Here are seven drama word search puzzles with a total of 171 words--drama vocabulary, costume and set design, radio theater, Broadway musical titles and Broadway performer names. These word search puzzles can be used separately or with one of my drama lessons and/or units. They could also be used in distance learning. #DistanceLearningTPT

Although these were created for secondary classes, an elementary class could use these as well. The teacher is the expert as to which words and puzzles their students should study.

Great for a substitute, too!

Puzzles Include Words For:

  • Origin of Theater
  • Costume Design
  • Set Design
  • Radio Theater
  • Broadway Musicals
  • Actors and Actresses (of the stage)
  • Drama Vocabulary

These word search puzzles could be used as an introduction to one of my lessons, as a sponge or extension activity.

Field tested and created by an award-winning drama teacher of thirty-eight years.
