Directions for Traditions Skit:
- Read the script from beginning to end to see where each participant will be seating or when they arrive in the skit. (it is in the script)- The instructions are in the front, the story is the rest…
- Before copying the script, you may wish to proof-read it through; there are some errors of punctuation, spelling and such. It is pretty ‘dated’ and some roles are gender-specific. Feel free to update any names, location, so long as the ‘message’ comes across.
- The committee has made 8 copies of the skit, which is about 16 pages long (the skit contains six characters, plus the narrator)
- We have highlighted each script with a different character’s part that differentiates each script for the specific character. So, if the committee brings the skit to your group we will bring 7 copies of the script; 1 for each character, and 1 for the narrator. (The 8th copy is a master copy).
- The person responsible for the production of the skit with their group generally reads the part of the narrator. And, they will pick out 6 people from the group. Just hand each of them a script for a specific character. (we guit trying to figure who ought to play who; we let God figure it out). Just have that person read the highlighted parts. Everyone (characters) ought to follow along closely so as not to miss their cues. Its simple stuff; for fun & for free.
- We were taught not to take ourselves so seriously, that we are not a glum-lot, that you can catch more flies with honey rather than vinegar, and humor is an effective teacher. Have fun with it. It’s a PLAY.
If you or your group would like more information about the skit or having the traditions committee come to your group to help present it please email the traditions chair.
