BEAT STREETNOTES - written by Tanis Harms

PREMISE:     A reporter goes into a questionable
.            neighborhood to film a documentary about
.            young adults facing prevalent temptations,
.            only to find a particular group who
.            try to keep each other accountable
.            and on the “straight-and-narrow.”
STYLE:       street dancing and drama
TOPIC:       temptation
SCRIPTURE:   1Cor.10:13, Gal.3:26-29, Eph.4:31-32

BACK TO
SCRIPT


SET:         optional, CITY SCENE in rough neighborhood

PROPS:       video camera;  books and backpacks,
.            bagged liquor bottle or a “bag”
.            “baby” and baby stroller,

MICS:        Only one handheld microphone is needed.
.            REPORTER would hold this out to catch
.            everything everyone is saying.
.            This way dancers do not have to worry
.            about mics flying off their heads.
.            You could give a head-mic
.            to REPORTER and/or CAMERAMAN.

CAST NOTE:   some lines can be assigned to others
