AS A TEACHER and also an examiner and adjudicator in the exciting realm of Speech and Drama, author Eleanor McLeod is all too aware of how difficult it is to find original and appealing scenes for young performers. This collection of monologues is based on characters from familiar fairy stories, many by Hans Anderson and The Brothers Grimm, where the author has taken a slightly different slant, often to modernise the characters and add a touch of humour. So, we have the Mother Bear who is all too aware of compensation culture, or Red Riding Hood's Grandma being hounded by the press! Others are more traditional. All of them have already been performed by keen young actors and actresses so we have already seen how they translate into entertaining and captivating performances. Watch out for Vol II 'Duologues' coming soon..

The plays are ideal for young performers aged 13-25 and offer a diverse range of challenges, styles and subjects. The volume will prove essential for teachers and students of Drama and for youth drama groups. The plays include modern reworkings of classics, such as Simon Reade's witty and brilliantly inventive adaptation of Lewis Carroll's much-loved fantasy, and DJ Britton's version of Sophocles' Theban plays, the tragic Oedipus/Antigone. Contemporary teenage issues are dealt with in Megan Barker's beautiful and uplifting Promise and Sarah May's The Butterfly Club. Simon Stephens' hit-play Punk Rock set in a grammar school explores dislocation and aggression among sixth form pupils; James Graham's Tory Boyz is a fast-paced, political comedy about prejudice and ambition in Westminster. Each play features production notes and the volume is introduced by Paul Roseby, Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre. For schools, youth theatre groups and drama colleges this anthology of thematically and stylistically diverse plays will prove an invaluable resource.

Six Ensemble Plays for Young Actors is an anthology of work written for actors aged 11-25. Ideal for youth theatre groups, schools and amateur dramatic companies, it contains a diverse selection of plays suited to large casts and ensemble performance. Varying in style and subject matter, the plays offer performers, directors and designers a range of exciting challenges: from recreating the mythological world of The Odyssey to a dramatisation of two hundred years of slavery that will take the audience on a journey from eighteenth century Africa to 1990s London in Sweetpeter. Contemporary urban living is confronted in plays ranging from the starkly realistic to the playful, lyrical and surrealistic. From the innocent and imaginative world of a school playground to issues of racism, peer pressure, crime and communication in a mobile phone obsessed culture, this is a wide-ranging anthology that will enrich the repertoire of youth theatre groups and the curriculum in schools. The volume is introduced by Paul Roseby, artistic director of the National Youth Theatre.

Lucky Charms

Lucky Charms is a play for students in Years 6, 7 or 8 (Level 3). It is designed for a normal-sized English class and for students with varying interests in acting. Since there are 43 speaking roles and as many as ten dancers, students who enjoy acting can perform in several scenes and play to their heart's content, whereas students who aren't particularly keen on acting only have one role to master in one single scene. Every scene deals with good or bad luck and sometimes specifically with lucky charms. And with the help of the two hosts, the professor and MC Tony, the audience is given the chance to contemplate the concept of luck. The play consists of dialogues between the two hosts and scenes with as many as eight to 13 performers. The themes are partly geared to the thoughts and dreams of students today - winning or discovering a lot of money, having the best cell phone, feeling that something good is going to happen or fearing that misfortune is on its way - and the scenes offer young actresses and actors the opportunity to experience a wide range of characters while performing. The plots are not always believable, but they are understandable, the language is idiomatic and easily accessible for English learners. Lucky Charms works well when performed for smaller audiences: parents and other classes. But it can also be highly entertaining for a large audience. Performing time: about one hour. Of course, it is also possible to select individual scenes and perform them as simple skits outside the context of Lucky Charms. In that case it is still recommendable to create a suitable setting for presenting the skits to an audience. The true joy of performing a foreign-language play is to feel it click, to realize that the people watching the performance don't only get the picture, they are also delighted to see a story come to life when presented in English by non-native performers. By purchasing the play, you automatically obtain the stage rights.

204 Short Monologues and Scenes for Kids and Teens is a compilation of Dave Kilgore's four previous books, 51 Short Monologues and Scenes for Kids, Volumes 1 and 2, and 51 Short Monologues and Scenes for Teens, Volumes 1 and 2. This book is designed for kid and teen actors to use in practice, in class, for auditions or just for fun. This book was also created to fill the void for acting teachers looking for positive and entertaining very short monologues and scenes for their younger student actors. The majority of the pieces here are under one minute, allowing for easy memorization and comprehension, while still telling brief stories with entertaining plot twists and allowing the younger actor to delve into character, history, relationships and environment. Talent agents and casting directors want to see what the actor can do in a short amount of time. Thirty to sixty second pieces, like most of the ones in this book, are ideal for that specific reason. Also, this allows the acting student to spend more time focusing on story and character. In this book are many fun pieces you'll be happy to see your own kids and teens performing, knowing they're not just learning to act, but also to tell stories and interact in positive ways. Some of the pieces in this book are more serious, and allow the younger actor to dig deeper and understand the character's journey. Many of these can be used for boys or girls by simply changing the names, and many can cross into different age ranges by using different scene and character direction. Included in this book... Tips on memorization. Tips on character development. Tips on character interaction. 56 Monologues for kids. 46 Scenes for kids. 60 Monologues for teens. 42 Scenes for teens. The author, Dave Kilgore, is an actor, pianist, film composer, music playwright, novelist, and lover of all the arts. He has written musical plays for kids, short and feature length screenplays and more. A career spanning decades in music, theater, and film, has given him the opportunity to view these crafts from many angles and write short monologues and scenes as clever and concise stories for young actors. Enjoy the journey!"

In Staging Scenes from the Operas of Mozart: A Guide for Teachers and Singers, opera director William Ferrara offers the perfect resource for the dramatic preparation of opera scenes for directors and student performers. Topics include study and research, rehearsal planning, blocking, characterization, and costuming for four of Mozart’s most popular operas. He surveys basic concepts of opera acting and directing and provides a step-by-step guide to the rehearsal process. While much has appeared on the history and musical performance practice of the operas of Mozart, no guide to the directing and acting of his operas—with simple, concise staging instructions and practical information concerning casting, props, and costumes—has yet seen publication.
