Axel & Smash Run-on

Materials:
rock star costumes

Characters:
Axel, Smash

Directions:
Two leaders dress up as punk rock musicians with clothes and long-haired wigs using toy guitars. When the music comes on (use hard/punk music) they come dancing through the crowds with guitars in hand until they reach the front. When they reach the front the music stops and the dialogue goes like this:

Axel: "Hi! I'm Axel!"
Smash: "And I'm Kid Smash!"
Axel/Smash: "And we're rock stars! We're in a band, and we have friends who are going to rock this house!"

At this point the music comes on again and they begin to air band to the music. Another leader starts to yell:

Leader: "Stop the music! You guys are a joke! You aren't even rock stars!"
Axel/Smash: "We aren't!?"
Leader: "And you don't have a band!"
Axel/Smash: "We don't!?"
Leader: "And you guys don't have any friends who are going to rock this house, and you won't either!"
Axel/Smash: "We won't!?"
Leader: "No! Get out of here! You guys are a bunch of phonies!"

Axel and Smash start to leave and before they reach the end of the door, they turn around and yell:

Axel/Smash: "Hey ! We'll be back!"

And then they go. We used this run-on 5 or 6 times during the beginning of year, and we set up the final act for the last club of the year where we actually got a band together and had a semi- concert/dance with songs like YMCA, Twist & Shout, Johnny B. Goode, etc. This was a great way to end the last club!

    Materials:
    rock star costumes, toy guitars

    Characters:
    Axel, Smash

    Directions:
    Two leaders dress up as punk rock musicians with clothes and long-haired wigs using toy guitars.

When they reach the front the music stops and the dialogue goes like this:

    Axel: "Hi! I'm Axel!"
    Smash: "And I'm Kid Smash!"
    Axel/Smash: "Together, we’re Rocktagious - (Then air guitar while making guitar sounds)
    Axel: “Yeah, we're rock stars! Our band is pretty awesome”
    Smash: “Yeah, we’re ready to rock this house, if you can handle it!!!!!”

    At this point the music comes on again and they begin to air band to the music. Another leader starts to yell:

    Leader: "Stop the music! Rocktagious, really?? What does that even mean?”
    Axel: “It means we’re awesome!!”
    Smash” Yeah, the rock we create is so contagious, that you just want more.”
    Axel: “Yeah, that’s why we’re rocktagious”

    Bust into more air guitar.

    Leader: Seriously, you guys are joking right? You aren't rock stars!"
    Axel: "Oh yeah, what do we look like?"
    Leader: "Some type of rock wannabees. Those are toy guitars!"
    Smash: "Who cares, we’re still saving up some money for the real ones, then we’ll be even more rocktagious!"

    More air guitar

    Leader: "You guys need to get out of here! We don’t have time for losers like you!"

    Axel and Smash start to leave and before they reach the end of the door, they turn around and yell:

    Smash: "Hey! We'll be back to rock this place!"
    Axel: “Don’t forget, I’m Axel”
    Smash: “and I’m Kid Smash”
    Axel/Smash: “Together, we’re Rocktagious!”

    Leave to more air guitar.
