About the Book:

112 Acting Games is a comprehensive workbook of theatre games for developing acting skills.

If you are looking for a quick-fix basic game book for drama, this book is not for you. However, if you are looking for something that delves deeper into exercises and their purposes, then read on. The objective of 112 Acting Games: Practical and Performance-Tested is to give theatre teachers the tools they will need not just to play a game or teach an exercise, but also to actually understand the reasons they are doing so and the practical benefits of each exercise.

This handy text by Gavin Levy will enable teachers to hold a group discussion when necessary and guide them on how to ask leading questions. For each of the 112 games, divided into 20 categories – sensory awareness, characterization, action and reaction, nonverbal communication, and much more – you'll find not only the description of the game, but also discussion guidelines, suggestions of variables, and a clearly delineated purpose for the game. Plus, in this second edition of the popular text, you get 25 bonus games!

What people say:

"From games devoted to increasing memorization and sensory awareness to improvisation and motor skills development routines, 112 Acting Games can apply equally well to adults and student actors." — Midwest Book Review

"Although this book is intended for acting teachers, ... many of these activities could simply be fun games to play with any group." — Voice of Youth Advocates magazine
