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!"

Preparing for an audition and unsure of what you want to do?The Ultimate Scene and Monologue Sourcebookis the book you've been waiting for. Unlike “scene books” that reprint 50 to 75 monologues excerpted from plays but don't include any background information, this annotated guide tells you what you really need to know about audition material from more than 300 contemporary plays. Here is how the book works. Suppose that you're looking for a dramatic male/female scene. When you scan “Part One: Play Synopses and Analyses,” you come across an entry forThe Middle of the Nightby Paddy Chayefsky. This is what you see: The Middle of the Night by Paddy Chayefsky (Samuel French) Synopsis: A kindly 53-year-old widower falls in love with a 23-year-old woman who is unhappily married to a musician. No one in their circle of acquaintances approves of this union, but their love is true. Analysis: Excellent human drama, frequently touching. Actors who play the widower need to have a good feel for New York City/Brooklyn speech patterns. This sensitivity isn't as essential for the part of the woman. All levels. Scenes/Monologues: Male Monologues (1), Female/Female Scenes (1), Male/Female Scenes (2) In addition to basic information about the play (author and publisher), the entry provides you with the story line, a critique of the play, and the number of audition-worthy monologues and scenes it contains. If the description of this particular play piques your interest, your next step is to turn to “Part Six: Male/Female Scenes” for specifics about the selection. This is what you'll see there: The Middle of the Night by Paddy Chayefsky (Samuel French) Drama: Act II, Scene 2, pp. 40-44; The Manufacturer (53) and The (23). After an unsatisfactory attempt at lovemaking, The Manufacturer feels awful that he wasn’t able to perform ually. The is very understanding. He then asks her to marry him. The actor playing The Manufacturer must have a good feel for regional New York speech patterns. This skill is less critical for the actress playing The . Start, The Manufacturer: “I’m sorry, Betty.” End, The Manufacturer: “Oh, my sweet , I love you so much you don’t know. If you change your mind tomorrow, I won’t be angry with you. I won’t lie to you, Betty. I’m afraid.” This entry tells you what type of scene this is (dramatic), where you'll find the selection (act, scene, and page numbers), the length of the scene, the names and ages of the characters, the context in which the characters are speaking, and the first and last lines of the scene. If the material seems appropriate, all you have to do is get a copy of the play and get to work. BecauseThe Ultimate Scene and Monologue Sourcebookenables you to make informed decisions about the suitability of more than 1,000 monologues and scenes-which you can find easily through the book's extensive cross indexes—you’ll gain a critical edge in the auditioning process.
