Justin’s Journeyland Theater

Every six weeks our elementary bible classes rotate through 6 centers based on a bible story.  In 6 years they will have gone through the bible learning the major characters.

One center is the theater.  Every week the kids put on a play on Wed. night.  They start learning lines and where to stand on Sunday.   Parents, siblings and one or two other classes are invited to watch on Wed. night the last ten minutes of class.

This rotation they are learning about Elijah.  Justin was a guard to King Ahab.  He got to play Moses, when they learned about Moses.  This picture is of the priest calling to Baal to light the alter.

This picture is of Elijah’s helpers pouring water on his alter.

 

Justin didn’t have any lines, so he spent his whole time on stage trying to get the light to reflect off his sword into the faces of the audience members.  Fortunately for him he couldn’t see me in the audience (because it was dark) trying to get his attention, to stop blinding the audience.

    So funny to hear about Justin playing with the sword’s reflection!!! Makes me think of teaching! You have to learn how to properly occupy your students so they stay out of trouble! I’m sure some of the audience was getting a kick out of it!

    Wow, those are amazing pictures. I had no idea those productions were so elaborate. I’m sure you just have a good camera, too…. 😉

    I was there for the 08′ play. 🙂 It was a good one. I actually have pictures of it myself. HA!
    I haven’t been to a play this year, and my kids did one recently. I’m a bad Journey Man.

    Leave it to Justin to think outside the box. Wish we could have been there to see him. It looks very authentic.
