Drama Games by Drama Trunk

 

Drama Games are an important part of drama education and throughout their drama studies students should learn and play many games. As well as being great fun, games played in drama should serve a purpose such as:

 

Focus Games

Focus groups on the task at hand and anchor them to the drama lesson activities.

Improv Games

Improv Games are fundamental in the drama classroom and develop student confidence, storytelling, spontaneity, creativity, group bonding and more. 

Energy / Warm Up Games

Lift the energy of the drama class up at the right time to get the most out of the drama lesson plan. Give students a physical or voice warm up to prepare for planned drama activities.

Supporting the Drama Curriculum

Drama Games should support the curriculum and be used to advance the drama learning.

Skill based Drama

Skill based Drama Games help to develop drama skills such as characterization, physicality, confidence, improv, mime, storytelling and more.

Bonding Games / Fun

Drama Games are fun and can be used for group bonding. Kids will have favourites and get better at the games over time, giving a great sense of achievement and group energy.
