These printable improv scenario cards and suggested games are based on real life funny wacky events that happen around the world. Use the cards for spontaneous improv games where a prompt is needed or otherwise task players to come up with scenes or monologues based on the cards.
Use these fun 'Wacky Events' cards with the following suggested improv games (instructions included in resource), theatre activities, use them to start scenes or to start any improvisation:
- The Big Event Mime
- Write This Event
- Televised Event
- Festival Scenes
- Winner Interview
The improvisation cards can be used in so many more ways and with different improv games and exercises!
If you're like me, some days you just can't think of creative scene prompts, scenarios or ideas for your drama or theatre class games and activities. If you are teaching improv to middle school or high school kids, these improv cards are an invaluable resource!
Example 'wacky events' improv games prompts:
- Cheese Rolling Festival (an event in England where competitors chase a large cheese down a dangerously steep hill and the winner gets the cheese)
- Tunarama (an event in Australia where competitors toss tuna fish like discus)
- World Gurning Championship (an event in England where competitors try and pull the ugliest face possible to win a prize)
