The Imitators

  • Cast Number: 5
  • Run-time: 4 minutes

A mime that speaks of following Jesus, not false gods or pretenders. Exhibiting true beliefs through heart-felt action. The basic idea is that so often an individual tries to imitate other people and their worldly attitudes but ends up disappointed each time., rather than following the model of Jesus.

There may be any number of mimes or clowns in this drama.
