Book Description

21 Sep 2006
Do you know a teen that's been bitten by the acting bug? Here's just the book they need! "Acting for Young Actors", aimed at teens and tweens, lets kids hone their skills and develop their craft. It begins with the five W's: Who am I? What do I want? Why do I want it? Where am I? When does this event take place? Sounds basic - but many young child actors are told simply to "get up there and act." This book explores each of these questions, using helpful exercises to allow young actors to work through problems of character identity and motivation. With comprehensive chapters on auditioning, rehearsal, and improvisation, plus a primer on how young actors can break into film, theatre, and television, "Acting for Young Actors" is every kid's ticket to the big time. It is aimed at teens age 12-18, and is written in a full accessible style.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
But a name can't tell us everything about a person-haven't we all known people whose names don't suit them at all? So your name is only the beginning, especially if it's a famous name, like Romeo, for example, a name about which we all have ideas and associations. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Acting for Young Actors 18 Dec 2010
By Joadka
Format:Paperback
Bought this for a ten year old actor in the family. I wanted something readable for her age group, (although she has a reading level several years above her chronological age). Good tips about analysis of roles etc. Interesting quotes from actors, producers and directors. Will give this for Christmas.

This book is a must-have for every budding actor in their youth. I found many of the passages in it useful and helpful. The very important bit's were getting into the role for me, but it wouldn't be very useful for people in their teens who wish to be an actor when they're OLDER, (it's more of a child star's guide). Apart from that you could find some very useful acting tips in this, and there is some very useful advice on the business of acting!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a GREAT book! 18 Sep 2006
By Abe Carnow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a fantastic investment for anyone with any interest in acting. Whether you're an experienced actor or one just starting out, this is a GREAT book--so good, after just one chapter of it, I felt like I had been taking acting classes for years. Written with young adults in mind, this book shows what it means to act and all the things you need to know to become a good actor in a way that is both simple and sophisticated, so it's appropriate for any age. It's a book that you can easily pick up and just read a part of when you need help (but it is fun to read all the way through!) I've learned so much from this book and I can't wait to put it all to use!
