For the ambitious teen who wants to do more than daydream about becoming a movie star, acting coach/instructor Adra Young has authored another helpful book. With the aid of this manual, you can practice becoming an actor instead of instead of dreaming about it. You can take a major step in the preparation process all actors/actresses must go through on the road to stardom. As the title states, it is Young's second collection of monologues; and like the first, offers vignettes that can be read, memorized, rehearsed, and performed (during an audtion or screen test.) In this collection of more than fifty new readings, Young provides both what to say and what to do- just as a stage or film director might. Each "act" is based on a real-life situation and gives the performer useful guidance in living, as well as acting. Here in one handy book is an accumulation of material that is unique and useable...orginal and provocative...timely and timeless-a treasure for the teen actor wannabe. --Paul H. Wagner: Author of The House Boat Murders
Often, good screen written material for children and young adults is hard to find. Much of what is available is very badly dated. It tends to leave an overly sugary taste in your mouth and it seems so very fake. Adra Young had prepared her second book of monologues to solve this problem. The monologues are relatively short, usually a page or two of text. All of them last under two minutes with the majority being under one minute. Props, when they are required, are generally simple and easy to find everyday objects. The content is varied but every single monologue is based on experiences that children and young adults face in real life. The authencity of the scenarios is powerful. I can see this book being extremely useful for drama coaches but also as tool for in school empowerment and life skills portions of curriculums as well. --Dr. Tami Brady of: TCM Reviews
The Everyday Living of Children and Teens Monologues Volume ll addresses issues that youth and teens face spanning from the simple to the extreme. The lessons and messages that come through in each monologue make the book comparable to a one of the books from the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. The messages are powerful yet they are written in a way that is easy to understand. The language simple, direct and to the point. With each monologue, Adra Young tells an in depth story in two minutes or less. The overarching theme of the book is that when it comes to the youth, there is a need behind every behavior. We often feel that young people just act out to make our lives difficult, but the book gives us an inside look as to what is really behind what we see on the surface. The collection of monologues gives a voice to youth that often go unheard and I not only recommend it for teens but for parents, younger youth, educators and social workers alike. --Monica Marie Jones, MSW
