9/25 Drama Agenda

Play game.

Have each group generate a few new products, ones that no one has ever seen before and write each on a separate notecard.

Tell the players they are now an advertising agency, letting an eager public know about this great new product and how useful it is.

Players should build on everything their teammates say, starting each sentence with “YES, and…”

Insider Tips:

  • Choose a suggestion card from a group other than the one that’s on stage so they don’t get their own.
  • Hold them accountable to starting with “YES, and…” and to building on what others say.
  • If they start to fumble or slow down, offer encouragement (“Tell us more!” “What makes it so special?”) without suggesting ideas.

Assign groups to games.
