“Funny, fast and furious! Brilliant”
For children and adults alike!
NewChapter’s ‘The Bible in 45 minutes’ is a fast paced, fun filled performance, designed to spark interest and excitement in students and teachers alike. This allows any group the opportunity to explore the Bible itself and the themes that are a major part of it; themes that are still as applicable today as they have always been.
Bringing The Bible to life
The Bible is a very interesting and exciting book, filled with struggle, passion and adventure; though to a great number of people these elements are lost amongst the numbers, genealogies and dry facts that are also a major part of the Bible. NewChapter’s ‘The Bible in 45 minutes’ is designed to combat these issues head on, by focusing on the linear narrative of the Israelites, from Adam to Jesus, removing the dryness and bringing life, laughter, excitement and fun back to an audience that may have forgotten that these elements exist within The Bible. The students will get to see the characters and the struggles they faced, their victories and failures and how, above it all, this book still holds relevance for people today.
Why study the Bible?
NewChapters ‘The Bible in 45 minutes’, and accompanying workshops, are a great way to begin, end or enrich any study on this very important cultural and historic object – especially if ‘vivid’ and ‘lively’ are elements you think are important when communicating and teaching students.
“An outstanding performance by a brilliant team; seamlessly executed in a unique and visually striking style. I would highly recommend this performance to any primary or secondary school teacher who wants to impart a firm introduction to the Bible to their students.”
Our aim is to bring real theatrical performances that are great entertainment, engaging and interesting and that aid a school, and its teachers, in educating their students. At its heart, NewChapter is about storytelling; storytelling with a purpose – to educate, to impart, to inform; storytelling designed to aid schools and teachers in their aims and goals – not just entertainment for entertainments sake (though it is really entertaining). We want to offer schools all the pluses of a trip to the theatre with none of the negatives.
“So engaging; it really brought the Bible to life! I thoroughly enjoyed it!”
