This book follows the same concept as Mr. Howard's 'Humorous Monologues' entertaining, wholesome, original monologues that are ideal for audition or presentation. They have sophisticated and complicated situations and a level of comedy and action that is similar to the best professional work.
These monologues, more than forty of them, are suitable for auditions, classrooms, workshops, family groups and stage presentations. They cover all of the subjects that teen-agers are interested in such as romance, the first job, learning to drive, playing the piano, exaggeration, flying, clubs, beauty treatments, etc.
All of the monologues are light and entertaining, easy to learn, some short and some longer. Many have dual parts, which may be acted out by one player changing roles, or by two or more players.
Psychologists tell us 'role-playing' helps achieve a wider outlook on life, develops tolerance in the actor for the person being portrayed, creates sympathy for the stage character however comical he might be. Perhaps this is reason for the renewed popularity of monologues but whatever the cause, Vernon Howard's works are being applauded by wider and wider audiences.
