"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." --Eleanor Roosevelt   This skit is about how famous African Americans overcame the age-old addage "You can't," and turned their dreams into realities.

Because of the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr., it paved the way for the Michael Jackson's, Whitney Houston's and Mae Jemison's (first black woman in space) of the world.  Without dreams, there is no hope.  Using the lives of those mentioned previously, this skit shows how the dreams of each individual came true and the impact they had on our world today, as well as challenges the audience to dream their own dreams and see them through to fruition.

April 4, 1968 was a tragic and historic day in our history, marking the end of Martin Luther King Jr's life.  Told through the eyes of the witnesses who were there on the day he died, this skit depicts the humanity of one of our country's greatest leaders. Plagued with death threats, bomb scares and even a physical stabbing, Dr. King often contemplated giving up his dream for a more "normal" life.  He even predicted he would not live to see his 40th birthday. See what took place on that fateful day in Memphis as told by the men who were there to witness it: Jesse Jackson, Billy Kyles, Ralph Abernathy, James  Bevel, Andrew Young, and James Orange.  Then see how Dr. King's dream lives on in each of us, and why Rev. Billy Kyles believes God put him there to witness such a tragic event.

Use Me Up - Drama

$10.00

"When Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to unwed parents in a samll town in Mississippi, the world didn't take much notice.  No one could have predicted that a small, poor, black girl would grow up to be one of the richest, most powerful and influential women in history." 

And so begins this skit, a tribute to Oprah Winfrey and the contributions to the world she has had made throughout her lifetime.  This skit takes you through 3 "scenes" in Oprah's life.  The first is when Oprah was 6 years old,  preparing to "preach" in her Grandma's church.  Though life on the farm with her Grandma was primitive, (there was no running water or electricity) Little Oprah was happy, reading and reciting poetry and scriptures.  But her world is about to change, as she finds out when a teenage version of herself shows up to "warn" her about events to come. It seems that in "not so distant years," events will change Oprah's happy childhood into one filled with hurt, anger and rebellion.  "But," says Teen Oprah, "the darkenss won't last forever, and you will survive.  Just remember, God is watching over you." The scene then changes to an angry teenage Oprah who wonders how God could allow such atrocities to happen to her.  Just as she is shouting her wrath at God for abandoning her, an adult version of Oprah in her 50's appears to tell her not to give up, and that help is on the way--her life is about to change once more.  Adult Oprah shares just a hint of what is on the way for this teen girl, giving her enough courage to face another day:  "One day the sun will shine on you so brightly, you will feel its warmth with you wherever you go."  The scene changes one last time, as Adult Oprah now comes face to face with the elderly version of herself at age 92.  Just when Oprah thinks she has finally been "used up," she is informed that even at age 92, there is still work to be done. 

By Oprah's own admission, she prayed a prayer at one time in her life:  "God, use me until I'm all used up."  This skit emphasizes that theme, and in the end, based on the successes and accomplishments Oprah as achieved, ponders the idea, "What would happen in our own lives, and in our world, if we ALL prayed such a prayer?"

Earl and Denise are having issues in their marriage so they seek the advice of the only person who can help them: a mechanic.  According to Denise, they've sought the help of a marriage counselor but since Earl only understands car lingo, the counselor wasn't much help.  Hence, the visit to the mechanic.  Earl claims his "car" sputters and jerks and won't move forward, and Denise claims that maybe the "car" wouldn't do that if Earl knew how to properly rev up the engine!  After the confused and befuddled mechanic realizes Earl is talking about his wife and not his car, things begin to make more sense.  Earl want to know if the mechanic can give the wife a major overhaul or if he should trade her in for a new model. The mechanic nicely reminds Earl that he is dealing with a classic car and that with all classic cars, they need a little tender loving care.  This skit is a humorous reminder that all marriages can use a tune-up every now and then and that sometimes we need to listen to the "engine" to find out how it's running.

