Every Wednesday the High school will have theatre activities in the library from 1630 to 1715. This time would mostly consist of four games, such as musical freeze, slow walk, mirrors, and the famous charades.
Students enjoy playing ‘Mirrors’ as they are pitted against each other, one to be the leader, and the other to ‘mirror’ his or her actions. If you just want to have fun, you could dance or play a game of rock-paper-scissors with your mirror. If you want to take it a step further, you can try getting your mirror to do something ridiculous, such as opening the library door and walking out.
Students are having difficulties grasping the concept of ‘Charades,’ but they still enjoy it. Our first session of ‘Charades’ consisted of people losing their phone, others using an umbrella and lastly, people pretending to be fashion models. We had a few good laughs.
The ‘Musical Freeze’ is a rather simple activity. Students dance to the rhythm of the music and pause when the music stops. Students resume their dance when the music picks up.
Lastly, the ‘Slow Walk’ is even simpler than the ‘Musical Freeze.’ Students participating walk in slow motion. However, they are required to do something that makes their walk unique, different, not just an ordinary walk.
Come join the library from 1630 to 1715 and have some fun.
