CAMP VILLAIN (any gender, late teens to late thirties)
Beloved Stone Valley campers, I have some teeeerible news for you. Can we all say, “nooooo!”
(pause to hear imaginary or real response)
Yep. I have just received word from the forest fairy that a new camp villain is coming. It’s Mr. McVayster the Food Waster! He does terrible things during mealtime like taking seconds and thirds and only takes one bite of each! Yeah, he’s a real booger. Would you like to meet him? Everyone count down
Onnnnnnnnnnnnneahahahahahahaaaah! Why helloooo, everyone. I’m so glad that Counselor Shane loaned me this body. Now some truly nasty work can begin-
Oh! I see someone shaking his head and rolling his eyes! Danny, isn’t it? Ha! Poor Danny thinks this... what... just a corny skit, don’t you, Danny? You think that this is just counselor Shane, pretending to be possessed.
Well, Danny, allow me to correct you. You’ve never told anybody in this camp... but you have a deathly fear of snakes, don’t you Danny? Do me a favor and look behind you.
