  Let The Games Begin!

          Comedy Sports, Improvisations and Rehearsal Sessions

                            40 Theater Games


This book is filled with theater games and improvisational exercises that

help to develop spontaneity, freshness and excitement in your actors.

The games are great for comedy sports competition,

improvisation sessions and rehearsal sessions. They also

help to bring focus and confidence.



You can use this book in smaller acting sessions to help

shy people over come their fear of being in front of

a live audience.  According to a recent poll, the number

1 fear is public speaking.  The number 2 fear is dying. 

Amazingly, some people would rather die than get in

front of an audience.
