Practice scenes for 2 actors
Practice scenes for 3 actors
Practice scenes for 4 actors
Plays for small casts

And you can, of course, think of some of the iconic plays e.g. A Streetcar 
Named Desire, read the script and pick out a scene w/ multiple characters.  You 
could have a LOT of fun w/ Shakespeare’s comedies esp. A Midsummer Night’s 
Dream, 12th Night, etc. etc.

Have fun!
