For the game of Mega Replay, improvisers are asked to act out a scene based on an audience suggestion. Then, they must perform the same scene but alter it according to new audience suggestions: performing the scene in the style of a horror movie if the suggestion is "scared;" approaching the scene from the viewpoint of a calculus student when the suggestion is "math;" performing the scene like a Western when the suggestion is "1850;" etc.

Creative writing prompt: Take a story you've written, or your favorite classic story. Now tell a different version of that story, changing the genre or the main character's occupation.
