Best-Selling Christmas Monologues

While seeking a lost sheep from his flock, a lone shepherd sees the angel’s announcement of Christ’s birth from afar. He realizes his search for the one is more important than he thought.

A humorous way to introduce an Advent, Christmas Eve, or Christmas Service, this comedic monologue depicts a disappointed Suzy Snowflake as she realizes that the Messiah’s birthday can still be celebrated without snow.

A frazzled young woman struggles with the disenchantment that can come when our holiday expectations don't align with reality, and the idols we mistakenly establish in our hearts.

This monologue, designed to be presented on Christmas Eve before the story of Jesus' birth is shared, expresses through one voice the many thoughts and feelings of those who are drawn to Christmas.

Do you ever feel that God is nowhere near and can’t understand your pain? Over 2000 years ago, Jesus, God’s Son, came into the world, not as royalty but as a baby born in a stable full of muck and animals. This script reminds us of the sacrifice that Jesus made by humbling himself to become one of us. It was a dirty job and he didn’t have to do it…but the world is changed because he did.

Best-Selling Christmas Plays

A Christmas Play: The town of Bethlehem is on the verge of a world changing event, the birth of our Savior. A young couple expecting a baby has traveled to Bethlehem to be counted as part of the Roman census. Mary’s baby is about to be born and Joseph looks for a place for them to stay. The audience will get to experience the events of the night through the reporting of the Nazareth Evening news. In addition, field reporters will bring breaking news updates, interview eyewitnesses who saw the choir of angels, and report on the census “debacle.” Shepherds, Wisemen, and even Mary and Joseph are interviewed by eager reporters excited to get the story out. This version of the nativity story creatively and humorously mixes biblical truths with present day elements and jargon.

In this one-act, children's Christmas Eve play, the story of Jesus' birth is told. As the storyteller narrates in rhyme, Joseph, Mary, the Innkeeper, and a Shepherd share their stories.

This easy-to-stage Christmas pageant requires no rehearsal and has a role for everyone! Children can be the primary participants or the whole congregation can get involved (including the pastor)! Guided by a storyteller, participants get in on the act in this memorable pageant celebrating Jesus’ birth.

Used by Ruth and Naomi, Mary and Joseph, and possibly even the Magi, the road between Jerusalem and Bethlehem is integral to the story redemption. This play, set on that road, uses humor to tell the story of Christmas in a new way, and leaves the audience with the message that Jesus welcomes everyone. No clean up required!
