Scenes From A Hat
Scenes from a Hat is an arc game.
Number Of Players
This game is traditionally played with 6-10 people with a host to read suggestions throughout.
Many types of suggestions are taken for this game. Life events, discoveries, actions, all of these categories are used as prompts.
How It Is Played
Players stand in an arc facing the audience at the back of the stage. Suggestions are read and performers step up to make short (one or two line) scenes acting out the given scene.
Tips For Performance
- Don't let there be a long lull when a suggestion is first announced. Even if your joke is bad, any joke is better than silence.
- Don't step on other people's jokes. Be polite when stepping up, try not to run each other over.
- Try to listen and not repeat jokes other performers have said.
