short skit for 3 people

DUELING CHEFS – SHORT SKIT FOR 3 PEOPLE

Once upon a time, two chefs started a cooking show together. Fast forward to now.  Time has passed and things have, well, soured a bit.  One is definitely more famous than the other. One is the better chef. One looks better on TV. Period. It’s actually a matter of opinion who is. But they both think they are. And tonight on live television, things are about to get nasty in this short skit for 3 people.

Duelling Chefs has been written twice – one for an all female and one for an all male cast, depending on who is available.

THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE – SOUTH AFRICAN PLAY FOR SCHOOLS

All the girls at the local girl’s high school are excited to see who’ll be the next head girl and who’ll be a prefect.  There’s the girl who thinks it should be her. Obviously. And the girl who has recently turned over a new leaf and desperately wants to be elected but who has a troubled past. And then there’s the matter of race.  Some girls feel that because last year’s head girl was white, a girl of colour should get the vote this year.    Voting for the head girl starts today and it’s going to be tricky in this South African play for schools…

“Imagine if everyone voted objectively; not because they have a grudge, or because of skin colour, or something that happened in the past. But, instead, they all vote because of the good that the girl could do. They vote for the person who shows the most honesty, integrity, fairness and impartiality. Can you imagine? Then the teachers couldn’t ignore us, because we made a good, solid choice together. That would be cool.”

The pupils all vote for the girl they think are the best choice, but in the end, do the teachers get a say?

fantasy play script

REGICIDE – FANTASY PLAY SCRIPT ABOUT REVOLUTION. AND MURDER

There are those who hate the King and Queen. They have their reasons. Mainly, the violence, bloodshed, murder and oppression they have lived with under the monarchs rule. ‘’Those’’ like Zanna and Lucien, belong to a brotherhood that seeks to destroy the King and Queen once and for all. In Regicide, a play in three acts, their lives revolve around their resolve to bring power back to the people, their respect for the authorities who will carry out the order for the final blow and the sweet revolution of retribution that will follow the simple task that must be done quickly and quietly – kill the King and Queen’s new born son in this fantasy play script.

The logic, according to Zanna and Lucien’s Commander (Jacob) is that without an heir, the wretched kingdom will surely collapse and so Lucien and Zanna must ensure that the threat is completely annihilated. ‘’The Threat’’, merely a day or two old, who has done nothing but exist thus far, who understands nothing’ and is as harmless as can be, must be killed and it is Lucien who has volunteered to do it. But can he? … Could you?

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING – CHRISTIAN PLAY FOR HIGH SCHOOL

In this Christian play for high school, a teacher sets the students a task – for each of them to get up and say what are the things most important to them, and what are they personally going to do to see to it that those things show up in their lives?

But the student who gets up at the end has the one answer that encompasses all of those things.

IN TENTS – ONE ACT PLAY ABOUT BULLYING

It’s your typical high school camping trip, except not so typical. Forced to come up with an alternative trip due to budget cuts (little Jimmy only got a B in Lit and his daddy sued the school), our home room teacher has come up with a plan. Camping out in the cellar. Six students are chosen and put together for this assignment. Six students who have nothing to do with each other and who will have to get to know each other over the course of an evening. The students are free to leave at any time, but if they do, they fail the class. All they have is a tent (in a bag), a microwave, some microwave meals and some jars (for the necessary). How will they survive the night?

SNOW GOOD – SNOW WHITE THE PANTOMIME

Snow Good a.k.a. Snow White The Pantomime carries a warning –  It is considered dangerous for wearers of spectacles  to attend as it’s so funny it will cause their spectacles to mist up from laughing so hard.  Spectacle cleaning cloths and extra tissues should, therefore, should be carried at every performance. Do not drive or use machinery until the spectacles have been demisted.

An hysterically funny retelling of the Snow White and the seven dwarfs fairy tale as rendered by the Goons, kicked around by Monty Python and crash landed by the Airplane I and II writers and built on this foundation a really twisted tale of jealousy, passion, sausages, stupidity and innocence brilliantly scripted by Keith Passmore.
Grandparents will role in the aisles, parents will go “ooo!” at the verbal and visual puns (of which there are many) and children will be enthralled and everyone will cheer at the end when Good, (“ooo!”) triumphs and the evil Queen is vanquished and later strangled by the Director for changing her lines, (off stage, of course.)

THE WAY OUT – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT ESCAPING FROM THE LOONY BIN

It could not get any worse. Not only was Steve committed to a sanatorium against his will and (cough) better judgement, he’d lost custody of his only daughter and his conniving wife Genia was
dead set on taking his fortune for herself. It seemed the odds were truly against him as the judge who had him committed (and re-committed) was less reasonable than most, the doctors and
therapists at the coo-coo place seemed hard of hearing and his own sanity was living on a prayer. It was clear to Steve; he would almost certainly rot in Westview Residence unless he did something…
and soon… and drastic! His only option: to put his faith in his fellow ‘prisoners’, create a flawless escape plan and hope the sun shone brightly on the ‘crazy ones’ at Westview.

And Steve’s worst nightmare became his wildest dream in this comedy about escaping from the loony bin!
