Acts of Renewal


Acts of Renewal Christian Drama Theatre

Since 1992 drama team Jim Shores & Carol Anderson-Shores have toured nationally as professional actors, writing and performing all their own material. 

Conferences...We write dynamic theatre pieces illustrating your keynote speaker’s message and get the audience emotionally involved in the conference.  

Colleges...We design chapel programming and evening performances addressing issues your students are dealing with: dating and marriage, healthy communication, eating disorders, family issues, etc. - guaranteed even to keep the baseball players awake!

Churches...We create insightful vignettes for worship services that illustrate scripture and enhance sermons. We also create enriching evening performances perfect for older children through adults - your teenager might even admit he enjoyed an evening at church!

Pregnancy Center Fundraisers…Jim and Carol ignite a room with hilarious, moving, powerful theatre called Acts of Renewal. They have performed at many conferences with organizations like  Carnet, Family Life and Focus on the Family and have brought outstanding entertainment to Pregnancy Resource Center fundraising events across the country.

Their fresh innovative programming works. Acts of Renewal brings uplifting performances of three plays; one funny, one illuminating, and one moving, that help get donors on board with both mind and heart to the importance of the work of your center.

Women’s Retreats - Have a women's event that combines professional theatre, great speaking, rich content... and generous waves of laughter.  Carol Anderson-Shores captivates audiences at women's events offering a fresh look at women of the Bible whose stories speak powerfully into our own struggles today.  Funny, relevant, and real, she has a gift for communicating truths of Scripture that encourage women with perspective and hope.

Event Reviews

"Acts of Renewal was a tremendous hit with our College Students & Single Adults! What a refreshing ability to connect with this challenging audience--dealing honestly and humorously with the challenges and frustrations of dating, family and work place relationships, while under girded by sound biblical application."

— Baptist Church, Asheville, NC 

"After having Acts of Renewal perform at our 19th annual fundraising banquet for the CPC, the continual refrain that I heard was, "this was the best banquet I have ever been to...and I've been to a lot of banquets!" From the quality of the performances to the pace of the evening, Jim and Carol brought a unique presentation that was uplifting, challenging and powerful! I may never go back to a keynote speaker again!

— Community Pregnancy Clinic of Simi Valley/Moorpark 

"An exceptional speaker. Her messages and sharing of her heart was an inspiration to our conference retreat.  I can't express enough how much she touched our lives."

— Women’s Conference Attendee
