Hey guys!

I recently joined my local children’s theater and I fell in love with acting!
I’ve also started up improv classes and was wondering if anyone has any tips for improv and some really cool improv games to play?

Hi! I have been acting since I was old enough to talk. Acting is a great way to express feelings and emotions of different characters in a fun, exciting way. I’ve done plays from The Three Musketeers to Alice in Womderland, to Pippi Longstocking. In our drama department at High School, we perform 4 shows usually and on the very last day we are told to throw some improv in our acting. The fun thing about improv is that you can portray your character how you think they should act and how you express your character in a fun unique way. I suggest reading your script but not doing it word for word al the time? How boring! Instead, throw what you feel you should throw in. Just be careful on how you do so. You don’t want the audience to interpret something totally different that what you intended. Some improv games can go like this:
You and another person should be given a topic (it can be some random thing) and you have one person act as a funny character and a mean character or whatever character you want to be (talented, untalented) smart, dumb, whatever and throw whatever you want to in there to make it fun and meaningful. Then, have the audience or fellow cast members pick which one did the best.

My biggest advice for improve is “Yes, and…”. That’s all you need to know. But like everything else, practice makes perfect. Good luck!

My biggest piece of advice is that you won’t always be the center of attention. If you try to make every scene about yourself it will be weak. Try instead, to create a scene with your fellow players and build relationships between the characters. Try to build chemistry between yourself and the others. You may find yourself the main character of the scene (which is great) but don’t try to make it happen. Remember, the scene is only as strong as it’s players and the players are only strong if they work together.
