Type: Break Out of Shell, Creativity

Banana Drama GamePurpose: A fun, simple exercise to help students become comfortable performing in front of the class and break out of their shell.

Procedure:

1. Divide the class into pairs.

2. The goal of each pair is to create a 30 second scene using only four words: “Yes”, “No”, “Please” and “Banana”.

3. Depending on the age group, encourage the students to include a range of emotions in the scene, and if possible to have a beginning, middle and end. Although many of the scenes will be silly, encourage them to try and make it believable.

4. Allow the kids a few minutes to practice, then have them perform in front of the class.

TIP: Consider performing an example scene with an assistant before allowing the kids to create their own.

“It’s not often that I genuinely laugh at material written for this age group or genuinely get a lump in my throat. It’s so rewarding watching my younger actors perform material that doesn’t write down to them.”
