Acting Games

Acting Games Warm-ups and practices are meant to be productive, but why not make them fun by playing games to get you into the groove (because who doesn’t like to play games)? Not only can these activities help students get warmed up, but they also help them feel more comfortable and focused. The games are broken into categories and also list the age range they work best for and the difficulty level. There are games for all ages included, some of which you may have heard of before. Remember, you can’t put an age on having fun! Check out the link below to get started with these helpful tools! http://www.stagemilk.com/acting-games/

Nice Work if You Can Get It: Being a Volunteer Usher on Broadway

BY JOANNE KAUFMAN via www.nytimes.com Greet audience members, take tickets, work the concession stands, run the elevator. Point the way to seats, restrooms, box offices and exits. These are some of the tasks of a volunteer usher at theaters across New York City. The lure: a free ticket. The competition: increasingly fierce. Richard Ponce, the house manager of the Helen Hayes Theater, said he has 250 more requests than slots he needs to fill for the 10-week run of “Lobby Hero,” which opens March 26, and has Chris Evans and Michael Cera in starring roles. “It used to be this sort of secret thing,” Mr. Ponce said of the volunteer program. “Now there are hundreds and hundreds more people who want to do it.” Comparatively rare at Broadway houses like the Hayes, volunteer ushers have long staffe...
