An announcer in a comedy theater (I don't know how to call it; a small theater where actors are acting out some small funny skits) wants to prepare the audience for the next skit. So, he provides some background information for the upcoming act and wants the audience to clap their hands, thus, giving a signal for the actors to start performing.
What would the announcer typically say in this situation? Could he say something like "Please, welcome our next skit!", or "Please, welcome our next act!", or something totally different? (Not sure if it's okay in English to welcome an event instead of a person.)
I am especially interested in a case when the announcer wants to use a title for the skit. For example, "So, please greet our next act "The Tortoise and the Rabbit"!"
