Three Line Scenes

Three Line Scenes


People go pair by pair and improvise scenes with three lines in total. Either actor says the first line, then there is a response, then a response to that. Whatever is said is then wildly applauded.


Teaching Purpose

A nice way to introduce performing scenes for the first time and helps to get people get used to improvising in front of an audience. 

Later in the course we can add in variations to three line scenes:

  • Observing the other person and giving an offer based on what they are doing.
  • Establishing where you are.
  • Establishing character.
  • Establishing relationship.
  • Bringing in emotions like happy, sad, fearful or angry.
  • Bringing in reactions.

But we tend to work on one thing at a time.
