  Improvisational Play

Improvisational play utilizes humor and the game form for the development of skills necessary in
becoming an emotionally well-rounded, social thinking, functioning human being. Theater games are
the building blocks of Improvisation. Each game focuses the players on an explicit short-term objective that can only be met through social interaction and the shared reality of the players. Each game incorporates humor and skill development as tools for meeting explicit goals. Students experience two
perspectives, that of the players and of the audience members.
