The Sound Sleeper
Skit

 

Action

Begining: Scouts asleep; snoring


Bell rings, P.L. shouts "wake up or miss breakfast!"


Scouts: Wake up, yawn, get up; hurry off stage excitedly


Unwakeable: lies there, snoring


Patrol Leader: Walks onto stage, says "Come on Jeremy, wake up!" in hasty voice


Unwakeable: snores


PT: "Come on, Come on, Come on. Come On! Come on" in a taunting, chanting voice.


U: snores


PT: "Come On!!!!!" in irritated, angry tone.


U: grunts a snore; resumes snoring.


PT: Pulls out whistle, blows into whistle


U: Snores


PT: Storms off stage, frustrated.

Returns with drum and drum mallet
Begins Druming and chanting "Wake up, wake up, wake up!"
Since nothing happens, puts drum on ground near head (not too close) and drums a certian rythm

U: snores to this rythm


PT: Goes off stage again, returns with plate and fork.

Scapes fork against plate, making a hideous noise.

U: Snores


PT: Grunts and says "I give up! Sleep you slug!!!"
Lays plate and fork on table, fork on edge of table so that it is about to fall off.


U: When fork does fall off, snoring becomes very disturbed and the unwakeable suddenly sits up. "Wha, wha, wha, what happened?"


PT: spins around, stares at U unbeleivably, slaps his hand against his forehead, screams ("Agggghrrrr!"), and falls down.
