And the villain still pursued her

I remember in grade school performing little melodrama skits with The Hero, The Girl and The Villain embroiled in various train track/sawmill perils. It was kind of fun spoofing old-timey melodramas, even though the only exposure we had to them was through cartoons that were also spoofing them.

I don’t think kids do melodrama skits any more. The source material is just way too far away at this point. What do they do instead? Do they do parodies of Saturday Night FeverThe Breakfast Club? Just wondering.
