Actually this is not a game but acting with your voices, just like people who
are in radio dramas on the radio.
Here are the main steps in getting it going:
1. Script - Find a script of a play or a drama that has the same number of characters
your group has. If there are more characters than your group size, you can
possibly have some group members take up two parts if some parts have very
few lines. (For example, in our radio drama "A Christmas to Remember", two
characters have very few lines: the father, and the Christmas tree salesman.
So possibly, the person playing the boy can also play both the father and the
salesman.) You can also have someone responsible for sound effects who also
doubles as the minor characters.
2. Casting - Decide on who will play which character in the script chosen.
3. Reading - Have all the characters sit in a circle. Then starting from the
beginning of the script, each character should read his/her own lines.
4. Memorizing - Each character should memorize his lines before the next
practice. (Everyone should agree on how far to memorize - one scene each
week should be a minimum so that if there are 4 scenes in the play, after 4
weeks, everyone should have his/her own part totally memorized.)
5. "Acting" - After a scene has been memorized, each actor/actress can then
practice saying the lines from memory according to the script.
6. Performance - A date should be set ahead of time for the group to perform
in front of an audience. This will give you a good incentive to work on it.
Note : If you have an English club at your school, this will be a great way
to learn and practice English together.
