Skitting It Up

July 19, 2010

It seems like every time we hold a skit night at CTT, Alex Fang wears a dress.

Except this time, at Jive through the Genres, he wasn’t alone. About half of the group, including A.J., Evan Cook and Ethan Ebinger joined him in wearing women’s clothing. Their skit was based around Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and poked fun at some of the couples in camp. And it was good, but they faced some stiff competition from the rest of the field.

The boys in the BV remade the video from the Jonas Brothers “Year 3000,” which featured Jack Corby and Paul Holtz on a trip through time and Justin Lasker as Paul’s great-great-great granddaughter. Cabin G performed a dance to Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” and Cabin A based a routine around Taylor Swift’s “Our Song” and we saw Hayley Sanders dance in counselor Susan’s cowgirl boots, which was very impressive.

Cabin 3’s routine was a real crowd pleaser. They put together an act based on theme songs which was the soundtrack to Josh Arnold and J-Man’s journey to test their friendship. They started out in a yellow submarine and then met Spongebob Squarepants, The Simpsons, pirates and finished it with the Ghostbusters slugging it out with a pesky poltergeist. All of the acts were good, but at the end of the night the first girl’s tent group pulled out the big guns.

I can’t lie, I don’t know exactly what song they used. Their genre was boy bands and they all sound the same to me, so I don’t know which one it was. But whichever one they used, they had a well-choreographed routine to go along with it. Erin Smedley, Emily Middendorf, Marley Smith and the rest of the gang really put a lot of work into the routine. Olivia Kimmel, counselor Steph and Rina Berman posted up on the front of the stage dressed as whichever boy band they were and the whole crowd got into the act.

The girls took their first skit win of the year and they deserved it. Their dance was well put together and polished and, as I predicted, raised the bar yet again for what is expected from these skit nights. But at this point I’m not surprised, I’m just anxious for the next batch of skits which will come in Friday during Movie in a Minute.

Yay, skits!
