Looking for something fresh and creative for the Advent season? Here's a charming set of five lighthearted plays that's sure to engage audiences and set the holiday spirit while remaining focused on the scriptural message. Written in whimsical rhyming verse, the scenes detail the prophecies of the Messiah and the story of the Incarnation through the interaction of three angels (Gabriel, Wonderful, and, Marvelous) with several biblical characters.

Congregations of any size will find these sketches easy to use -- only a small cast is needed, and the readers' theater format means no extensive costuming or staging is required.

Scenes include:
* Gabriel's Horn (Last Sunday of Pentecost)
* The Honeymooners (Advent 1)
* The Cleanup Crew (Advent 2)
* The Reading Club (Advent 3)
* Step Up To The Plate (Advent 4)

Two of the angel characters reappear after a 33-year "vacation" in "M.I.H. -- Missing In Heaven," an Easter verse drama (also written by Frank Ramirez) included in the CSS anthology Roll Back The Stone.
