9781566081740: Theatre Games: Exercises for Learning Acting Skills

How do you set up a theatre game and actually play it? There are many books that describe theatre games, and even some that show illustrations. But the only way to really understand how to conduct a theatre game is to see it in action. On this DVD, Adrea Gibbs directs a workshop for students of all ages in a series of creative games for learning acting skills such as Imagination, Observation, Emotional Expressiveness, Listening, Teamwork, Trust, Improvisation, Scene Structure and Development, Focus, and Confidence. This DVD demonstrates over fifteen games and variations: Name Game, Animal Farm, A Simple Piece of Fabric, Emotion Tag, Mime Alley, Improv Starters, The Bench, Concentration, The Orchestra, This Is A..., and more. A 20 page accompanying workbook provides written instructions for these games. Theatre games are an excellent resource for learning basic acting skills, and this DVD is an excellent resource for learning how to lead them.

About the Author:

Adrea Gibbs is a fifth-generation Californian whose first theatrical experience was appearing in the "Rocking Horse Dance" as part of an Arcadia (California) Parks and Recreation Dance recital at the tender age of five. She has had the good fortune to travel and live across the United States, Europe and Asia in a variety of capacities tied to entertainment, from performance to management. She has appeared in three companies of CATS and The German National Company's production of Starlight Express. She was a trapeze artist with Troupe Hertz in the Moscow Circus, "Polly" in Crazy for You and Princess Leia for the grand opening of Star Tours at Disneyland.
As a director and choreographer, she has created performances for the German and Czech Cultural Ministries, the Musical Theatre Guild (MTG), Walt Disney World, Disneyland, EuroDisneyland, the Cabrillo Music Theatre, Window on China and many other independent plays, musicals and special events. Ms. Gibbs' love of working with children has prompted her to teach and develop programs for the Gymboree Corporation. She has also worked as Program Director for the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood, instructed Moorpark Melodrama children's workshops, and taught everything from pre-school to college level classes and workshops ranging from dance and theatre to makeup and music performance.
