Here's a suggestion: what about the scene in IV Henry I in which Hal and 
Falstaff play that "scene" in which they alternate playing the 
"characters" of Hal and his father? That seems quite "liftable," with a 
nicely satisfying final line. I think it's in 2.5.

For some reason (maybe poised to teach The Tempest for the next four 
weeks), the late plays some to mind. Pericles is so episodic you could 
take your pick: incestuous daughter episode perhaps? I once workshopped 
the 2 Shepherds + Autolycus scenes from TWT successfully at about that 
length. There's the Induction to Shrew, the pageant at the end of Love's 
Labours too.

Would it be a possibility to work on characterised stagings of sequences 
of sonnets as a lateral thinking approach or do you have to have named 
characters?
