  1. This is a two-part video which documents middle school students doing the "Did you bring it?" improvisational acting exercise utilized in the first three lessons of the Youth Ensemble Theater program. The second part of the video is a series of interviews, documenting from the student/actor's point of view, their rehearsal process as part of YET.

    The purpose of the "Did you bring it?" exercise is for actors to:
    1. Listen and respond, moment to moment
    2. Practice the use of character intension, urgency & obstacles
    Criteria is the following:
    1. Actors must accept whatever offer the other actor makes.
    2. The scene must start with "Did you bring it?" and "No"
    3. Actors must not reveal what "It" is.
