Wind Beneath My Wings Skit

Materials:
guitar, ice, 2 flashlights, 2 hair dryers

Characters:
leader, 2 pranksters

Directions:
This may be a good skit for two seniors to have some fun with you. We have used it to kick off a senior skit night as a Saturday Night Live like opening. Explain to the crowd the tradition and incredible meaning of this night, and how you and two other seniors have chosen a very serious song to kick things off that you feel will set the tone for the show.

They come and stand on either side of you very serious, and you begin to play the guitar. You all begin to sing, "It must have been cold there in my shadow" (as you finish the line they break in "You’re as cold as ice…" and throw ice down you back). You yell at them and they apologize, you reluctantly go on. "To never have sunlight on your face" (They break off into Sunshine On My Shoulders as they shine big flashlights in your eyes). You chew them out more, then go on. "You were always one step behind" (You may have them de-pants you, with some great shorts on underneath, or smack a kick me sign on your behind…pointing and singing Moon River).

Same scenario, you go on keeping your eyes on them. "You’re everything I wish I could be." You turn defensively only to have them looking innocently back at you. You go on big, "You are the wind beneath my wings!" They lift your arms and use hair dryers on you. You explode for a final time and ask them, "Why are you doing this? What do you think this is?" They look at one another and yell, "Live from , it’s Monday night!" Lights out, Saturday Night Live music on.
