> What is a run-on and how is it different from a skit?
Skits typically involve several Scouts and something of a plot line(??!)
Run-ons are quick entrances by 1 or 2 guys, that result in a quick gag.
Run-ons are particularly useful as transitions between skits, songs, or
other meeting/campfire elements. While one group is getting its next act
organized up front a run-on can divert the audience and give a nice laugh.
Sometimes you might plan a series of run-ons, interspecrsed through the
meeting/campfire. They have a similar theme but a slightly different gag,
or they might build up to a gag at the end. See "Group Meeting Sparklers"
from the BSA for more material.
