Royalty-free skits for kids and teens. Use this collection of short, funny skits in class with your students, or in a school performance. 2 person skits, and whole group skits!

Here are over fifty royalty-free classic skits for students! They are a form of American folklore, in that since the turn of the century, students have been gathering at camps, scout groups, church groups, and in their backyards to come up with them and act them out. Skits can offer a creative way to put on a show, without having to stage a full-scale production. Many of the skits are written so that much of the action can be improvised, or lines ad-libbed, leaving room for individual creativity! The skits are organized by simplicity and number of characters for easy printing. Many of the skits can also be adapted to a larger or smaller cast.

Sample Skit:

Parachute

Scene: Sporting goods store
Cast: Clerk, Customer
Optional Prop: Knapsack rigged up with three cords dangling from it (parachute)

The customer walks up to the counter and asks for their best parachute.

Clerk: Well, we have a pretty big variety, but this is probably our best one. (Hands it to customer.)
Customer: What makes this one the best?
Clerk: Well, see here, this is the rip cord.
Customer: Yeah?
Clerk: When you pull that, the parachute opens.
Customer: What’s this other cord?
Clerk: That’s the reserve chute, in case the first one doesn’t open, you have a back-up.
Customer: What’s the third cord for?
Clerk: That’s the reserve, reserve chute. The back-up to the back-up.
Customer: But what if all three of them don’t open?
Clerk: Bring it back and we’ll give you a full refund.
