Acting Aid With
Young Talent In Mind
In drama classes and at auditions, young actors have continually had to resort to performing roles written for much older men and women -- roles that are often difficult for them to identify with or to fully understand. But this innovative scenebook gives younger performers the opportunity to portray characters their own age.
From the classics to the finest in contemporary drama -- from Shakespeare, Shaw, and Chekov to Miller, Williams, and Kopit -- here are sparkling theatrical gems that are perfect for class or theater group study and performance. Complete with thorough character and plot descriptions, Scenes for Young Actors is an absolute must for the talented young beginner and professional alike.
