Here’s a reader’s theatre setting of John 6:24-35.  It is based on The Voice translation of scripture, and is set for three voices.

Reader’s Theatre
(John 6:24-35)

One:     When the crowd realized that Jesus was gone,
            they boarded their small boats
            and crossed the sea to Capernaum, looking for Him. 
            When they found Jesus across the sea, they questioned Him.

Two:     Teacher, when did You arrive at Capernaum?

Three:   I tell you the truth—you are tracking Me down because I fed you,
            not because you saw signs from God.
            Don’t spend your life chasing food that spoils and rots.
            Instead, seek the food that lasts into all the ages,
            and comes from the Son of Man,
            the One on whom God the Father has placed His seal.

Two:     What do we have to do to accomplish the Father’s works?

Three:   If you want to do God’s work,
            then believe in the One He sent.

Two:     Can You show us a miraculous sign?
            Something spectacular?
            If we see something like that, it will help us to believe.
            Our fathers ate manna when they wandered in the desert.
            The Hebrew Scriptures say, “He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”

Three:   I tell you the truth:
            Moses did not give you bread from heaven;
            it is My Father who offers you true bread from heaven.
            The bread of God comes down out of heaven
            and breathes life into the cosmos.

Two:     Master, we want a boundless supply of this bread.

Three:   I am the bread that gives life.
            If you come to My table and eat, you will never go hungry.
            Believe in Me, and you will never go thirsty.
