The Jesse Tree is a more elaborate Advent or Christmas Pageant based on a full script, especially suited for use with 7-10 year olds. The play consists of ten short vignettes tied together with the visual prop of a large Jesse tree. (The Jesse Tree is an Advent devotion based on Old Testament symbols and stories about God’s promised Messiah.) After each vignette, one or more symbols are placed on the tree, as the narrator recites lines tying the symbol or symbols to the coming of Jesus Christ. The play concludes with a short litany based on the symbol-filled tree.
The cast includes 2 narrators and 28 other persons. This presentation is intended for use by youth, adults, and families and is 45 minutes in length for a group of 12 individuals. This script includes 16 pages for print.
