Theatre games short form improv
The Theatre Games and the Improvisational acting workshop starts off with an introduction to improvising that does not require any acting experience but will give you a few techniques that will enable you to play the games. If you can pretend or do a funny walk or voice you are already an improvisational actor :) The games are about using improvisational acting skills to create short scenes in small groups based on suggestions from the other players. This may involve creating a scene by narrating a story the players act out. This may involve making up a song that the players perform. This may involve creating a story a word at a time. The style of game and the style of performance is limited only by our imaginations. The focus is on fun and enjoyment. If you want get involved in more serious improvisational acting there is an opportunity for that too.

Theatre games is about improvisational acting. You don't need to have any acting experience just a sense of fun and mischief.

Each game invites the group of players to respond to a prompt from the audience or the book of prompts.

The group is then given time to come up with a response according to the game. All of the games involve some element of performance. It could involve acting out the words spoken by a narrator telling a story. It could involve making up a song and performing it. It might be telling a story one sentence or one word at a time.

If you have never played theatre games before don't worry we have a quick warm up at the beginning to get everybody acting, singing, dancing and improvising.
