About the Book:

The games and exercises in 175 Theatre Games: Warm-Up Exercises for Actors are designed to be used as warm-ups at the beginning of a theatre class. They have been used successfully with middle school students and they can easily be adapted for use with younger children, older teens and even adults in various settings.

When students arrive for a theatre class, they appreciate a game or exercise that will loosen them up and activate their right brain – the artistic side. A good warm-up gives class members the opportunity to tune in to their creative natures and readies them for the adventures ahead. Each game involves most, if not all, the students in a class, has simple easy-to-implement directions, offers a practical benefit, and most important, is fun for your students.

The games are divided into thirteen sections for easy reference: 1. Clowning, 2. Cooperation and Teamwork, 3. Focus and Concentration, 4. Getting Ready, 5. Improvisation, 6. Listening, 7. Name Games, 8. Observation, 10. Pantomime, 11. Stretching and Relaxation, 12. Stage Movement, 13. Voice, and several more. The games have been adapted from many books, workshops and standard group activities. This is a comprehensive collection of tested games and exercises. 175 Theatre Games: Warm-Up Exercises for Actors is a must book for every theatre library.
