Don't Be So Dramatic


Today was my first day teaching drama at our weekly co-op and it was a lot of fun. I thought I would post what we did because it actually makes a great game for family home evenings, family reunions, or any silly party. First I had everyone take a diologue card. I took these lines from random plays. Everyone reads their line. Then Everyone takes a Drama Card: Blue is your character, purple is your point motivation (current emotion), and green is your prop. Now everyone has to read their line again but in character now. It was so cute! The kids were laughing and having so much fun (and so were the adults). Some of these were pretty tricky. Monster Man was a bunny, who was worried, with a carrot, and had to say, "Maybe tomorrow, ask me tomorrow." He hopped around nibbling on his carrot and squeaking out his line. Last night I showed the game to DSSH and he and I played a few rounds. Good times!

This sounds like it would be a good ice breaker for a party!

I remember something like this from a summer camp. Drama was never my thing though, I was too shy. Probably still am. Sounds fun though.
