An enactment or drama is different than you think,.. go here and see what is called a ritual drama or ritual enactment from that webpage here is an excerpt:
Explaining Cultic Theatres and Ritual drama to the modern non-christian requires a definition. Rather than a definition an example would be: The Cultus of Aphrodite would be practiced in the Temple of Aphrodite and/or the Sanctuary of Aphrodite. [A cult is the care of a God or Goddess. The cultus is the system or variety of religious worship] A cultic theater play or ritual and enactment is what they performed during feasts as well as for other ceremonies. As far as we know some of the Cultic Theater and Ritual Drama performed in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the latter half of the 20th century after WWII had not been enacted or performed for thousands of years. With help from the academic community in the University of Californiaand The California State University, research and practical knowledge was shared between practitioners and professors.
One of the questions discussed with the professors was the subject of Cultic Theatres and Ritual Drama which was a major obstruction to the recognition of ancient religious practices by the state, local and federal governments of the United States of America. This is NOT a small issue and was directly tied into the 1960’s and 1970’s religious civil rights movements. This simple question of what was a governmentally recognizable religious observance of a prayer, a ritual or a rite was and still is a major topic when we begin to consider various forms of care and worship that were indigenous public and private observances, rituals and ceremonies. Some of these early observances were forcibly broken up by various US federal, state and local police agencies. Indeed the problem remains to this very day but the pieces are finally in place to accurately describe and protect one of the most sacred American liberties. The Freedom of Religion
