TALENT SHOW OF GIFTS – NOTES - written by Tanis Harms

(Geared for a creative arts camp for kids, this is easy
and has many bit parts and talent numbers to go around.
For some of the numbers, I have made suggestions,
for others you can find appropriate songs, dances, etc.)

PREMISE:     A talent show is being rehearsed,
.            and things keep going wrong, all the while
.            one person is trying to figure out
.            their talent so they can be in the show.
STYLE:       talent show and vignettes
TOPIC:       gifts, talents
SCRIPTURE:   Rom.6:7-8; 1 Cor.12:1-31; Eph.4:7-13;


SET is simple:  3 microphones at stage left,
.               center stage and stage right.
