Drama Menu is a brand new concept for planning and delivering dynamic, progressive drama lessons and workshops. Packed with over 150 tried-and-tested theatre games, exercises and improvisation ideas, it’s an essential resource for any drama teacher or workshop leader – guaranteed to deliver delicious drama sessions every time.

Simply make a selection from each of the three courses, and your whole drama session will come to life with new-found energy and focus:

  • Appetisers are fast-paced warm-up exercises to energise and enthuse the group;
  • Starters are the intermediary course to challenge the players and encourage creativity;
  • Main Courses provide the central part of the session, culminating in a final performance piece;
  • And a few Desserts are also provided, if you have some space at the end of your session for something sweet.

Drama Menu is the recipe book that will relieve the stress of planning lessons and workshops. Now you can get on with what you do best: delivering creative drama sessions that will have your groups hungry for more.
