Walk On: The ants go marching

 

Walk On: The ants go marching

Equipment

About 5 Boys, no equipment required, but hiking gear would be appropriate. Good for Patrol during Jamboree Campfire.

Preparation

Practice marching, Make sure the EmCee does NOT announce you, only identify you AFTER the third walk on. Line up by height, smallest guy last, leader in front leading the singing. Time the marching so one verse lasts all the way across the stage/camp fire area.

Action

At irregular intervals between skits, when there is ALWAYS dead time, the group marches across the stage/camp fire area singing the appropriate verse of "The Ants Go Marching...".  
1st time: The Ants go marching one by one, hurrah, ... ,  
The Ants go marching one by one, the little one stops to  
shoot his gun (smallest guy in group pretends to shoot at  
the audience), and they all ...  
2nd time: The Ants go marching two by two, hurrah, ... ,  
The Ants go marching two by two, the little one stops to  
tie his shoe (smallest guy in group pretends to tie his  
shoe), and they all ...  
3rd time: The Ants go marching three by three, hurrah, ...  
The Ants go marching three by three, the little one stops  
to (smallest guy stops and pretends to be unzipping his  
trousers) - Leader shouts: HEY!!!! NO, WAIT, STOP!!!!  
It's "Climb a Tree, CLIMB A TREE!!!!"  
All scramble off, leaving the smallest guy alone in front  
of the audience, zipping up and looking sheepish.  
Master of Ceremonies should now introduce performers.
