Performance Art

Short sketches to amuse or entertain

Issue 1

"A campfire with skits is like a day without sunshine" to paraphrase a saying that has been attributed to at least a dozen individuals. Skits are marvellous activities. They teach the scouts to listen and to concentrate. If they're performing they give them confidence. Even the shyest of individuals can be encouraged to perform a skit where they have a small speaking part or they can be given literally just a few words to say. Here's one of the shortest that we like:


For two people

One: Come in boat 99, your time is up!

Two: Er, boss, we don't have a boat 99.

One: Are you in trouble boat 66?
