The Lighthouse
Skit

 

Action

This is a great skit for those times when you need a good skit, but no one has had any time to practice. Only the narrator needs to know the story.

NARRATOR: This is the lighthouse skit. First, I’m going to need someone to be my lighthouse. I promise, nothing bad will happen to you.

Narrator gives a flashlight to the volunteer. Volunteer stands in the middle of the stage and rotates the flashlight above his head to imitate a lighthouse. He should do this continuously throughout the whole skit.

NARRATOR (walking back and forth in front of the lighthouse): OK, here I am at the top of my lighthouse. I love it up here. The view, the salt air, the majestic sunsets (and so on).
NARRATOR (Acts shocked and points at an imaginary dead guy on the ground in front of the lighthouse): Whoa, there’s a guy laying down here. He’s not moving. Oh my gosh, there’s a dead guy in my lighthouse!!! What do I do, what do I do? Em, doctor, I’ll get a doctor!

NARRATOR (runs around the lighthouse twice): (nervously) Gotta go down the stairs of the lighthouse. Quick!

NARRATOR (suddenly stops at an imaginary window in the middle of the lighthouse, acts calm and inspired): hey look at that view! I just think it’s so pretty from up here. (Nervous again) Wait, dead guy!

NARRATOR: (rushes around the lighthouse two more times) Doctor, I need a doctor! (picks out a volunteer) Doctor, doctor, I think there’s a dead guy in the lighthouse! Come on!

Narrator and doctor run around the lighthouse twice (in the opposite direction narrator came down), then the narrator stops suddenly and point out the window.

NARRATOR (calmly and inspired): hey, have you ever seen such a beautiful view? (etc. doctor and narrator can ham it up for a moment). Wait, dead guy! (they rush around twice more).

NARRATOR: Doctor, look, there’s the dead guy!

Narrator instructs “doctor” to look at dead guy, then say “yep, he’s dead.”

DOCTOR: “yep, he’s dead”

NARRATOR: What do we do, what do we do? Let’s get the police!

They run around the lighthouse together, stop to admire the view, run around again and pick up a policeman. The three go back up, admire the view, and then go to the top.

NARRATOR: Policeman, look, there’s the dead guy!

Narrator instructs “policeman” to look at dead guy, then say “yep, he’s dead.”

POLICEMAN: “yep, he’s dead”

NARRATOR: What do we do, what do we do? Let’s get a coroner!

Repeat the procedure. Everybody runs around the lighthouse (don’t let anyone stay at the top). Coroner says he needs two guys with a stretcher to carry out the body. Repeat the procedure to get the stretcher guys.

NARRATOR: Stretcher guys, there’s the dead guy. Can you get him up on your stretcher?

Stretcher guys pretend to lift a body onto an imaginary stretcher.

Narrator instructs the stretcher guys to pretend the stretcher won’t fit into stairwell.

NARRATOR: Ok everybody, lets go!

STRETCHER GUYS: Hey, the stretcher won’t fit into the stairway!

NARRATOR: What, the stretcher won’t fit into the stairway? I guess we’ll just have to take the elevator!