Light My Fire - Comedy

$10.00

When two couples set out for a night of romance in order to rekindle the fires of their marriage, they end up with two very different evenings and two very unhappy people.  Kathy has spent all day preparing for a night of romance with her husband, John, who thinks "rekindling the fires" means heading to the bedroom.  In reality, it meant she'd prepared a game that included acting out various activities like washing each other's hair, reading poetry and slow dancing. While Kathy is in heaven, John is in agony.  Rob's fate isn't much better, or so he thinks.  His wife, Dena, has arranged for them to attend a marriage seminar based on a recommendation from a man at a local bookstore.  Rob doesn't want to go but gives in to please his wife, who says it will be good for their marriage. Once they arrive, the tables are turned, however, when the Speaker announces that in order to rekindle the flames of love it's necessary to be intimate on a daily basis, prepare gourmet meals for your husband, and be sure to keep the kids busy so as to allow him a refreshing daily nap. Suddenly, Rob has found a new hero and Dena can't wait to "kill" the clerk at the bookstore.  In the end, both couples discover that while their definition of "romance" may differ, rekindling the fires of their marriage might be easier than they originally thought.

Eventually the couple begins to see things the pastor's way not realizing the pastor is hiding a small secret of his own.

Love Me Tender - Comedy

$10.00

Based on Gary Chapman's book "The Five Love Languages," this skit explores the idea that each person has different needs that must be met in their relationships.  As the skit opens we find two couples who have not been relating to each other very well.  One man seeks affirming words from his derogatory wife, while another husband yearns to be close to his wife who often feels overwhelmed by her overly affectionate husband.  The wives also seem to yearn for the kind of attention their well-meaning husbands don't provide.  When the therapist suggests a rather unconventional approach in therapy, the couples are at first jealous and enraged but soon realize the wisdom in his words.  With a little nudge in the right direction, the couples find that pleasing one another can be a lot easier than they thought, and that the benefits are worth the effort.

Faces at the Cross - Drama

The crucifixion of Jesus evokes different emotions from different people, even for those who were present at the time of  Jesus' death.  This skit explores what some of those people might have been feeling:  the Chief Priests mocked Jesus and felt justice had been served; one thief on the cross next to Jesus felt remorse, while the other thought only of himself; Mary Magdalene and John struggled with the meaning of it all; Jesus' mother Mary trusted that God had a plan for her son, even in his death; and Lucifer and his Chief Demon Baylock, rejoiced and claimed victory.

I Am - Drama

$10.00

Satan has accused 3 individuals and has brought them before God for trial - he plans to condemn each one for their various sins and sentence them to death.  The accused are: a married woman who had an affair, a man with a severe gambling problem, and a woman who left a young girl paralyzed after a drunken accident. After his interrogation, Satan believes he has enough to "convict" each person, and begins to celebrate his victory.  That is, until Jesus shows up, reminding Satan that "anyone who believes in me, though he were dead, shall not perish but have eternal life." Jesus reminds us of why he came, and saves the souls of the accused, setting them free.

There is an option at the end of the skit to sing or play a song of your choice.  While any appropriate song would work here, the author recommends "I Am," by Mark Schultz.

Lent is Spent - Comedy

$10.00

When a Pastor challenges people to "take on" things for Lent season, it causes some confusion and wonderment for a little girl named Sally. She's not sure what she's supposed to do, since she is so used to giving things up for Lent.  Her friend Pete thinks he can help and suggests ways to clean out her belly button, confusing "Lent" with "lint."  When Pete finally gets the concept, he begins offering some good ideas, but it seems his ideas tend to help himself more than anyone else.  When Sally points this out, Pete admits "taking on" things is hard, and wonders if the Pastor considered this before he suggested it.  The discussion briefly turns to what Jesus took on for us (our sins) and then how he gave his life so we could live forever in heaven. In the end, Pete and some other friends find ways to truly help others and make some changes in their attitudes, grasping the concept the Pastor originally intended.

