Here is an unusual collection of original monologues to capture the actor's imagination, as well as the attention of the director, casting agent, and audience! This wealth of serious and comic original monologues calls upon actors to tap dance, sing, skateboard, pantomime, ice skate, jump rope, play piano, twirl batons, and much more, while speaking in a variety of dialects, including American Southern, Brooklynese, Irish, German, and others. More than 60 fresh, new audition-length pieces of both comic and serious style that allow actors to display unusual talents. Each monologue calls on performers to use a different skill: sing, dance, jump rope, play musical instruments, ride skateboards, twirl batons, use a variety of accents, and more; other monologue books offer only "stand and-talk" selections. This book offers character profiles and objectives, and prop and costume plots for each monologue. The monologues have a wide range of characters ideal for auditions, scene study, or performance. The monologues are self-contained stories; can be used as an evening of theatre for an audience.
