From the Broadway Teaching Group comes this extensive collection of free lesson plans, theatre games, and exercises. Organized alphabetically by title, these lesson plans cover a wide range of activities, such as a demonstration of how "Individual Experiences Influence Performances," an exercise on creating a soundscape, a stage directions game modeled after Simon Says, and a musical improv exercise. Many are geared towards actors, but there are also activities aimed at developing learners' writing and design skills, as well as activities exercising the imagination that could also be fun in non-theatrical contexts. Available as PDFs, each lesson includes the intended age ranges (as young as elementary age up through adults), a brief description of its purpose, and a list of materials needed, as well as instructions for the full exercise. Broadway Teaching Group was co-founded by director and writer Gordon Greenberg and producer Pam Pariseau, both of whom have acclaimed theatre careers on Broadway and internationally.
