Acting Scenes for Women
Choosing a good scene to work on for a scene study class or for an acting audition means that you can get the most out of your potential and can give yourself the best opportunity to make some significant growth. Remember, you should always read the play that you are going to do a scene from. So keeping this in mind, here is a list of possible scenes you could do with another female actor. In addition to the name of the play and the author, you will find a link to a site where you can read part of the play to see if it is a good choice for you. When you read each acting scene, you should feel that you would enjoy doing the work to learn the scene, its' circumstances, the plight of the characters, and eventually performing it. If you don’t love the material, your boredom and lack of enthusiasm for it will show through in your execution of it and that will negatively affect your chances of getting cast! So choose wisely…

I want to say you changed my life. I want to be an actress so bad, but i began losing motivation when I couldn't figure out what to do. And then I found you! Thanks to you, I'm taking my first acting classes next month! Yippee!
