This Second Edition includes twenty-five new bonus games!

The revised introduction from the author emphasizes the versatility of these games, and explains how directors and instructors from many different fields have successfully used these activities

The objective of the book is to give theatre teachers the tools they will need not just to play a game or teach an exercise, but also to actually understand the reasons they are doing so and the practical benefits of each exercise

It will also enable teachers to hold a group discussion when necessary and guide them on how to ask leading questions

Each of the games is divided into skill categories - sensory awareness, characterization, action and reaction, nonverbal communication and much more

You'll find not only the description of the game, but also discussion guidelines, suggestions of variables and a clearly delineated purpose for the game

The games are divided into 20 Categories ...

Relaxation

Sensory Awareness
Concentration & Focus

Imagination
Action & Reaction

Knowing Your Objectives
Life Experience
Special Awareness

Each exercise offers a particular practical benefit for actors

REVIEWS

"From games devoted to increasing memorization and sensory awareness to improvisation and motor skills development routines, 112 Acting Games can apply equally well to adults and student actors" ~ Midwest Book Review "Midwest Book Review"

"Although this book is intended for acting teachers ... many of these activities could simply be fun games to play with any group" ~- Heather Pittman "Voice of Youth Advocates"
