Try That On for Size



Audience Input:

No requirements.


Actors form two lines on the sides of the stage. Two actors start in the center and one actor starts miming an action. For example, if the suggestion is playing basketball, the actor would say “I am shooting a basketball, try that on for size” followed by a repetitive throwing motion. The other actor in the center copies the same action, but has to come up with something different that could still make sense, such as “I am swatting a fly, try that on for size.” The actors go back and forth, finishing their sentence with ”try that on for size” until one of them runs out of ideas or repeats something that has already been said. The actor who ran out of ideas leaves the stage, a new actor takes their place, and a new action begins.
