More Short and Sweet Skits for Student Actors
by Maggie Scriven
This follow-up to Short and Sweet Skits for Student Actors features fifty more in the same vein as the first volume. Simple, fun skits, all of them very easy to produce, feature positive and upbeat messages. Most of the selections feature present-day school scenes with two or three friends in conversation. Kids will relate to issues such as homework, restrictions on cell phone use, having to clean one's room, etc. A few sillier pieces where students play animals such as disgruntled deer, lazy lions or confused houseflies are sure to get laughs. While the collection would benefit from a bit more organization, (arranging scenes by number of players, for example) educators looking for additional classroom scripts for scene study will find this hodge-podge of humorous and squeaky-clean original material handy. The book is prefaced with useful resume and headshot advice for budding actors.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
