The Skit Library G

A Compendium of Skits from various sources.

Gathering of the Nuts

An announcer asks if the audience will help with the squirrel's harvest. Several boys dressed up like squirrels with paper ears, tails, and brown clothes go out into the audience bring back people known for their crazy behavior. They are gathered on the stage and the announcer says that the title of the skit will be, "The Gathering of the Nuts."


Two guys start a ghost catching business. They go to this house and can't get rid of the ghost. The ghost finally leaves because one of the guys sings very badly and off key. The ghost can't stand it and leaves.

Glass of Water

There is a glass of water in the middle of the stage. First scout crawls across the floor crying for water. He dies dramatically shortly after beginning his crawl. The second person dies just short of the glass of water. The third person on his last bit of strength really hams up his desperation as much as he can. He reaches the water, takes out a comb, grooms his hair with the water, sighs with relief and goes off stage.

Granny's Candy Store

Paint a verbal picture of the various scouts acting as a cash register (person says ching, ching), popcorn machine (goes pop, pop), door (person holds arms horizontal,swinging saying creak, creak), tree, chair, etc. Have three guys standing there with no parts to play. Have several scouts come in one at a time, as customers. They ask Granny for various items of candy; licorice, gum, etc. Finally disgusted, a customer asks what she does have, and she says all she has left is these three suckers standing in the corner.

Giant Worm

On stage you have a boy conceled in a sleeping bag that is open on both ends, he is the Giant worm.
Several "hikers" happen upon the worm. The hikers are eating and carying with them a supply of candy bars. They look at each other in amazment ask ask each other "I wonder what he eats" The hikers hold some candy bars near the mouth of the worm. The worm gobbles up the candy bars wrappers and all. Then the worm quickly discards empty wrappers form the other end.(stuff happens). The hikers run away.
Another group of hikers comes along drinking soft drinks and repeats the routine.
The third group comes along with nothing to eat or drink. this group should have your smallest scout. this group also ponders what this giant worm would eat. At that moment the worm gobbles up the smallest scout. Then discards a pair of pants and shirt out the other end. The hikers run away. END OF SKIT :)
