Gathering of the Nuts Version 2

Vincent: I am the famous artist Vincent Van Go-Go. I have come here this evening at great expense to create one of my living nature paintings which will express the atmosphere of this camp! First I am going to need some trees. (Two trees are selected from the participants in the audience and are directed where to stand. They wave their arms gently.)

Vincent: Now, I will need some birds to twitter among the trees.

(Three birds are selected, and they move around the trees, making twittering sounds.)

Vincent: (Stands back to view scene) Perhaps a sun to shine on everything. (A tall participant stands on a bench and smiles brightly.)

Vincent: (Again viewing) It's not right yet. I know, some rabbits hopping around. (Assistant Leaders are chosen for rabbits)

Vincent: One last touch. A babbling brook. Scouter, will you be the brook? You're always babbling? (The brook takes his place.)

Vincent: (Turns to audience) There it is, another Vincent Van Go Go original nature scene. I call it "The Gathering of the Nuts."
