Sketches

We have a wide range of sketches and skits on offer. They vary in length from two to twenty minutes, cover a bewildering range of subjects and there are monologues, two handers and scripts for up to a dozen performers so plenty to choose from! Some with minimal props and set, some requiring more complex preparation.

We also offer collections of themed sketches on our Revue Show script page.
