The Bell Tower

Participants= 1 Scouter and 7 Youth or 2 Scouters and 5 Youth

Needed but= Picnic Table or 2 Chairs or 1 Bench(if available)

1 Scouter acts as the Narrator and welcomes everyone to The Bell Tower in Notre Dame and points to 1 Youth standing on the Table/Chair/Bench and introduces the Youth as Quasimodo.

Quasimodo looks depressed and sighs.
Narrator
What's wrong Quasimodo?
Quasimodo
I'm tired and stressed.
Narrator
Why don't you take a vacation?
Quasimodo
I wish I could but then who would ring the Bell?
Narrator
Why don't you put up a "help Wanted" poster?
Quasimodo
That's a great idea

Quasimodo leaves the "Bell Tower" and puts up posters around "Notre Dame" then returns

Quasimodo
I hope someone sees the poster

Enter a second Youth that sees the poster

2nd Youth
"help wanted" someone to ring the Bell in The Tower. That sounds like just the job for me

2nd Youth "climbs" the "tower" and meets Quasimodo

2nd Youth
Excuse me but I'm here to see about the job
Quasimodo
I need a vacation but can't leave the "tower" so while I'm gone someone has to ring the "Bell".
2nd Youth
Well I could do that...it doesn't sound THAT hard.
Quasimodo
it's not. All you have to do is ring the Bell on time.
2nd Youth
how?
Quasimodo
it's easy. just run at the bell and hit it with your head. like this

Quasimodo demonstrates how to ring the bell

Narrator yells BONG
Quasimodo
now you try
2nd Youth
you mean like this?
2nd Youth runs at the bell
Narrator speaks in a normal tone bong
Quasimodo
no harder

2nd Youth tries a couple more times and begins to hold their head as the Narrator says bong slightly louder each time

Quasimodo
you need to practice
2nd Youth
is it supposed to hurt like this?
Quasimodo
it will at first. just be careful you don't want to get to close the the bell.
2nd Youth
why?
Quasimodo
the bell likes to swing. Anyway I'm going on vacation now.

Quasimodo leaves the tower and returns to the Section

Narrator
says "as the time comes to ring the bell"
2nd Youth rings the bell and "falls off the table" and lays on the ground
AAAHHHHHHHHHHH

enter the remaining Youth and or Scouter and crowds around the 2nd Youth

randomly asked from the crowd: anyone know who this is?

2nd Scouter or ;predetermined Youth
no but his face sure rings a Bell
