Students have a blast playing this game that turns everyone into a strange person! The activity allows young actors to experiment with extreme traits, giving them confidence to take more risks with more ‘normal’ roles. Included are complete instructions and over 80 quirks set up on the page ready to print out, cut apart and put in a hat.
Party Quirks is a classic improv game and many instructors may have played this before. On Drama Notebook, however, the actual party quirks are included. This is one of the things that sets Drama Notebook apart from other drama resources. Typically, there is a short description of how to play a game, but important details, such as the actual suggestions or prompts are missing, leaving the instructor to either make his/her own list, or to brainstorm in the moment. On Drama Notebook, the prompts are provided for you, leaving you free to focus on paying attention to the progress of individuals or the group.
Sample party quirks:
- Allergic to everything
- Gradually getting younger
- Has an imaginary friend
