DRAMA

Activity 1

To use props as stimulus material [LO 3.3]

THE BALL

Exercise 1:

  • Bring a ball to the class – any size, colour or texture.
  • Divide into small groups ( 5 - 8 learners per group).
  • Improvise a situation in which a ball, or balls, is/are used.
  • The ball must be used as a prop and can represent different things and different moods.
  • Work on the scene for five minutes.
  • The scene must be one minute long.
  • Perform the scene to the rest of the class.

Activity 2

To draw and develop ideas when planning a drama [LO 3.4]

THE BALL: A PLAY

With this activity you are going to construct and create a short play derived from the previous exercise.

Exercise 2:

  • You already have a title for the play: The Ball.
  • Select scenes from the previous exercise.
  • Construct the scenes in such a way that it makes a sensible play of about five minutes.
  • Have your educator write down the plot and dialogue on the blackboard – this will be the script.
  • Select and volunteer for the following portfolios:
  • actors
  • props masters (look after the props)
  • costumes
  • director
  • stage hands
  • stage manager
  • prompt (reads the lines to the actors if they forget it)
  • Rehearse the play.
  • Perform the play.

Hints in creating and developing your play:

  • The ball can be anything you want it to be – be creative!
  • Choose a character you would like to portray.
  • Where do you want your play to take place?
  • What do you want to say?
  • How are you going to do it?
  • What is your character going to wear?
  • Do you want other props to be part of the play?
