When Santa got caught – skit for the holidays

skit for the holidays


When Santa is caught red-handed breaking into someone’s house, the police are called and he is arrested. Poor Santa! His life is going down the toilet. He has developed a gluten intolerance, so all the cookies left out for him can’t be touched, leaving him starving. Even his own wife, the lovely Mrs Claus wants to send him down the river. So much so, that Santa decides once and for all to give up the red suit. Perhaps to swap it for an orange one in this skit for the holidays….

Little Red Walking Hood – little red riding hood skit

little red riding hood skit


In this skit on the traditional fairy tale, “Little Red Riding Hood,” Little Red is forced by her mother to take goodies to granny’s house, even though her mother is very well aware of the nasty vicious wolf lurking in the forest between them. This smacks of child abuse to Little Red, but, hey, off she goes, encounters the wolf, naturally. It turns out that the wolf wants her to pay him to escort her through the dangerous woods, but since he doesn’t take visa, they part ways. Until granny’s house…

Note: This little red riding hood skit is two pages long.
