Warm-up

These games and exercises are meant to get everybody in a cheery mood, establish trust between the players, and sharpen concentration. Apart from that, most have no performance value, and are rarely used to teach any particular skill. These games and exercises can be used for improv training, these games would just as well work to entertain the kids on a rainy day at the girl scouts.

You`d use these games at the start of a rehearsal, or as part of the preparation for a show.
