Do you struggle to find appropriate scenes and monologues for young performers? Whilst there are so many plays to choose from, the selection of material for auditions, exams and competitions can often be overwhelming. Monologues and Duologues For Young Performers offers a new collection of original monologues, duologues and scenes for young actors aged seven to fourteen that come ready-made for performance.With more than thirty new pieces for male and female actors of varying ages, these scenes explore a wide range of themes and characters and the accompanying notes suggest a range of activities for both the teacher and the student to help them develop the piece for performance. All the scenes have been tried and tested by young actors and many have been used in LAMDA examinations as well as for Speech and Drama Festivals and auditions. Each scene is accompanied by notes on character, background and setting as well as a range of drama activities and questions to ask as an actor, making it an ideal resource for those taking part in LAMDA and Trinity Speech and Drama examinations as well as for drama competitions, other examinations, auditions and theatre exploration.
