Vocal warmups are a tried and true theatrical tradition. I was at rehearsal yesterday and we were discussing them. What warmups you prefer can vary on what country you're from and what teachers you've had. They may seem a bit boring but they are a must needed item.

Theatre Game of the Week #2025-2-13

This is a very well known warm up game in the theatre world. You can use it in big groups or small groups. It will help create teamwork and bonding amongst your team and work on speaking and moving quickly. I like to use this game in my ESL classes and I will use it when I'm directing a show with adults. It's a basic that everyone can benefit from. Of course different teachers teach this game differently. This is the way that I was taught it and play it with my students. How do you play it? I'm interested in hearing all the different variations of the game.
