Stupid Skits

Junior Class Play

You will need four people for the doctor, director, mother and child.

    Mother: (enters sweeping the floor)
    Son: (comes in the room holding his stomach) Mother, IÕve been shot.
    Mother: Oh, my son!
    Son: I think I will die mother.
    Mother: Oh, son you must not do that. I will call the doctor. (She picks up the phone.) Doctor, doctor do come quickly, my son has been shot and is dying!
    Doctor: (He enters immediately as mother hangs up the phone.)
    Mother: Where have you been, this is an emergency?
    Doctor: I had an emergency appendectomy after you called, but I got here as soon as I could.
    Son: I feel sick.
    Mother: You look sick.
    Doctor: You ARE SICK.
    Son: I think I will die.
    Mother: You must not die.
    Doctor: He is dead.
    Director: Cut, cut, cutÉ

First time: Have all the actors read the script with no feeling or emotion. Then the director stops the scene and says there must be more emotion.
Second time: Do it with wild emotion; itÕs the saddest thing ever doneÉweeping and wailing, with very pronounced actions. The director stops again, saying that that was a little too much sadness, this time make it a little lighter.
Third time: It is now very, very funny. Laugh until it hurts.
You can add other variations, such as Shakespearean, as hippies, as a musical, etc.

    I work at a community theater. We use it all the time for theater games. The kids love it! They love overacting!
