Silent Telephone

Thu, 25 Oct 2007 18:07:09 +0000

This is one of those goofy games that is bound to get you giggling. It’s always important that actors (be they human or puppet) communicate clearly. But just like the regular “Telephone” game you probably played as a kid, messages can get mixed up as they travel. Heh heh heh. So, have fun and see [...]



Props and Scenery

It’s time for another silly improv game. Try this one with your group of puppeteers to force players to think quickly and work together to make a harmonious whole. Set up. Gather your group around one person who will be “it” for the first round. Players need to be able to clearly see and respond to [...]



Name That Monster

OK, puppeteers. It’s time to think fast. This game forces players to be spontaneous and creatively random… while working with a partner! Oh, the hilarity. Set up. Pair up and set the scene by first determining a location. This can be anything… the surface of the moon, an amusement park, a dairy farm at sunrise, etc. Action. [...]



Big Fish, Little Fish

We love warm-up games that get brains going as well. This little exercise will force players to concentrate on their words, actions, and timing within the group. It’s a really simple game, but it’s certain to be a fun way to get your puppet rehearsals going. Set up. Gather your group into a circle - - [...]



Group Juggle

Wed, 28 Mar 2007 18:02:06 +0000

Wanna see if your team is in sync with each other? …working together? This simple group warm-up game illustrates the need for teamwork and stresses the importance of focusing on a particular task no matter what else is happening. Now, grab some bean bags and a bunch of friends and get juggling! Setup. For this game [...]



Surf’s Up

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 18:18:52 +0000

This exercise is a fun characterization game that takes a bit of concentration and requires silly physical movement. Use this as a fun warm-up to get blood flowing and giggles going. There are other similar games like this out there, but this version is my kooky twist on the standard. Have fun, dudes. Set up. Spread [...]



Squeezer

Tue, 13 Feb 2007 06:34:36 +0000

This is a well-known warm-up game that is frequently spotted at youth camps, scout meetings, and drama classes. It’s another one of those group games that helps reinforce the idea that a team has to be connected and alert to what is going on around them in order to make things work. Set up. Gather your [...]



Popcorn

This week’s improv game is a classic. It’s always fun to see what players come up with when asked to become inanimate objects! Use this exercise as a good physical warm-up as well as an opportunity to challenge players to be aware of each other and perform as a group. Set up. This game should [...]



One Duck

Fri, 12 Jan 2007 05:18:01 +0000

This week’s improv game is a great one for building up those concentration skills. Whether we work with spoken lines, lip synchronization, choreographed moves, or assisting another puppeteer, it is important that we are able to remain focused even when things get silly. Unlike some of the other featured games, this one does not require [...]



No Doubles 1-10

Sun, 24 Dec 2006 00:15:07 +0000

We love concentration games! This week’s feature is a simple game that forces players to watch each other, listen, and concentrate to avoid a repeat. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it is important that puppeteers (actors) are able to focus attention on lines and choreography and other characters no matter what [...]
