This drama warm-up is part of a collection of 40 classic drama games found on Drama Notebook.

This game is on video in Drama Notebook!

Drama Game Group StopHave everyone quietly mill about the room. Tell group members that at any moment, a player may stop. As soon as that happens, the other group members should also stop. Basically, one person ‘freezing’ should cause all of the others to freeze. Anyone in the group may start moving again, causing the entire group to move. This game reminds actors that what they do onstage is dependent on what other actors do. A play is a series of actions/reactions, not merely memorizing one’s part and saying lines on cue.
