WHEN SANTA GOT CAUGHT – 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….

NO-THANKS-GIVING – SKIT ABOUT THANKSGIVING

It’s Thanksgiving. That same wonderful Holiday that comes round every year when all the family get together, and lovingly give thanks for all their blessings and eat some succulent melt-in-the-mouth turkey, tenderly made by mom. Well, that’s what they’d like you to think, wouldn’t they?  What’s the reality? Grandma is in tears, the kids are rolling their eyes and playing on their phones, mom’s ever so dry turkey just won’t go down even after that fiftieth chew and half the family is M.I.A. in this skit about Thanksgiving for nine people.

MY LITTLE MERMAID – SKIT ON THE LITTLE MERMAID

In this skit on The Little mermaid, Arial, our little mermaid (Not to be confused with the font) has her eye set on Prince Error (an unfortunate name that he couldn’t really help) who is a human. The only way she can get married to him and have lots of little merchildren is to become human. Since she is just sixteen, she just doesn’t have a checking account or even a credit card so she gives the evil sea queen, ”Umbrella” her voice as payment.

But the story ends well – she gets her voice back. Although she kind of sounds like Pinky Pie, nobody minds, really. As long as she doesn’t sing. Ever!! And they live happily ever after.
