Book description of Everything’s New and Who’s Who in Clown Ministry, with 75 skits for special events – by Janet Litherland
The author of the first complete text on clown ministry is back by popular demand with this follow-up book. Clown ministry has grown, changed and flourished in the decade-plus since its inception. This book updates through inspirational features and dynamic new material. Part I – Who’s Who contains profiles on the “movers and shakers” in the clown ministry field, including “Where are they now?” looks at clowns featured in The Clown Ministry Handbook. Veteran clown ministers from America and abroad share performance tips and anecdotes, their philosophies of clown ministry and more. “Before and after” photographs (with clown makeup and without) and other illustrations add a delightful dimension to the clowns’ stories. Part II – Everything New contains seventy-five clown skits for all the traditional holidays and a few untraditional ones as well, such as Good Neighbor Day, National Procrastination Week and even National Nothing Day! Some contain spoken dialog and some are pantomimed. Skits are included for any number of clowns, from one to a whole troupe. Prop lists and production notes accompany each skit. Contains a wealth of fresh, funny material.
