For all the characters and performers under eight, there is finally a book for you!
To the show-offs, dreamers, and make-believers, To artists, storytellers, and playground yellers, To those who audition and those of dramatic disposition, This is for you! This is for you! This is for you and your best friend, too. This book is for truly young actors-the five- to seven-year-old set. If you've got a natural performer in the house, this book provides some simple pieces for auditioning, horsing around, or performing in the living room. Inside you'll find imaginative "what if " pieces for would-be princesses, cowboys, robots, and superheroes as well as real-life issues like unfair bedtimes, making new friends, and the horrible taste of broccoli. At this stage in life there are lots of firsts, too, like going to a new school and losing your teeth, so there will be plenty of topics for children to connect with. Often, young children are given work written for older actors that is difficult for them to understand and retain. While not dumbed down, this material is comprehensible, relatable, and fun.
