Improvisations and exercises for developing acting skills


By Suzi Zimmerman


 

Cover of
Written especially for those who coach tween and teenage actors, this delightfully fresh workbook tells you the how, when, what, and why of theatre games for young performers.  Starter scenes allow first-time performers to ease onto the stage in baby steps.  Spontaneity is encouraged along with etiquette and basic acting principles.  The concepts of pantomime, improvisation, character development, voice, and body control are all presented in game formats with exercises.  Nine chapters include:  Before You Begin, Preparing, Starter Scenes, Exercises, Games, Improvisation, Pantomime, Non-Acting Theatre Games and Activities, and Developing Your Program, plus an Activities Index.  Anyone working with young actors will find this theatre book exceptionally helpful, and you’ll love that it’s written by Suzi Zimmerman, author of the best-selling Introduction to Theatre Arts.
