Type: Improv, Creativity
1. Create slips of paper with random phrases on them. (i.e. “The goats left for dinner already”, “Never point at a pine tree”, “Please stop looking at my earlobe”, etc.)
2. Spread the slips of paper face down on the floor of the stage area.
3. Ask two or three actors to improvise a scene.
4. During the improv at random intervals yell “Grab a slip!”. An actor must bend down in mid-sentence and grab a slip of paper, say the line, and somehow justify the line.
- Encourage all the actors to do the best they can to stay in character and allow the line to become part of the scene.
