Shakespearean Play   Shakespearean Play Skit   Scout Skit

This Skit is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
Required:
2 scouts, broomstick or branch, large pot, smaller pot, neckerchief, 3 chairs (optional)
Preparation:
Line 3 chairs up beside each other. Place the neckerchief on the left-most one, then small pot, then large pot. Lean broomstick or branch against right-most chair.
Notes:
This takes quite a bit of rehearsal, but can be hilariously funny. The 2 scouts get worn out playing 5 parts. Using extreme voices makes the play.
Script:
(#1 picks up broom stick and stands to right of chair. #2 is offstage to the right.)

#1: For this evening's entertainment, we offer you this cultural classic, currently captivating crowds across the country at finer dinner theaters and thespian gatherings.
Without further ado, we bring you, "The Marriage of the Princess". Please enjoy.

(#2 enters, riding a horse, and gallups up to the door.)
#2: Clippity-Clop. Clippity-Clop. Clippity-Clop. Whoa.
#2: Knock, Knock, Knock.
#1: (as doorman) Yes, may I help you?
#2: I want to marry the princess!
#1: I'll have to ask the King.
(#1 slowly turns around while #2 runs behind him, sits down, and puts the large pot on his head. He is now the King.)

#1: King?
#2: Yes?
#1: There is a man at the door who wants to marry your daughter, the princess.
#2: Oh, I'll have to ask my wife, the Queen, now won't I?
(slowly turns as #1 drops his staff, sits down, and puts on the small pot. He is now the Queen and should use an appropriate voice.)

#2: Queen?
#1: Yes, what is it?
#2: There is a man at the door who wants to marry our daughter, the princess.
#1: Well, we must ask her then, mustn't we?
(turns as #2 sits in last chair and puts kerchief over head. He is the Princess.)

#1: Princess?
#2: Yes, mother?
#1: There is a man at the door who wishes to marry you.
#2: Hmmm, tell him, No Thank You.
#1: I see.
(#2 becomes King.)

#1: She says 'No Thank You'.
#2: I see.
(#1 becomes doorman)

#2: She says 'No Thank You'.
#1: I see.
(#2 becomes knight)

#1: She says 'No Thank You'.
#2: Darn!
#2: Clippity-Clop. Clippity-Clop. Clippity-Clop. (exits stage)

#1: (to audience) A few days later...

(#2 enters, riding a horse, and gallups up to the door.)
#2: Clippity-Clop. Clippity-Clop. Clippity-Clop. Whoa.
