Can't Pay the Rent
Home > Resources > Activities > Skits
(In this skit, one person plays all three parts by changing the voice and by using a paper napkin as a mustache, hair bow, and bow tie, as the parts call for.)
Villain: [sound effect] Knock, knock, knock.
Girl: [very timid high, pitched voice] Who is there? Villain: [fiercely] I've come for my rent!
Girl: [in despair] I can't pay the rent! I can't pay the rent!
Villain: [forcefully] You will pay the rent, or I will throw you out into the cold.
Girl: [Looking around] OH, here comes my hero! Help, help, help.
Hero: [nobly] Unhand her, you cad! Villain: I have a right to my rent.
Hero: I have the money from her father's will here! Now leave and do not return!
Girl: My hero, my hero!
Villain: [as he slinks off] Curses, foiled again!
