The Skit Book: 101 Skits from Kids

Etukansi
august house, 2006 - 147 sivua
Jump in, take the script, move it along, and have a good time. Here are 101 of the best skits ever. They have been made up by kids, performed by kids, and passed along by word of mouth at camp, Scout meetings, rec programs, and anywhere else that kids get together. All the essentials are here: title, setting, characters, story, and punch line, as well as suggested dialogue, costumes, and props. Just add a little imagination and some hammy stage instincts; the fun here is improvisational. Viewing skits as an aspect of folklore - this is more a general resource than an actual book of scripts. A list of characters, an outline of the action, and suggested dialogue or improvisations for each is given rather than the formal scripts, stage directions, and production notes found in other collections. Props and scenery are kept to a minimum, and in keeping with the oral tradition, flexibility in length and numbers of actors, as well as variations on the action are indicated. The material, submitted by camps, schools, and youth groups, should appeal to the young and the young-at-heart. Pen-and-ink drawings are a delightful accompaniment to the text.
