VARIOUS OPTIONS FOR BOOKING OUR PROGRAMS

OPTION 1:  SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP

It is difficult to get most churches to cooperate on any community-wide, inter-church endeavors on Sunday mornings.  That is thoroughly understandable.  Most of our plays are designed simple enough to be set up and performed for single church services for their Sunday morning worship.

OPTION 2:  SUNDAY EVENING ACROSS TOWN

As noted on our Calendar page, we can perform some of our plays on a Sunday morning, strike the set, travel within a 30-minute range, set up again, and be back on stage for an evening presentation at 6:00, or 7:00 p.m. at another area church.   It is a lot of work, and a mad scramble, but it can be exciting!

OPTION 3:  SUNDAY EVENING ENCORE

A newer Option we have found successful in the past several years is the Sunday Evening Encore, where the Host Church allows us to leave our sets in place and invite other churches in the area to gather for a community-wide, inter-church outreach.   That way we can reach many more souls in a singe road trip.  Here are some factors to bear in mind.

  • When you contact DDM for a booking, consider including other churches in our area..
  • We can provide DVD movie-style trailers to each participating church to help promote the event.
  • It is our goal to acknowledge, during the curtain call, every pastor and church present.
  • This kind of cooperation makes it possible for churches to share the mileage expense.

OPTION 4:  FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY EVENINGS

We are also available for booking time slots other than Sunday mornings.  We have discovered most churches are so fully scheduled, it is rare they have a free Sunday morning for booking outside events, like our dramas.  As one local pastor told Alan, "Call me about a Friday evening and I'll book you in a heartbeat."

Another reason for focussing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings is the fact that two of our plays are so elaborate, it takes a full day for set up, and a half day for rehearsal.  That could include combinations of Friday evening, Saturday matinee, Saturday evening, Sunday matinee and Sunday evening.  WOW, WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY!
