comedy sketch for ten actors


It’s the annual planetary meeting and the planets are awaiting the arrival of Pluto, the ninth planet. Or at least until last week. Now Pluto has been reclassified and it’s their job to let him know that from this day forward Pluto will no longer be considered a real planet, merely a dwarf planet in this comedy sketch for ten actors.

Picture it: A cafe and a typical couple sitting at a table waiting to be served. A beleaguered and bored waitress who wants to take their order. Sounds pretty normal, right? Well – she’s  (the female half of the couple) just been to improv theater class and the cafe is about to become her new stage, much to the astonishment of the other diners, the embarrassment of her partner and the confusion of the waitress in this ten minute comedy.
