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.

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/
