Berkeley Street Theatre
How Improvisation and Street Theater Emerged as a Christian Outreach to the Culture of the Time
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Berkeley Street Theatre is a call for Christians to use theater to attract and convict seekers . . . I highly recommend the reading and use of Berkeley Street Theatre for those interested in history, thoughtful and creative outreach, and practical, hands-on information."
--Aida Besancon Spencer, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author of God through the Looking Glass: Glimpses from the Arts
"Many people have had negative church experiences but still want to know more about God. If they are reluctant to step back into a church community, Christian theater is the perfect parable to bridge the gap. I wholeheartedly endorse this book because it models theater as Christian outreach."
--Teresa Flowers, author of How to Have an Attitude of Gratitude on the Night Shift
"I recommend this book because it explains how Christian theater brings people to Jesus. This book combines love of Jesus and love of performing arts together. Bravo!"
--Monica "Happy" C. Valdivieso, performing artist
"Theatrical production is the perfect opportunity to show Christian truths modeled in everyday life. People don't want to be talked at, but rather want to draw their own conclusions from entertaining productions. This book clearly shows faith in action through a theatrical approach to ministry."
--Gemma Wenger, M. Ed., Beauty for Ashes Television and Radio Ministry, Los Angeles
