|Rachel S. Roberts' Writings
The definition of “skit” is a short performance designed to entertain and or inform. Having been asked by a resolute committee at my church that I write a skit for their 175th anniversary celebration, I demurred. Could I or should I try to capture the history of the church in such a way? Should I or would I be able to include the names of important benefactors of the parish? Could I possibly develop in a “short performance” something appropriate for the occasion, which should be celebratory, historic, uplifting, and somewhat spiritual, given that it is, after all, a church.
