Story Line-up
(This game is on video in Drama Notebook)

In this game, players create a story line by line in a random order. One player takes the stage and offers one sentence of a story. It can be a beginning, part of the middle, or the end of a story! Another player takes the stage and either stands to her right (closer to the beginning) or to her left (closer to the end) and fills in another sentence of the story. Play continues with players joining the line-up, filling in the missing parts of the story until the story is complete!
