Remember the Titanic Camping Skit
|This Skit is meant for older campers.|
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger campers or not.
|Preparation:||Captain, 2 favorite sailors, and 1 or more non-favorite sailors all stand onstage.|
|Script:||Captain: Well, boys, it looks like this is it. We've hit an iceberg and we're sinking fast.|
The good news is we have a lifeboat right over there. (point offstage).
The bad news is there's only room for 3 people.
I never did believe in all that Captain going down with his ship nonsense so I'm going to choose who gets to go in the lifeboat with me by asking you some questions.
Captain: Sailor #1, on what date did the Titanic sink?
Sailor #1: April 15, 1912, sir!
Captain: Correct, stand over here. (indicates behind him over towards the lifeboat)
Captain: Sailor #2, how many people died?
Sailor #1: 1523, sir!
Captain: Correct, stand over here.
Captain: Sailor #3 (and others), what were their names?
(As remaining sailors count off names like Johnson, Smith, ..., on their fingers, Captain and 2 buddies quickly sneak offstage to the lifeboat.)
