9781840021301 | Oberon Books Ltd, December 1, 2000, cover price $16.95 | About this edition: This collection of scenes for young women contains material suitable for actresses in their mid-teens and early twenties, and is ideal for auditions and festivals.

The task of finding scene material for young actors that is within their experiential and emotional plane is a particular problem for the acting teacher. Barbara Marchant has created a valuable reference especially for teachers working with young actors. A Young Actor's Scene Book: A Training Tool is a collection of scenes specifically chosen with the undergraduate actor in mind. The material is based on issues that young people can relate to and which has enough content to make it worthwhile for them and the teacher to work on. Marchant has helpfully arranged the scenes in categories for beginning and advanced students. She has also added a section of style and language scenes for those actors with the requisite skills to tackle them. The book includes scenes from plays by Arthur Miller, Oscar Wilde, Bernard Shaw, Tom Stoppard, and David Rimmer, among others. An invaluable resource, A Young Actor's Scene Book will be useful to teachers in their ongoing quest to develop and reinforce the repertoire of their students. (view table of contents)
