|This Skit is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
|Preparation:||Largest scout stands center stage with arms raised like a tree.|
|Script:||Scout enters stage, pretending to drive a car real fast. He swerves around, drives over a cliff, falling, falling, ... and then jumps onto the tree and hangs on tight.|
Scout : Oh no, my car is totalled 500 feet down there in that canyon. I was sure lucky this tree was growing out of the side of the cliff. The road isn't too far up there. But, there's no way I can climb that cliff.
Scout : Man, my arms are getting tired. (squirm on the tree)
Scout : Help! Heeeelp! Is anyone up there?
Scout : Help! Heeeelp! Is anyone up there? My arms are killing me. (squirm around on the tree)
Deep Offstage Voice: I am here. I am God and I will help you.
Scout : Cool! What are you going to do? I can't hold on much longer.
God: Let go of the tree.
Scout : What?!? I'll fall 500 feet and splatter all over the rocks.
God: Do you believe in me?
Scout : Well, sure.
God: Then you have nothing to fear. Let go of the tree and I will save you.
Scout : Is anyone ELSE up there?
