Teen monologues can be very difficult to find on the internet. See here below some sites where you can find them. But before I send you to the links here below, it's important for you to first understand why you need the monologue. That's right. Why? You need to know that, because that will make a difference on how you choose it, prepare it and perform it. Let me explain.
Is the monologue you are choosing for a class at school? Is it for an audition? Is it for a play you'll be in? It's important to know that and here's why. If you are just choosing a monologue for a class at school, then it has a different degree of importance than it does if you are going in to audition for a casting director, because you want to pursue acting work. If you want to become an actor, you need to do a lot of other things first my friend in order to have a good chance to be successful. Since this page is about teen monologues and not about starting an acting career, if you are interested in that, you can find out more about it here.
Having said that, let's talk about what you do to prepare your monologue in the best way possible. I'll try to make it simple.
Here are some tips about choosing your teen monologue. You should choose a monologue:
Once you have your monologue, now it's time to the next phase, which is the preparation. One of the mistakes people make is thinking that preparing = memorizing and that's it. That is by far not it. Believe it or not, one of the most important things to interpreting a character is not just the words, but how you interpret those words. So you will want to make sure you study the character and know that person as well as you can. Some of the things you will want to know are:
If you are having trouble figuring out what to do even after reading this, a good monologue coach can help you get ready. Have a look at some of these sites below that have free teen monologues to view. If you dont find what you are looking for there, have a look at some of the excellent books below.
Here are some sites to look at.
You also might find these pages helpful:
If you are willing to pay for teen monologues, you can do that online or buy books. Some people prefer to have a good monologue book on hand at home intead of having to look on line and download. Which one is better? Going back to an internet web site that has free teen monologues or having a real good book with lots of monologues that fit your type? I guess it all depends on personal preference. I personally prefer to have a book that I can pick up and refer to whenever I want without turning on the computer. Check out some good monologue books.
