Great Scenes and Monologues for Children Ages 7-14 (Young Actors Series) Vol. II

The much awaited second volume to Slaight and Sharrar’s Great Scenes and Monologues for Children expands the compelling dramatic material available for young actors ages 7 to 14. The selections – taken from both contemporary and classic plays, myths and legends, and fairy tales – offer a wide variety of styles and themes to challenge children and their teachers and directors. Among the playwrights represented are Timothy Mason, Y York, Steven Dietz, Paul Zindel, Louis Sachar, Suzan Zedar, Contance Congdon, Lynne Alvarez, Alan Ayckbourn, Sarah Daniels, Christina Reid, Naomi Wallace, and Wole Soyinka to name only a few. Of particular interest, the collection features scenes and monologues from plays developed by the internationally renowned Young Conservartory at American Conservatory Theater (where Slaight and Sharrar are in residence) and London’s Royal National Theatre.
