church gathers. They have just learned that two teenagers were playing with fire behind the church, and the church burned down! There are various ideas about how to handle this situation and what attitudes to have. The youth group comes up with a “love your enemy” idea that isn’t too well received until the end. 6-

A little bit about Christie:
Christie Miller started writing and directing plays over 20 years ago. She is a 37 year veteran English teacher with an emphasis in drama. When she first started, parents asked her to write some plays where there were no “stars” with all of the lines. She was able to accomplish this goal so that all the kids have great parts, lots of lines
and are on stage a lot.
This is unlike other drama group who have kids in the cast with only one or two lines. She is noted for being creative, adaptive, and that her plays are fun to watch because no one knows the ending. In fact, some plays have a few endings so that parents who come more than once are even surprised! Christie is a conservative Christian so each play is tasteful and moral but entertaining!
Her plays can also be adjusted as to the size of cast and gender of many of the parts.
