Overview

This groundbreaking new series is for truly young actors—monologues, scenes, and technique book for the elementary school set. Each book builds on the one before it, so skills grow as students grow. Often, young children are given work written for older actors that is difficult for them to understand and retain. This material is comprehensible, relatable, and fun. For all the young characters and performers, there is finally a book for you!

And within this series, an exciting collection that breaks down barriers: Square pegs don't fit into round holes. It's that simple.

Specifically for young actors of Hispanic descent, M. Ramirez has written a group of books for second, third, fourth generation immigrant kids who don't often feel included in a lot of the literature they're surrounded with. References to abuelos, abuelas, and other cultural specifics help make these performance pieces a little more accessible to kids who might or might not be speaking English as a second language. all with a specific flavor that will help young actors find their voices and stretch themselves, performing pieces that speak not only about them, but directly to them.

Because of the Latino flavor incorporated into this material, these kids can focus on what they are meant to focus on- performing - without any cultural barriers.

KIDS: These books tell you about how to act and give you some excellent characters to play! There are also many, many games and activities. (P.S. They may also make you the smartest kid you know!)

TEACHERS: This series provides ample material for classroom use. In addition, the Teacher's Guide will give tips and ideas to use inclassrooms.

PARENTS: If you've got a natural performer in the house, this book provides some simple pieces for auditioning, horsing around, or performing in the living room. These books are both fun and educational.

AGENTS/MANAGERS: These monologues are immediate and active, with different emotions and levels within each monologue. Great for auditions.

Wow! Who is that?!" You can transform yourself into fantastic famous and historical people. How? By acting, of course! Inside, you'll see situations that are just right for five- to eight-year olds. (Teachers and parents, there are great ideas for you, too!) Each section is interactive, featuring pictures and games. Get your family and friends involved-can they guess who's who? Jump into another life and let your imagination soar!
