Dating game improv characters
Two performers begin in audience-suggested positions and must begin a short scene based on that position (though they can then move freely).
At some point, one of the other performers calls “freeze”, at which point they tag one of the two on-stage performers and take their exact physical position, and begin a new scene.
The other three performers are the possible dates who are given odd personalities or characters by the audience or emcee.
Following two rounds of questioning, the contestant must guess who the others are.
The 1960s television show The Dating Game featured three contestants who competed for a date with a bachelorette.
As the bachelorette could not see the contestants, she would ask love connection questions and base her choice off the answers.
The performers must go through the entire alphabet as many times as they can.

At the sound of a bell, the two performers in the scene leave, two new performers come in starting a new scene using the last line of dialogue from the previous scene.
Performer A becomes Performer B, B becomes C and C becomes A.
They take over the character and physical position of the person they are switching to.
Four lines make one verse; after the first verse, a second verse is started by performer number 2; and so forth.
After four verses every player has both started and ended a verse and the song is over.
