Editorial Reviews

Stephen Peithman
The needs of young actors are met with two different collections. 111 One-Minute Monologues: The Ultimate Monologue Book for Middle School Actors, Vol. III by L.E. McCullough, is the latest in a series that deals with situations, emotions and characters representative of modern adolescence. It's nicely done in all respects. [ISBN 1-57525-419-0, $11.95, Smith & Kraus].

Also of interest is the Teens Speak series by Kristen Dabrowski, which offers one- to two-minute pieces that follow six very different characters through various scenarios, including dealing with friends, family and school. The use of repeating characters is a nice touch, since we get to see these people from different angles, in different situations. The three most recent titles are Sixty Original Character Monologues for Boys Ages 13-15 [ISBN 1-57525-413-1]; Sixty Original Character Monologues for Boys Ages 16-18 [ISBN 1-57525-415-8]; and Sixty Original Character Monologues for Girls Ages 13-15 [ISBN 1-57525-412-3]. Each volume from Smith and Kraus is $11.95.

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-In each of these titles, the characters are briefly introduced and the one- to two-minute selections show the teen in different situations-at home, in school, talking to friends, etc. Offerings are designated as comic, semicomic, or dramatic to assist the person auditioning, but some readers might question these labels after reading the pieces. Many of the selections follow a thin plotline, allowing actors to get a better feel for the teens as they read an entire section. Some characters have a clearer voice than others, but for the most part these monologues will provide refreshing alternatives to the standard audition pieces directors and drama teachers have become accustomed to seeing and hearing year after year.-Betty S.

Meet characters like J Mackett, an athlete and a natural at everything, except when he's in the lingerie department with his Mom and runs into a girl from school. Or Lash Parker who's had to take care of himself most of his life--it's no wonder that he's a suspicious character who's ready for a fight. All the characters have wildly diverse personalities from one another and their own unique perspective on the world. You can choose from one that's most like you, or challenge yourself, and pick one that is completely different from you.
