Spontaneous Performance

Acting through improv
By: Marsh Cassady

Age Level: All Ages

Over 300 improv exercises and theatre games to develop creative abilities and acting skills. Improvisational theatre involves students immediately without having to audition or learn lines and blocking. Instead they learn to watch, listen, and think on their feet. Improv is also a good way to develop confidence, to build characters, and to understand the various aspects of acting and drama. Many different types of improvs are presented in this theatre text, ranging from the serious to the hilarious. All are easily producible, requiring only simple sets and props. Includes exercises leading to widely varied subjects and genres of improvisation, from scenes dealing with youth problems to situation comedy.
