York Adams Area Council
one the boys drag on stage crying for water.
Each reaches a bucket with a ladle and takes a drink, splashing some
water to show there is really water in it and dies. Ham up the dying as much as you want. More than ladle may be needed so that there is plenty of
water to slosh around. The next
to the last person starts to drink from the bucket, when the last person
comes in sees all the dead bodies and yells for the other guy to drink from
the bucket, that it is poison. The
last person throws the bucket in the audience which really only contains
rice or confetti; only the ladles had water.
Circle 10 Council

The boy behind the wall or sheet is the cricket.
Two boys walk up to the cricket where they can be seen but the

Dogs in the Wild West
Heart of America
Cubs (Bartender, Dog and saloon customers in costumes) and Narrator.
Wild West Saloon. Cubs act out
in pantomime the action while the narrator reads.
and dry day in the Wild West, this dog walks into a saloon and says,
“Gimme a "Sasparilla”.
this type of thing wasn’t too rare ‘round those parts because the
bartender said, “I’m sorry, but we don’t serve dogs here.”
The dog then took out a silver dollar, dropped it on the bar, and
said, “Look, I got money, and I want a "Sasparilla.” This scene had the potential to get ugly.
The bartender, getting a little irate, said one more time, “We do
not serve dogs here. Please leave.” The
dog growled, so the bartender pulled out a gun and shot the dog in the foot!
The dog yelped, and ran out the door. The
next day, the swinging bar doors were tossed open and in walks the dog that
had been in the saloon the day before.
He was dressed all in black. A black cowboy hat, a black vest, three
black cowboy boots and one black bandage.
The dog looks around, waits for the talking to quiet down, and says,
“I’m lookin’ fer the man who shot my paw.”

Narrator, Man & Buffaloes
Costumes or signs indicating Buffaloes
Buffaloes stand quietly
One cloudless day out on a prairie, two buffaloes grazed peacefully.
Suddenly, a man ran out among them and started shouting.
(runs out and shouts) Hey! You
buffalo are big and ugly. Just
look at the size of your heads! And
phew, you guys smell awful.
Then, just as suddenly as the man appeared he disappeared.
The buffalo looked at each other.
1: Well, guess you
could say that counts as our seldom heard discouraging word.
