Ten-Minute Plays for Middle School Performers
By Rebecca Young

Many middle school performers are uncomfortable taking the stage by themselves.  Who can blame them?  Acting solo can be very intimidating!  That’s why these ten-minute plays are perfect for younger actors...  and they’re royalty-free!  Ranging from duos to groups of up to seven, the 18 plays in each book offer short, age-appropriate material and themes that reflect the interests and issues of teens today.  With a wide variety of material to choose from, some will make you laugh, others will make you cry, and some will do both!  Don’t worry about inappropriate language — these books were written with teachers and students in mind!  These plays all stand alone and many parts are gender flexible, so whether you’re just doing a staged reading without props or costumes or staging a complete production, you can make any of these plays work for you!

(129 pages, 5½ x 8½, paperback)
