Theatre teachers this is an amazing resource for beginning actors to develop a procedure and tradition at the beginning of class and rehearsal. Start with you as the leader guiding the students to warming up their bodies, voices and mind. Then designated volunteers, assistant directors, or stage managers to lead warm ups. By the second week of doing the warm up, your company will run like a well oiled machine with out you lifting a finger! The warm up instructions start with putting their scripts out on the edge of the stage and ending with your company seated quietly with their materials waiting for instructions.
Included in the warm up instructions are:
5 body drills
6 tongue twisters
5 mind challenges
