1. In a line facing the audience, players tell a group story.
2. One player is designated “the conductor” and kneels in front of the line.
3. When “the conductor” points to someone they must begin to tell a story.
4. After a few beats have passed and allowed the first players to develop a story line, the pointer will randomly point at someone else who must pick up the story exactly where the first student left off, be it mid-sentence or mid word.
– Consider encouraging the first player to choose a distinct character trait when beginning the story. (a grumpy old man, an excited teenager, etc.) All other players must tell the story as this “character”.
