9780692527566: Fantasy Monologues for Young Actors: 52 High-Quality Monologues for Kids & Teens
From the Publisher:

By author of the best-sellingContemporary Monologues for Young Actors!

Award-winning NYC playwright Douglas M. Parker has created a new volume of refreshing monologues that explores the fantastic side of a young person’s imagination.

From magical creatures, to time-travel, to life on Mars, Fantasy Monologues for Young Actors offers 52 comedic and heartfelt monologues that will tap into every inch of an actor’s creativity. These monologues were created specifically for actors and acting students ages 7-14 and for the teachers, directors and acting coaches who work with them.

These monologues feature: 

  • A broad range of unique circumstances and emotions: comedic, inspirational, heartfelt, pompous, lonely, curious, etc.
  • Gender-neutral, so every monologue could be performed by a boy or a girl
  • Emotional arcs and strong outcomes to challenge your actors and keep audiences engaged
  • Modern day topics with contemporary language that really relate to kids today
  • Perfect for auditions, as short performance pieces and for use in the classroom

Here are two sample monologues from the book:

SMART

OK. So think about it. A pill that makes you super smart. Like Einstein Smart. Like totally super-mega genius you-can-do-anything smart. You just take this pill and you’re like . . . smart. So I started, like, totally taking chemistry and biology just to invent this. To make the world, you know, a better, way smarter place. But I ran into, uh, I guess like research slash learning curve issues. I mean, like, I can’t even understand, like, a single word of what they say in class. Not one word. How ridiculous is that? And then I figured out my mistake. I should’ve invented the pill first and then started taking the classes. Oh well – live and learn.

ONE WISH

(Your character is a genie.)

The bottle I’m trapped in is made of blue glass. And if you picked it up and stared through the glass, you would see what looks like a tiny blue genie. Just one. Just me. Looking out . . . From inside the bottle, staring out through the glass, the whole world looks blue. I see a blue sun over a blue tree, surrounded by blue clouds. Blue dogs run past me. And blue dust blows by and buries the bottle. But once in a while – not once every few months or every few years, but once every few centuries, someone finds the bottle. Finds me. And if they’re smart enough, or if they don’t like dirt, or sometimes even just by accident, sometimes someone rubs the bottle. And I get to come out. I get to breathe the air. Feel the wind. And see a yellow sun, floating between white clouds. It’s the best, worst moment you can ever imagine. Because I can grant anyone in the universe three wishes, but I can’t even grant myself one. And all I want is the simplest thing in the world – to just walk away. Leave the bottle. And just be free . . . I don’t understand it. Every single person that finds me already has everything I’ve ever wanted and all they want is . . . more. Not one of them ever bothered to ask if they could set aside one wish and do the smallest, the biggest, the only thing in the world for me. Set me free.

You make one mistake and people never forget it. Seriously. I mean, yeah, Jack [or Jill] and me went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. And, yes, one of us fell down and broke his crown and yeah, yeah, the other one came tumbling after. And no - we did not bring back any water. We did not succeed in our mission. And, if I was to be totally honest, we also lost the bucket. But come on. It wasn t like we went up the hill to save the planet from an alien invasion. There wasn t a baby up there about to be eaten by a bear. It was water. We fell down. We didn t come back with a pail of water. Someone else got up out of their chair, got a bucket, climbed up the hill and fetched a pail of water. Big deal. Life will go on. And just to set the record straight, I am perfectly capable of fetching water. I personally have fetched hundreds of pails of water, both before that incident and after. So has Jack [or Jill]. It was one time. Sheesh. Maybe it s time we all moved on. ONE DAY The less there is of something, the more precious it is. Olive trees can live for two thousand years. Giant tortoises for a hundred and fifty. And us mayflies? Twenty-four hours. How amazing is that? A whole life in a single day. You re born at five in the morning, just as the sun starts to color the sky. You get one sunrise, but it s a moment that lasts almost forever, casting a golden light across your entire childhood. You leave home at six a.m., then spend hours just exploring the world. And you can fly! Think of it - unlimited freedom in a world where every moment is a day and every perfect minute lasts a month. Years of morning light and summer breezes in a single hour. By eight or nine, you ve made friendships that will last a lifetime. A passing cloud changes the face of the world. And always, there s more to see, more to do, more to live as you fly high above the water. By three you ve fallen in love, and by four you have a family. Soon the sun, which has been with you always, begins to set. That soft, half- forgotten golden light of your childhood returns. Your own children fly away and newer, smaller suns appear as the night surrounds you. And always, so much left to see. So much left to do. For the first time in your life, the air goes still. The moon rises and explodes with a cool, white light. And still, so many hours - so much life - is left. Who knows what strange, new things could happen next? With so much time. So much life. So many possibilities. All in a single day. Nº de ref. de la librería APC9780692527566
