Can't Work in the Dark Skit
4 or more scouts
All scouts are center stage digging with shovels, raking, whatever manual labor they want.
One scout just stands there with his arm raised straight as if he were holding a torch in his hand.
(Boss walks onstage to survey the work being done. He sees the one guy not working and walks up to him.)
Boss: I'm paying you to work, not to just stand around. Why aren't you working?
Scout #1: I'm a lightbulb!
Boss: Get to work! When I come back, if you aren't working, you're fired!
(boss leaves and everyone continues to do the same things. Then, boss returns and sees scout still not working.)
Boss: That's it! You're fired! Get out!
(scout drops his arm and dejectedly exits stage. As soon as he drops his arm, the rest look around, stop working, and start to leave.)
Boss: Hey, why are you guys leaving? Get back to work!
Scout #2: How? We can't work in the dark!
