The Jogger
Skit

 

Action

Narrator picks 5 volunteers from audience.

Three volunteers stand center stage and act as trees, one stands off stage and is a lumberjack, and the final volunteer is a jogger who runs around the three trees. The jogger runs constantly throughout the skit.

Narrator: Once upon a time there was a jogger, and every morning he would go outside and run through the woods. One day while he was out for his morning jog, a lumberjack came into the forest and cut down one of the trees, and hauled it off for firewood.

Lumberjack comes in from off stage and pretends to cut down one of the trees then drags it off stage.

Narrator: But this didn't stop the jogger, he just kept running through the woods, because jogging is what he likes to do. But the very next day, the lumberjack came back and cut down another tree, and hauled it off for firewood.

Lumberjack comes in from off stage and pretends to cut down another one of the trees then drags it off stage.

Narrator: This still didn't stop the jogger. He ran through what was left of the forest like it didn't even matter. But the very next day the lumberjack came back and cut down the last tree in the forest and hauled it off for firewood.

Lumberjack comes in from off stage and pretends to cut down the last of the trees then drags it off stage.

Narrator: But this didn't stop the faithful jogger. He just ran through the stumps where the trees once stood. Now you may think that the jogger would stop, because all of his beloved trees were gone, but there is a moral to this story. Even though a lumberjack can come into a forest and cut down all the trees, THE SAP KEEPS RUNNING!
