House on Fire
Skit

 

Action

Leader: Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to build a house for you tonight. Scouts sit down quietly until I hive you some instructions.

Everyone does except for the two clued in scouts who be disruptive and annoying. Leader eventually makes them go back stage in frustration.

Leader: OK I need four people to be walls. two of you stand next to each other on either side with your arms out and say "Wall wall, wall wall".

Four scouts do so.

Leader: Now I need a roof so two of you come stand in between the walls on either side, arch your arms over your head and almost touch. Say "Roof roof, Roof roof."

Two scouts do so.

Leader: Now we need two windows. So Two of you stand next to the roofs and make a square with your arms saying "Window window, Window window".

Two scouts do so.

Leader: Now we need a door. one of you come up here and stand next to the window and say "Door door, Door door."

One scout does so.

Leader: Ok now for the finishing touches. Ladies and gentlemen we will be a few moments more.
I now need a table so one of you come and kneel on all fours in the middle of the house and say "Table table, Table table".

One scout does so.

Leader: Right and now last of all, we need a fire in the grate. So you come up, kneel infront of the chimney and say, "fire fire, fire fire." But do it as loud as you can - but not yet.
First i want the walls, then the roofs, then the windows, then the door, then the table, and then the fire to say theor lines okay? Lets practise without the fire because we want you to save your yell.
OK now everyone go.

Walls: Wall wall, wall wall
Roofs: Roof roof, Roof, roof
Windows: Window window, window window.
Door: Door Door, door door
Table: Table table, table table.

Ok thats good now leets do the final run through. Fire you ready to scream? yes? good.
