Tips for Great Skits & Songs:
- Keep them short – never longer than 3 to 5 minutes so that they can be easily memorized.
- Homemade skits or songs may seem funny to the writers but often are not funny to the audience.
- Use cue cards and scripts if you need to. Rehearse until everyone is comfortable and has memorized their parts.
- Everyone has to speak or sing loudly and clearly.
- Avoid gross, vulgar, or un-Scout-Like topics or content.
- Many old topics should never be used today. Ever.
- Fat, ugly, ethnic, handicapped, or gay jokes, songs, or skits have no place in Scouting.
- A “volunteer” is never chosen at random from the audience. The “volunteer” is pre-selected person, a “shill” or “plant.”
- Have a Master of Ceremonies to keep skits and songs moving.
- Keep your program fast paced and get everyone involved!
