The best book ever for kids who want to act :)

Christmas is coming so what better time than now to give my book a plug. What an awesome little stocking filler this will make for the Dramatic child in your family!

If you are looking for scripts for kids, this is the book to buy, says she with no bias whatsoever :)

I wrote this, as I found it really difficult to find scripts for my students that were relevant to today. I'm sorry if I offend anyone, and I loved Enid Blyton when I was growing up, but I have had enough of scripts about fairies, witches, cats and princesses!!! My scripts are mostly set in homes, schools, playgrounds or shopping centres. The characters are all real; students, friends, parents, teachers, shop keepers or bullies.

You'll find over 60 scripts in this book, all 2-4 mins length. Perfect for live performances, roleplays, short films, showreels and auditions. The scripts are easily adapted to male or females and I really concentrate on developing strong characters, especially in my monologues. I have aimed the scripts at kids from 7-18 years old.

I have 2 children of my own so I know  what they say, how they act and what interests them. From my experience, all the kids who use my scripts have really related to my characters and their situations. It gives me a real buzz to go to festivals and eisteddfods and see complete strangers performing my scripts. This is all the proof I need to know that I have pitched to the right market.

For teachers, I have explored various themes in my book, including bullying, trying to fit in, and parent child relationships  as well as over 20 improvisation starters. Watch my video here as I give you tips on other ways you can utilise the book.

Go visit amazon to grab a copy today and they'll ship it to you right away. If you live in Australia, shoot me an email on this link, HI ANNA and I'll send you a copy.
