In this stage, participants focus on developing skills needed to participate in drama. The leader builds a base and a place where drama can happen safely for all participants at the individual development level of each group. At this level, these are quick activities that introduce a skill or concept needed to do dramatic work. These are pre-drama activities. Not all of our pre-drama activities are available in lesson plan form but you can check to see if the one you want has a corresponding lesson (typically with the same name). Most can be taught from the activity description using the “Tips, Hints and Strategies” section. Individual Activities can be found using the Search bar on the right.
