"Give me a lime!" History Skits 1700s

Pirates, Court Life, and a Fife

  • Are you interested in pirates or what it was like to be at a king’s court?

  • Can you imagine a commoner winning a court case against a Royal?

  • Do you want to be a part of a silly Revolutionary War music trio?

Book includes FIVE skits about TRUE EVENTS in American or British history.

1) “The Legend of Pirate Sam Bellamy” is an award-winning poem that is acted out in tableau, pantomime, and sword-fighting action. 

2) “The Combo” is a popular but silly skit that sums up portions of the Revolutionary War.

3) “Dream of Romance…at Court” delves into the court of King George I.

4) “A Jacobite Revel” focuses on an English town defending itself – with a bit of humor thrown in.

5) “Richmond Park,” is about public access to a Royal park.

Fabulous extended teaching and poster ideas included.

Students fell in love with each one of these really different, but well-written skits. They loved the humor.
