Receptionist
Patient #1

Pregnant Lady

The main patient walks into the doctor’s office. (You can have the patients open an imaginary door while someone off stage rings a bell.) He walks up to the receptionist.

Patient #1: (coughing) I’m here to see the doctor.

Receptionist: Sign in, please and have a seat.

Patient #1 signs the clipboard and sits down at the chair closest to the receptionist.

Patient #2 enters the doctor’s office sneezing.

Patient #2: (sneezing) I’m here to see the doctor.

Receptionist: Sign in, please and have a seat.

Ten seconds go by and Patient #1 starts to sneeze a little, while patient #2 is not sneezing
quite as much. A few more seconds go by and Patient #1 is now sneezing and coughing.

Patient #2 has stopped sneezing.

Patient #2: (to the receptionist) I seem to be fine all of a sudden. I’d like to cancel my appointment.

Receptionist: Very well. Have a nice afternoon.

Patient #2 exits the stage.

Patient #3 enters the doctor’s office scratching his entire body like he has an extreme case of chicken pox.

Patient #3: (scratching furiously) I’m here to see the doctor.

Receptionist: Sign in, please and have a seat.

Ten seconds go by and Patient #1 starts to itch and scratch a little, while patient #3 is not
scratching quite as much.
A few more seconds go by and Patient #1 is now sneezing, coughing and scratching.

Patient #3 has stopped scratching.

Patient #3: (to the receptionist) I’m going to cancel my appointment. I’m fine now. Thanks

Receptionist: Very well. Have a nice afternoon.

Patient #3 exits the stage.

Patient #4 enters the doctor’s office howling like a coyote every few seconds and looking
embarrassed and worried, as though this condition will never go away.

Patient #4: (howling every few seconds)

I’m here to (howl) see the doctor.

Receptionist: (wide-eyed) Um, sign in, please and have a seat.

Ten seconds go by and Patient #1 lets out a little howl, while patient #4 is not howling quite as much.
A few seconds go by and Patient #1 is now sneezing, coughing, scratching and howling.

Patient #4 has stopped howling.

Patient #4: (to the receptionist) I’d like to cancel my appointment? I’m feeling okay, but this person needs help.

Receptionist: Very well. Good bye.

Patient #4 exits the stage.

A Pregnant Lady enters the doctor’s office and approaches the receptionist.

Patient #1 sees the lady and gets extremely frightened.

Patient #1: AUGH!

Patient #1 runs off stage.

  • i almost fell of my seat laughing.This is a great skit.The kids will definitely do this next summer.Thanks for this great idea.

    • It’s a good one. The kids and staff love it. You can have the kids do other things like acting like a chicken, being overly happy or sad, being scared of everything, having a crazy twitch, etc. At one campfire the staff performed this skit, and at the last minute we decided to have all the counselors go up with a different ailment. So instead of three or four patients, we had 13 or 14. The first “patient” who gets all the sicknesses didn’t know about it so he had to do all 13 or 14 disorders at the same time, until finally, the pregnant lady came out. The staff thought it was the funniest thing. The campers were like, “What is going on?” Ah, good times.

  • Will do this one at camp. Like the idea of using many campers as that will work great in my groups. Does anyone have ideas for Olympic themed skits?

    • This is a fun skit for sure, Janet. I don’t know of any Olympic themed skits. When I was a counselor, though, I would come up with original skits either with my group or with another counselor.
