Skitskrieg by TLC Creative
RolesMinimum Male roles = 5. Minimum Female roles = 2. Minimum total with doubling = 7. Minimum total without doubling = 51. Chorus.

Run TimeAround 60 minutes. [Estimated!] Period songs could be added to extend the run time.
MusicThe script contains the lyrics to one song (to the tune of 12 days of Christmas) and suggestions for other songs which might be appropriate for the show. (Note that additional songs will add to the run-time.) Lazy Bee Scripts does not supply any sheet music with this script.
StyleCollection of sketches. Minimal requirements for set and props.
SynopsisFifteen sketches with Second World War themes (although with a very modern perspective, including, amongst other things, pastiches of TV shows). Topics include rationing, air-raids, code breaking and various perspectives on the trials of military life.
