Overview

Magnificent Monologues for Teens: The Teens' Monologue Source for Every Occasion provides 12-16 year-olds with original, performable age-appropriate comedic and dramatic monologues, all 100% teen tested. The author introduces young actors to the joys and how-to's of performing monologues written in true Hollywood industry-standard style in preparation for competitions, debates and professional stage and screen auditions. +40 original monologues are incorporated, each is titled for quick content perusal, easy to understand & requires a minimum of props and works in impromptu settings. Interviews are presented with two veteran casting directors discussing current requirements for teen actors. A glossary of industry terms, index and extensive bibliography of plays are also included as a study aid. Great for oral language classroom assignments, talent shows, competitions, and ultimately, auditions.

Teens are everywhere in Hollywood: stage as well as the big and small screen. There is an ever-increasing need for accomplished young actors who understand the business, the dedication it takes to succeed and the talent and determination to stick it out. As this year's crop of teen's age, agents search for new talent. Teens that have studied their craft have fantastic opportunities to break into acting in a big way. But groundwork must be laid first. Consistent work with commercials, then monologues leads to solid performances with longer pieces. Magnificent Monologues for Teens: The Teens' Monologue Source for Every Occasion! is filled with monologues to which teens can relate with truth. Truth in acting is the essence of a great performance. The monologues written by Chambers Stevens speak with the voice of today's young actor. These monologues, used as a study-guide, will prepare the teen actor for significant auditions in both comedy and drama. The bibliography of plays is invaluable for the young actor and drama coach. Broken down into four parts, the plays range from those any beginning actor should be familiar with, through more challenging plays, then plays for major thespians and finally, a listing of the classics. As a publisher of quality material for young performers, we couldn't be more pleased to present this title as the fourth in our Hollywood 101 series.

This book has given our son the confidence he needs going into an audition. Another great book in the Hollywood 101 series by Chambers.

I love your monologues! At auditions I am always asked where I got that monologue from, and I almost hate to give away the secret! Thanks Chambers, you write like I talk!

This book is a wonderful source for any theatre audition that the young actor may come across. Original material 'they' have not seen before.

I bought my son this book along with the scene book for teens. I think my son memorized every monologue before he went to bed that night! He's really gotten a lot out of this book and, as a mom, I love seeing him with his nose in a book instead of in front of a video game. Both books are terrific.

I am a professional teen actor and this book helped me get an agent. Agents and casting directors expect you to be prepared and working on these monologues got me ready for my biggest auditions.
