Played in small groups onstage, or simultaneously with several groups scattered about the playing space. In this game, a group of players silently creates an environment within a few seconds. The players can be objects, characters, weather, etc. The lead player calls out a place such as ‘the beach.’ The stage players have ten seconds to form that environment without speaking. The lead player may count backward from ten to one aloud as the actors get into place.

Environment Examples:
  • The beach
  • A busy playground
  • School cafeteria

  • Grocery store
