Audience Participation Stories
These are stories that require a little more from your audience. In David and Goliath the audience must listen for key words and respond accordingly. The Jonah story is really a directed play with people from the audience encouraged to take part in the story as you are telling it.
This is an audience participation story about David and Goliath. It is taken almost exclusively directly from the NIV text. In this story the audience responds by yelling or moving when specific keywords are read.
This is a comical retelling of the story of Jonah. Before the story you select members of the audience to come on stage and help you out. Then you read the story and as you get to key places the volunteers act out the story. It is funny and fun, and a good way to get the audience involved in the action.
