Voice & Dialogue

Voice & Dialogue

The voice to an actor is so important and these games will help you think like an athlete when it comes to developing this skill. Your vocal chords need warming-up then exercising to build stamina, strength and flexibility - this in turn will help clarity, diction and expression.

This is a camp style game that is great for warming up the voice and developing accents.

Master Master, Who Am I?

A game to encourage accent, a silly voice or character to disguise your identity.

Nursery Rhyme Action

Create an improved version of well-known nursery rhymes with actions.

Games could be a beginning starter, an introducing step during a workshop or as an end plenary. They are a platform for further development and are never meant to be the whole session on their own.

The nature of drama games is that they are shared, adapted and extended. The original author is not so important as the shared practice. You’ll find games on the site that you’ve seen before, called something different or that you even use in your own teaching toolkit.

We hope that among the known games are ideas of how to refresh old ones as well as new games to use.
