Players gotta play.

Are you wondering what to expect at a Fantastic Voyage show? Here are some of the short-form games we play, with simple explanations.

Scene games:

Alphabet scene Two players perform a scene where each line of dialog begins with the next letter of the alphabet.

Black Knight Multiple players perform a serious scene and are punished if the audience laughs.

Blind Line Prior to the scene audience members write random lines on papers. Players periodically intersperse the lines into the scene. Watch the video here.

Emotional Quadrants  The stage is divided into 4 quadrants and each quadrant is assigned an emotion. Two players perform a scene and they take on the emotion of the quadrant in which they’re standing.

Forward / Reverse Two players perform a scene. When the host yells “REVERSE!” they go backwards.

Freeze Tag  Two players begin a simple scene and play until someone yells “FREEZE!” They hold their position until another player takes their position and begins a new scene. Watch the video here.
