While drama is typically a get-up-and-go class, teachers always want to have a balance, especially at the beginning of class. That’s where these Drama Bell Ringers come in for the rescue! Start your day with a fun and interesting way for students to deepen their knowledge of theatre with different themes each day!
In this item you will find WILD CARD WEDNESDAY bell ringers that will cover over one whole semester! The idea would be to start off Wednesday (or any day you choose to edit it to) with these bell ringers. Typically semesters are 18 weeks long, but in this item each bell ringer includes 25 WEEKS worth of content, so you can pick and choose the content you think your students will find the most interesting!
Hopefully, you will find that these quick and easy bell ringers deepen your classroom experience, giving students exposure to aspect of theatre you may not have time to cover in another way!
Wild Card Wednesday
Everything that is not typical Western Theatrical performance from Kabuki theatre to Vaudeville to looking at specific plays. Some include links to video clips to enhance the bell ringer if you wish.
This is offered as a Google Slide Presentation as well as a PowerPoint.
In total, this activity will bring you 27 SLIDES of content as well a teacher’s guide and student worksheet for your classroom!

A look at a musical, a video clip, and a reflection question. There are new modern musicals as well as classic musicals and everything in between.
A quote about acting, theatre, etc. and a reflection question. Some questions are more intense than others, so you may want to ramp up to the harder questions if you wish, depending on the class.
A look at technical aspects of theatre from careers in tech to specific shows involving interesting technical aspects. All of these have a coordinating video clip to illustrate the concept.
*Find It Friday
A trivia question about theatre students have to research and find the correct answer. Make it an individual race and award extra credit to the person who gets the correct answer first or just a fun activity to start off the day. Students will need internet access to complete the activity; therefore you will need either student phones, laptops, or a computer lab.
