Letters from Home
Posted On: 2009-01-23
Props: Two sheets of paper.
Scott: (Enters) Gee, it's always nice to get a letter from home when you're at camp.
Robin: (Enters) Hey, look, I got a letter from my Mom.
Scott: Me too. Listen, my Mom says she's writing this letter slowly, because she knows I can't read fast.
Robin: Mine says I won't know the house when I come home.. They've moved !
Scott: Oh, my Dad has a new job with 500 men under him. He's cutting the grass at the cemetery.
Robin: Our neighbors started keeping pigs. Mom got wind of it this morning.
Scott: Oh, my goodness. My little brother came home from school crying because all the other boys had new clothes and we can't afford any for him. Mom says she got him a new hat and lets him stand in the window.
Robin: There was a washing machine in the new house. But my Mom put four shirts in it, pulled the handle and they disappeared. Guess it doesn't work right.
Scott: My Mom had her appendix out and a dishwasher put in. And, oh, my sister had a baby this morning. Mom doesn't know if I'm an Aunt or and Uncle, because she doesn't know yet if it's a boy or a girl.
Robin: Oh, dear, there's a P.S. It says, I was going to send you $ 10.00, but I had already sealed the envelope.
Scott: Well, it's nice to know things are normal at home.
Robin: Yep. (Both exit)
(With this skit it is possible to put each boy's script on a sheet of paper, and they can read it out, as though they were reading the letter. They should rehearse, of course, to make it sound natural.)
