Stage Door News
Date: 29th June 2020 | Category: Uncategorized
Our first sessions of outdoor lessons were brilliant last Tuesday! We watched some of the best scenes be have seen in months! The children had a great time seeing their Stage Door friends and we are looking forward to the next sessions on Tuesday. We also had our Zoom Quiz on Friday night which was great fun! We will have another quiz in a few weeks so we will keep you posted.
We hope you enjoy some of the activities below…….
Stage Door Activities!
1 I Am A Magician
In this game, say to the children, “I am a magician and I will turn you into…” and then think of something to turn them into for example: Tea Pot, frog, jellyfish, slippery worms, bunnies. The students then act them out. If a student has an idea, they can become the magician and try the game on you!!!
2 Acting to music
The students must lie down and listen to a piece of music for about 30 seconds or more, and when they are ready, they stand up and move around the room in response to how the music is making them feel. The music may inspire them to be a wizard, skipping to wizard school, to walk through a cave terrified, or to be a huge, scary monster!!!
Students spread out around the room and move freely around until you say FREEZE. The students must then freeze in the position they land in and then justify that position, ie, I’m bouncing a ball, I’m hailing a cab, I’m batting a ball. You can vary this by adding in the directive of ‘create a short scene’, ‘add an accent’. We would love to hear if the students have come up with any creative scenes.
4 NURSERY NEWS
This actvitiy involves thinking of a nursery rhyme and reporting it on the news with ‘Studio guests’ and an outside broadcast interviewing ‘witnesses’. Here are some example of nursey rhymes that we think would be good scenes to report on.
1- Humpty Dumpty
2- Mary Had a little lamb
3- London Bridge is Falling Down
Here are some scenarios to try and improvise or write a scene/monologue about this week!
Visiting the Dentists
Boarding a bus
Stuck in a lift
Taking a pet to the vets
Visiting the Doctor
Buying a car
On a market stall
Having a photo taken