In His Own Words - Drama

$10.00

In a monologue written especially for kids (or for those new to the faith), Jesus speaks about why he was sent to Earth, why he died and why he rose again.  According to Jesus, God had a special plan in mind for him all along.  In many ways, Jesus is a lot like each one of us, and in many ways, he's not.  He was sent here to teach the world about his heavenly father, God, and to take on the sins of the world, even though he was innocent. And although there are elements of sadness in the story of Jesus' death, in this skit, Jesus wants us to focus on the resurrection, and the hope for eternal life that it brings.

This skit is told in a simple, touching, and sincere way that kids will easily understand and relate to.

Down from the Cross - Comedy/Drama

$10.00

It's Easter, and the decorating committee is preparing for the annual service. According to the committee, "We can't make the stage look too cheerful."....Easter is "a terrible, awful time when Jesus suffered and died. It's full of pain and misery. There's nothing happy about it."  However, when Jesus makes a surprise appearance, he doesn't like the focus of the day. He can't understand why everyone wants to focus on his pain and suffering, instead of celebrating his life and victory over death.  The ladies of the committee try to convince Jesus to get back up on the cross but he tells them the suffering is over and that he came down from the cross a long time ago.  He'd rather focus on his relationship with them now.  But they aren't buying it, and even the Pastor agrees.  He tells Jesus that if he doesn't get back on the cross, he's going to ruin the whole service! Jesus wonders if everyone has "gone mad" and asks "Doesn't anyone care that I'm alive?" It doesn't appear so, until a little girl sees him. Finally, it takes the eyes of a child to see Jesus as he really is and to recognize what Easter is truly about.

A Knight's Tale - Drama

This is a tale of God's love and loosely parallels the story of Jesus death and resurrection as well as the forgiveness we are given as God's child.  Told in a "fairy tale" manner, it is a good reminder for all ages of God's gift of salvation and forgiveness.

King Edward Maubry and his daughter, Princess Audra, live happily in the Kingdom of Templar.  Everything a princess could want is within the her father's realm.  The only rule that must be obeyed is to stay within the boundaries of the kingdom, for only mischief and evil reside outside the king's land.  When Audra begins to question her father's rule she is warned that only separation and heartache will follow her but she is also told she is not a prisoner within the kingdom and she is free to leave as she chooses.  Although Audra was tempted to leave, she abided by her father's rule.  That is, until one day Audra hears a soft and gentle voice coming from the castle courtyard.  A man appears who seems kind (but who is really a fire breathing dragon in disguise) convinces Audra to leave the boundaries of the kingdom.  She soon learns that no freedom comes without a high price.

As another school year begins, so does another chapter in the life of Skits and Stuff.

  After some careful consideration, I am announcing that I will no longer be accepting custom skit requests.

I know this may be an inconvenience to several of my repeat customers, and for that I apologize. 

After several years of writing custom skits, and for the greater good of this website and all my customers, I feel it's time for a change.

I will still continue to write new skits but the way I populate the database will be a bit different from now on.

Instead of accepting custom skit requests, I will be looking for skit ideas.  Each month I will be focusing on a specific topic(s) such as Thanksgiving or women's ministry etc. During that time, I will welcome ideas and suggestions for those topics.  The main difference is that skits will no longer be customized to fit a   particular program, therefore making the skits on this site more "universal" - appealing to a wider variety of people. 

It is my goal to continue to populate the database with new skits that are fresh and interesting.  It's just how I go about doing that will look a little different from now on. 

To find out what I'm currently working on or what kind of ideas I'm looking for, just check the top of this page. 

I'm still in the process of updating my website to reflect the new changes, so please be patient. I appreciate your patience and understanding as I venture out into this new avenue of Skits and Stuff.

Thank you for all your great ideas over the years, and please, keep them coming!
