PROPS/COSTUMES:
Popcorn in bucket, movie theater seats. You can use 7 regular chairs set up next to each other in a row. You can also use dramatic music and flickering light like from a movie projector.

Frances eats some popcorn and passes it to Kenny. Kenny eats some popcorn and passes it to Eric. Eric eats some and passes the popcorn to Buzz. By the time it gets to Buzz, it is gone.)

(Buzz turns popcorn bucket over.)

Buzz:
Fine! I guess I'll just have to get it myself.

(As Buzz goes out he accidentally steps on everyone's feet.)

All:
(One at a time, as feet get stepped on.)

Ow...ow...ow...ow...ow...ow.

(Buzz returns with a big bucket of popcorn. He starts back to his seat.)

Oooh, more popcorn -- yum!

(Kaleigh grabs a handful of popcorn as Buzz passes by.)

I'll take some of that!

(Rachel grabs a handful of popcorn as Buzz passes by.)

Well at least they saved a little for me!
