Booklist Review

Gr. 9-12. The editors, two faculty members of San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater, have crafted a worthy companion to their Great Scenes for Young Actors from the Stage [BKL N 1 91]. Offering 84 selections drawn from contemporary and classic stage plays and nontheatrical literature, their diverse collection can be used as a guide for auditioning as well as a handbook of scenes for practicing basic acting techniques. A brief synopsis of each monologue and its original source are included in this outstanding work for interpretive study. Authors Lanford Wilson, Paul Zindel, Studs Terkel, John Updike, and Marsha Norman are among those represented. ~--Mary Romano Marks


School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-A fresh and challenging collection, ideal for classroom or practical use, this eclectic volume offers more than 50 speeches. A few of them contain language that ventures into mature territory, but most teens will find everything here very accessible. The brief but fantastic introduction includes intelligent advice on how to best make use of the material and to handle auditions professionally. A helpful appendix gives contact information for copyright permissions to those seeking to produce paid performances, but all of the speeches are royalty-free for auditions or study. With selections culled from playwrights such as Shakespeare and Shaw, Beth Henley and Christopher Durang, as well as from exceptional new talents, this is a volume that theater professionals and librarians will definitely want to have.-Madigan McGillicuddy, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
