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! Topics include: how to be popular, jealousy, shoplifting, pranks and more.
