WHAT THE CHILDREN SAW

A Lenten Project by

Deb Gerace

 (From The Passion According to Kids)

What The Children Saw, a skit, short story and song kit derived from the musical, The Passion According to Kids is designed as a stand-alone performance and teaching vehicle for Lent.  The skit, a 5 minute drama permits us to witness the crucifixion of Jesus through the eyes of two adolescents, a Jewish girl and a Roman boy whose father just happens to be the Roman Centurion in charge of the terrible event.   The drama then deals with their horrified reactions.  The story however, fleshes out these two characters and lets the reader learn what occurred a few days afterwards when they meet again in the marketplace. Finally, the song, “The Clouds Wept Tears of Rain,” is a simple minor key round which includes teaching ideas for musical accompaniment, instructions for the added graceful manual interpretation via American Sign Language and an opportunity to unite children and adults in a simple but effective and inclusive multi-media activity or performance project.

This project was created to inspire youth to want to learn more about Christ’s Passion.   It provides families, churches, Sunday Schools, youth groups, choirs, home-schoolers and Bible classes a brief, entertaining, yet informative way to approach Lent without having to invest in the longer and more intense musical from which it was derived. Using drama, music and story-telling, What The Children Saw brings a serious event to life through the experiences of its two simple characters and is designed to hopefully trigger excitement, interest, questions and discussion.

SOON TO BE AVAILABLE FOR THE 2013 LENTEN SEASON.
