Overview

Sensational Scenes For Kids: The Scene Study-guide for Young Actors! provides 7-12 year-olds with true-to-life comedic and dramatic scenes, all 100% teen tested. Chambers introduces young actors to the challenges of performing original scenes written in true industry-standard style in preparation for professional stage and screen auditions as well as classroom oral language presentations. +30 kid-friendly scenes are incorporated. The foreword by 2-time Tony Award-winning producer Kristin Caskey gives kids clear advice on how to develop a work into a successful scene. A glossary of industry terms, index and bibliography of sensational movie scenes young actors should see are also included as a study aid. The scenes in the book are all original, and focus around the lifestyles and experiences of today's youth.

Kids 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 kids' age, agents search for new talent. Young actors 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 and scenes leads to solid performances with longer pieces. Sensational Scenes for Kids: The Scene Study-guide for Young Actors! is filled with scenes to which young actors can relate with truth. Truth in acting is the essence of a great performance. The scenes written by Chambers Stevens speak with the voice of today's young actor. These scenes, used as a study-guide, and the materials in the Hollywood 101 monologue and commercial books will prepare the young actor for significant auditions in both comedy and drama. The bibliography of films with young actors is invaluable as a technique study-aid. As a publisher of quality material for young performers, we couldn't be more pleased to present this title as the fifth in our Hollywood 101 series.
