Short Cuts Comedy Sketch Collection

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: M or W, 2 to 3 each skit, up to 13 players
Time: Varies, 4 to 7 minutes each

Live actors become puppet dummies in these hilarious sketches. By cutting some old suits, putting gloves on the sleeves and shoes on their hands, performers appear 1/4 normal size. A funny sight! A ventriloquist completes the illusion by grasping the backs of their necks. Lots of laughs when they’re “lifted up” with their feet kicking. Each skit is a great vaudeville act. The dialog is sharp, crisp and thoroughly delightful. Includes: 1. “Short” on Smarts — Dummy makes ventriloquist look dumb. 2. Money Talk — Ventriloquist is chided for being cheap. 3. Singing Harmony — Two dummies argue over who sings best. 4. The Science Lesson — Ventriloquist tries to teach, but dummies have all the answers. 5. The Gambler — Ventriloquist gets a psychiatrist for gambling dummy.
