Lesson Plans for Theatre Trivia


Do you know about our free Theatre Trivia website? It’s a resource with over 1000 theatre trivia questions and answers as well as links to source material to learn more.

The trivia questions can completely random, sorted by category, printed in a full page format or as flashcards.

We’ve added some free lesson plans to the site so you can use the trivia questions in a classroom setting.

  • Random Question Generator
    Use the Random Question Generator to get a list of 15 random trivia questions and make an activity of recalling and/or researching the answers.
  • Category Question Generator
    Want to focus on a particular area of theatre history? Use the Category Question Generator for this activity.
  • The Game
    I think this would be a great rainy day theatre-related activity. Teams compete to crown the Ultimate Grand Supreme theatre trivia experts in your classroom.

The lesson plans can be downloaded from the website under the “Printable Lesson Plans” heading.

Lastly, we want this site to be useful to you and we’re very open to suggestions. How would you like to see the resource grow?
