slideType: Creativity, Improv

Purpose: A fun, simple improv activity that involves a lot of players for each round.

Procedure:

1.  Ask 6 players to take the stage.

2.  Players 1 & 2 are a couple (or friends) who recently went on vacation. They are showing the audience a photo slide show of their vacation.

3.  Players 3, 4, & 5 create the slides with their bodies.

4.  Player 6 is the “clicker”, who dims the lights between each slide.

5.  Each time the “clicker” dims the lights, Players 3, 4, & 5 create a different pose.

6.  Then the “couple” explains which part of their vacation this is and exactly what is happening in the photo, justifying the players poses.

NOTES:

– Consider asking the audience for a suggestion of where the vacation took place before beginning.

– Consider adding fun comments like “Oh, looks like that slide is upside down!”.
