Freebie Friday #48: The Christmas Caper who-done-it script

Free youth ministry resources every FridayThis is the script for a “Who done it” dramatization written by a friend of mine. I’ve used it several times around Christmas and each time was a blast! Students split up into teams and are driven around town to different locations to watch different segments of a mystery unfold: Did grandma get run over by a reindeer? At the end, all teams gather together and present their solution to the mystery and enjoy hot cider and refreshments. Download the script below for full details about how this fun youth event works.

  • Carolyn, this is the only one I have like this right now. My friend writes a lot of scripts like this pretty often, so maybe in the future I can get a couple more from him to post here.
