River Run

The narrator tells the audience they are going to explore the wilderness. He sets the scene with members of his patrol. Two members are the river, (they are always moving around. The Trees and bushes remain still. The uniformed volunteers play the rocks and they are in the front with their backs to the rest of the cast. The narrator walks to each person as he describes the items.) Then trees, bushes, squirrels, rabbits, etc. When you run out of members, solicit two or three volunteers to be the rocks. Sit them down in front of the rest of the scene. Now the narrator says: "Come with us now as we explore the beautiful wilderness. Here with have these great oak trees, mixed among the giant pine trees. Next, we have these rabbits and squirrels playing in the wilderness. And we find these rocks. Remnant of the very beginning of our planet, nestled here near the river bed. These are wild gooseberry bushes. Notice the berries are growing all over. Finally, we come to the rushing river. Always moving, the river tumbles down the canyon, hurries through the rapids, and washes up against the rocks!" (at this point the people playing in the river grab buckets of water and douse the persons playing on the rocks.)
