ABSOLUTELY ONE NIGHT ONLY—CANNOT EXTEND—THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 6:00-7:00 PM, FINAL PERFORMANCE.
The Oldest Established, Permanent Floating Monologue Night in New York is returning to the place where it all began—the Arthur Seelen Theatre at the Drama Bookshop–AND YOU'RE INVITED FOR FREE!! The Tony-winning theatrical mecca for actors, writers, and stage aficionados, established in 1917, will sponsor an evening of monologues for actors, aged 7-15, taken from Applause Theatre & Cinema Books’ new release:
One On One: Playing with a Purpose, Monologues for Kids Ages 7-15 (view on Amazon at: http://tinyurl.com/oc7vbhq).
The participatory event–for all ages–will bring together young thespians, stage veterans, college world literature students studying Don Quixote, exciting playwriting and directorial talents like Bara Swain, Crystal Skillman, Maria Aladren and actors from MCVTS Theatre School, Dylan Dawson, Steve Fife, Marit Shuman, and Bob Shuman, among others, plus a surprise mystery guest.
They will be celebrating the burgeoning world of youth theatre, so bring a young thespian—or anyone interested in theatre—and join us for a participatory evening of new and classic work. Meet new friends and reconnect with old ones, network, brainstorm, and help get kids INVOLVED WITH THE THEATRE WE LOVE AND THE KIND OF WORLD WE WANT TO LEAVE THEM. Watch new actors, hear amazing writers, celebrate the new book, and join us for goodies and festivities upstairs in the bookstore at 7:00!!!

GETTING THE PART–DRAMATIC PIECES FOR THE
Celebrating the young actor, One on One, Playing with a Purpose introduces over 85 monologues, for ages 7-15. The anthology is drawn from classic repertory, Broadway shows, the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning writers, plays from veteran and up-and-coming dramatists—and even kids themselves! The parts are courageous, funny, heartbreaking, and universal; the characters, contemporary, modern, maybe outrageous, even timeless, and always deeply human. Ideal for students of theatre, youth groups, acting classes, playwrights, and auditioning thespians, the collection includes roles as time-honored as Peter Pan and Juliet, as powerful as Anne Frank and Antigone, and as mischievous as Puck and Huckleberry Finn. Highlighted are Oz extras, fairy tale favorites, pirates, zombies, anime holdouts, and Edith Ann, as well as a Cyclops, a robot, a Jabberwocky, Man-in-the-Moon marigolds, barking sharks, and Hollywood arms.
