SKITS                                                                

 

This works well as part of an organized meeting. This skit should not be announced.

Need: 4 boys with 4 chairs

Four or more people sneak up behind the speaker and set chairs down so that "the speaker can't see them."  They then begin to go through the motions of casting a line and reeling it in.  After a while the audience is watching what the group is doing and then the "speaker" looks over and asks, "What are you doing?"

"We're fishing!" is the reply of the fishermen, after which they go back to their motions and the speaker resumes talking. After a short time the speaker looks over and says  "But you can't fish here!"

"Why not?" asks another fisherman.

"Because there's no water here!" (speaker)

"Oh, well, they weren't biting anyway!" (fisherman)

The fishermen then turn their chairs so that they are lined up in a single line, facing in the same direction.  They go

through the motions of putting their gear away, and then, acting as if they are rowing a boat, slide their chairs backwards across the stage."

Comments: It worked well in a gymnasium and at the hall where we showed it to the leaders at roundtable. Perhaps the fishermen could sit on plastic garbage bags, or pieces of plastic sheet such as that which is used for ground cloths and simply scoot across the ground when it is time to "row" away.

Also, the speaker could be starting what looks like the introduction to another skit when the fishermen interrupt his narration.
