These short skits with casts of two to six players cover a wide variety of topics and drama styles. Some skits are comic for learning comedy technique. Others are situations for students to learn more about themselves and others. The dialogue is crisp and easy to perform. Very little planning and memorization is required to stage these skits. Many may be staged readers theatre style. They work well in a classroom and they may also be used in a theatrical setting. Sample titles include: Funny Isn't Always Funny, Gossip among Friends, The Principal's Office, The Band and Party Girls. They can be staged and directed by the students themselves. Excellent for competition or comedy revue shows.
