36 thought-provoking questions to help young actors get to know one another or to use as monologue/short play prompts.

Use this list of 36 questions to help your actors become acquainted with one another. There are two pages: one for younger students and one for older students. Also included are three variations for the activity and a sample monologue based on one of the questions. They are set up on the page so that they may be easily printed out, cut apart and put in a hat.

Sample Questions:

  • If you could instantly play an instrument, what would you pick? Why?
  • If you won $100, but could only keep half, what would you do with the rest?
