Drama Toolkit is a resource and support website for Drama teachers, workshop facilitators and Drama practitioners. A one stop shop for Drama that aims to take out the frustration of coming up with original Drama Lessons, Session Plans and Schemes of Work, so you can concentrate on using the Arts as an amazing tool for children and young people.
Whether you’re a drama teacher, director, or running a course, acting games are a fantastic tool. They help students get comfortable, warmed up and focused. Acting games also develop important skills required for acting and performing. Below is a number of my favourite drama games. For each game or exercise I have given a difficulty rating and a recommended age range.
Drama Games for breaking the ice, physical warm-ups, group dynamics and encouraging creativity. These activities are drawn from a wide range of sources, including traditional games, as well as exercises developed by directors, actors and teachers.
