Reviews - What do customers think about Theatre Games and Beyond: A Creative Approach for Performers?

Wonderful source of creativity games & exercises  May 17, 2009
I was lent this book by a teacher friend and then bought my own copy. It has so many games and exercises, based on theatre games, but great for developing creativity. Can be adapted to many age groups and gives chatty, informative notes on how they have worked in practice, with reports from teachers who used them in class. Has an excellent introduction on playing games, creativity and education and a nice selection of "creativity" quotes at the end, not to mention sample lesson plans, etc. Well illustrated and easy to read. It's a must for anyone working in creative drama.
 
A Great Source for Beginners...  Jun 18, 2000
...and a good refresher course for theater educators or others who use the arts in the classroom. The games are organized into 12 units with titles such as "Trust" and "Reality," that guide your search for the right exercise, although I have found that randomly leafing through the pages proves equally as effective. The author places no age restrictions on the games, but most will work easily for students K-6, and many can be expanded or modified for older students. The quotations section in Unit 12 is especially inspirational and provocative. Schotz's style and attention to detail will reassure beginners.
 
FANTASTIC!  Jun 14, 2000
Being a drama director with young adults, I am constantly in search of new ideas and concepts to continue to stretch their imaginations. I just received this today from this site.com and am extemely pleased at what a gem this one is. There are new ideas from cover to cover that I have not come across yet in my library of theater books. I am anxious to share most of these ideas with the kids I work with. Many of the "games and beyond" are excellent tools in challenging the creative process within actors of ALL ages and really allow them to go many steps further in their self-awareness as a performer. Another must have!
