Temple & Olivet Discourse
This production features Jesus' famous and final warnings to the scribes and Pharisees and especially to all who would be His disciples. Listen first hand to what the signs are of His coming and the end of the age. Seasoned believers as well as those who have never heard the Gospel will return with all their heart, mind soul and strength to the Lord.
This drama can be done with a full cast and uses members of the local congregation to play disciples, scribes and Pharisees. It is equally effective and exciting as a one-man presentation by Dennis Cole as Jesus.
If doing this as a one-man presentation, please us the logistics & setup proceedure below, if using a cast, please use the guidelines to the right.
| Logistics & Setup
If using a full Cast
Casting & Rehearsal: At least 4 people need to play Pharisees, scribes & disciples, others are needed as additional cast. More is certanly better, up to 12 apostles, as well as 4 others to play Pharisees and others. Casting for the Temple & Olivet Discourse will be done ahead of time, before we get there. If possible, the cast needs to work on their parts ahead of time. We will provide scripts for them.
Rehearsal: The Olivet & Temple Discourse needs at a minimum a 4 hour rehearsal time prior to the event. We usually do this rehearsal the day before the event.
Sound Management: If possible, in addition to the cast members, we would like to have the person responsible for sound management to be available during at least part of the scheduled rehearsal. Dennis requires a lapel mic and we will also need a handheld mic. Our music and sound is on CD or tape.
Costumes: The cast should plan on providing their own costumes. All cast members need to bring leather sandals or if that isn't possible, barefoot is fine.
Props: Chairs enough for the cast to sit on set on the podium area. Podium are should be cleared of pulpit and instruments enough for large middle space to be available.
Arrival Time: DCM & local Cast will arrive at least 1 hour before the service starts to work out last minute details.
Rooms & Water: Two rooms are needed for the men and women to change into costume. Also, please provide water.
Information Table: A table or space on a table for information about this ministry to be set out. It doesn't have to be a large space but we would like it if it could be in a visible location.
