1. Team one, come up here. Are you ready? Go!
2. Team one, come to the front. Who is the movie director? You should say, "Ready? Let's go." Then act in the play.
3. Come up here, members of Team 1. The director should say,"Ready? Action!" Then you should start acting out the play.
4. Team 1 should start acting in this play. The director in this team should say,"Ready? Action!" Then they can act out.
[Which ones are correct and commonly used? Would you correct any errors? Thank you.]

As I have explained before, numerals under 13 must always be spelled. It's Team One, NOT Team 1 when used in a sentence.
#1 is fine.
#2 "then act in the play" is a phrase, a prepositional phrase, not a separate sentence.
#3 is fine
#4 Same as #2
Thank you for your help.
5. Then you can act out the play.
6. Then you can act out in the play.
7. Then you can act in the play.
8. Then you can act the play.
[Which exporessions are grammatical?]
I still think the phrase beginning "then" is not a separate sentence. Then is defined as an adverb, not defined as a preposition, but that's my opinion, that we use it in lieu of a preposition sometimes. In any case, I think your wording is best as you wrote it in #2. Five through eight are grammatical Number 6 is a bit awkward, though. "Acting out" can mean acting out frustrations or other negative feelings in inappropriate ways. To act in a play is not the same thing, usually.posted by Reed
