Improv Game: SUPERHEROES TO THE RESCUE
SUPERHEROES TO THE RESCUE is a silly drama improv game, great for teens!
How to play superheroes to the rescue
This is an improv game that works well in groups of 4 to 5.
Instructions for this drama improv game:
In groups of 4-5, one student starts onstage and is given a “silly superhero”
character to play (“Lipstick Man” “Captain Coco Pops” etc.).
Have the class come up with a made up crisis (“All the chocolate in the world has disappeared” “a meteor is
heading towards earth”). The crisis can be big or small (“you can’t find your shoes”).
The superhero onstage starts the scene explaining the crisis (they might start by
watching the television and seeing the crisis in a news report).
At some stage the superhero comes up with a new silly superhero and says:
“If only ....[superhero] was here to help me”.
The new superhero answers the call, enters and introduces themself and their
The two characters proceed with the scene, discussing how they are
going to solve the crisis.
The second superhero then introduces a third superhero the same way:
“If only ....[superhero] was here to help us”
And so forth until all the students are in the scene.
Once all of the superheroes are in the scene, they attempt to solve the crisis and bring the scene to an end.
If students are having difficulty coming up with new superheroes, allocate each student a silly superhero before they start.
