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."
Ghostcatchers 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.
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 :)
