100 Acting Exercises for 8 – 18 Year Olds

100 Acting Exercises for 8 - 18 Year Olds

This book offers a comprehensive guide to teaching acting exercises that will unleash the inner creativity of students aged 8-18.

Theories and techniques of some of the greatest theatre practitioners including Sanford Meisner, Constantin Stanislavski, Lee Strasberg and Uta Hagen provide a basis for Samantha Marsden's original exercises for students between these ages. You won't find Duck, Duck, Goose, Zap, Zap, Boing - or any other traditional drama games in this book: instead, the craft of acting technique takes the limelight.

These exercises have been tried and tested in the author's own classroom, and are guaranteed to inspire, ignite imagination and encourage heartfelt performances. Focus points used in leading drama schools such as voice, movement, relaxation, character development and understanding text are recreated for a younger student. They are easy to follow and will be fun, challenging and immensely rewarding for teachers and students alike.

The book features a foreword by Paul Roseby, CEO and Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre.
