Tell it Like it is: Fifty Monologs for Talented Teens

Front Cover
Meriwether Pub., 2007 - Drama - 117 pages
A thought-provoking new collection of monologues by best-selling author Peg Kehret! Each monologue creates a moment of recognition that makes both the performer and the audience smile -- and think! Most are structured to provide insights of discovery to reveal who we are and why. Every young actor performing one of these monologues will recount a memorable event that opened the way to maturity. But there's more than just provocative thoughts in this collection -- many of the monologues can be performed for laughter alone. All monologues are easily adaptable for boys or girls. Sample titles include: 'I Need a Cell Phone', 'Toto Tells the Truth about Oz', 'The Day I Was a Dog', 'Remembering Little Rock', 'The Four-Part Plan for a New Me', 'Taking the SAT' and 'How to Be Proactive in Maths'.
