Lighthouse Stairs Skit
A man lives in a lighthouse. For some unexplained reason, only the stairs are used and not the elevator.
Start with one scout onstage. He looks at his wristwatch.
Keeper: Oops, time to check the light.
He walks around and around and around the clockwise acting like he is climbing a circular staircase to the top of the lighthouse.
After 3 or 4 or 12 circles (depending on the actor), he pauses and listens.
Keeper: Oh no! The phone!
He runs around and around the opposite direction the same number of times and picks up the phone.
Keeper: Hello? Hello? Rats, they hung up!
He returns to climbing the stairs. Partway up, he hears the phone again, runs down, and answers it.
Keeper: Hello? Oh hi, Johnny. Sure, bring your cousin from Nebraska that has never seen a lighthouse over, I'll give him a tour. Bye.
Keeper: I'm sure I have enough time to go check that light before Johnny gets here.
He starts running around up the stairs.
Two scouts come onstage and pretend to knock on the door. The lighthouse keeper stops, and runs around the other direction down to greet them.
Keeper: Hi, guys! The view from the top is great! I'm just heading up there to check the light, so let's go!
They walk around up to the top.
The cousin from Nebraska should get more and more tired with each circle they climb.
Keeper: There it is! Look at that ocean!
Just then, the cousin collapses.
Keeper: Oh No! Johnny, go call 911!
Johnny runs around and around, then stops, turns around and runs around and around back up.
Johnny: I forgot the number!
Johnny runs back down and calls. He then runs back up.
4th scout comes onstage and knocks on the door. Johnny runs down to get him.
They run back up.
Doctor: This looks bad. He needs to get to the hospital!
Keeper and Johnny pick up cousin and try to carry him down the stairs.
Johnny: Oh no, the stairwell is too tight, we can't carry him down.
Keeper: (reaching to the side and presing a button) No problem, we'll take the elevator.
