They are allowed to work in small groups and my suggestion is that they retell a classic fairy tale, but I open to alternate story ideas. Two girls were debating possible story lines for their show.
"Well, we have to have Jesus in our puppet show"
"Jesus? I want to do a play about a unicorn."
"We could have Jesus, a unicorn and a rainbow." "
"What about a rainbow unicorn?"
And just like that, Jesus lost his starring role.
