Scouting: Skits p18

Up Harold: Mad Scientist and a monster named Harold. The mad scientist
talks about his greatest creation Harold. The scientist asks for a
volunteer out of the audience. The mad scientist tells Harold to rise
up, walk forward, and then the monster gets near the volunteer to kill
him. Harold grabs the volunteer and kills him and returns back behind
the scientist. The mad scientist goes on about how great his monster is,
repeating his commands for Harold to stand up, move forward and kill.
What the mad scientist doesn't realize is that Harold is reacting to his
commands. The mad scientist continues to gloat as Harold comes forward
and kills him. Harold continues walking toward the audience as the stage
blacks out.

Upside Down Singers: The singers are on stage. An announcer explains
that they are going to sing upside down! They duck out of sight behind a
curtain (a sheet held by two accomplices will do). Placing their hands
in their shoes, they wobble the shoes above the curtain top looking as
they are having trouble standing on their heads and are about to topple
over while singing. They requires practice and the assistance of someone
to direct them. To end the skit let one of the curtain holders become
distracted and accidently drop the curtain revealing the "upside down
singers" in action."

Vampire Snack

Scene: One vampire, standing onstage, takes a can marked "blood", pours
tomato juice from it into a glass and drinks it. The second
vampire enters.

Vampire #1: Mmm. Delicious. Vould you like some?
Vampire #2: no, thanks. I couldn't drink another bite.
Vampire #1: So vat's new.
Vampire #2: Nothing much. I just saw a poor old bum begging on the
street corner.
Vampire #1: You did. Vat did he say?
Vampire #2 He vanted me to help him. He said he hadn't had a bite in
Vampire #1: So what did you do?
Vampire #2: Vat else? Naturally, I bit him!

The Viper is Coming: An office setting with a boss and an assistant who
runs in and tells the boss that his just received a message that the
Viper is coming. The boss get's very agitated and upset repeating the
assistant's message. Several others come in repeating the same message.
They are all in a state of panic when the last person comes on stage
with a squeegee and a sponge announcing, "I'm the vindov viper. I've
come to clean your vindovs. Vhere do I start."

Washington's Farewell: It is announced that a member of the troop has
memorized Washington's Farewell Address and is about to do a dramatic
portrayal of it. A boy emerges dressed as Washington and delivers his
farewell address, "Bye Mom!"
