“SHATNER!” Drama Improv Game

Shatner over reacting

Ok, this is a REALLY FUN improv drama game that your kids will LOVE! It’s called, SHATNER! (At least the adults of the kids will surely love it!) 🙂 (I did not think of this game, and due credit goes to where I heard of it from; the Facebook group, Homeschool Snark.)

We all know Captain Kirk from the old Star Trek movies.  And many of us theatre geeks have done his voice and pretended to be him at one time or another.  Well, this game will allow us to relive those fun moments, AND carry on the tradition of the old Star Trek shows as well as our favorite actor from the series, William Shatner. We all remember his overly dramatic voice, it’s what made him uniquely famous.

Well, the game is called, SHATNER! And it’s pretty simple to play:

Shatner shockedThe kids are just doing their normal day-to-day things in drama class and then someone yells, “SHATNER!” and the kids have to melodramatically overact whatever they are currently doing.  HILARIOUS!

Let us hear what you think!
