Complete Script

In order to emphasize the message of the production, Savior of the World: His Birth and Resurrection is meant to be staged simply.


Scene segments are artificial divisions created for purposes of organization and should not be considered hard breaks in the action. Instead, scenes should unfold rapidly and lyrically, flowing without interruption from one to another. Simple structures and props that can be carried on and off by the actors can be used to suggest a variety of settings.

Suggestions about set design, stage properties, costumes, and so forth are available under Production Guidelines. You may also download the complete script in PDF format ( PDF ).
