TOWN HALL MEETING
2. INTRODUCE CHARACTER!
Both teams scatter themselves into the audience to any place or seat they would like. The host serves this game as the mayor of a town. A suggestion is needed of something small, insignificant, and that can fit in your hand. (a pencil, a tic tac, lipstick, etc). Once the suggestion is chosen, one team will be in support of this object, the other team will be against this object. The audience is supposed to transform into a small “Town” during this game and they are the towns people.
Once the game begins, the Host will open the floor to “Public Opinion” in which anyone can speak their opinions about the suggested item. The teams will go one by one creating a character and a supporting story why they like or do not like the item. The game ends once all performers have contributed to the scene.
Kopy's Tips Explained:
- This game is driven by the characters that are created. They must be large, confident, and on your toes the entire game. The more in between bickering created by the characters, the better.
- Introduce your characters once you are called upon and stay in character the entire scene. Do not skip your introduction and launch into your story.
