Here are 12 monologues which capture the gut feelings of teens, their longings, dreams and wishes as well as their frustrations of trying to reach for the stars. From Wendy, who'll do anything to look good as Duane's girlfriend, including vomiting the food she eats, to Michael, the class valedictorian whose inspiring words don't begin to tackle the problems new graduates face, we see the idealism of teens and their first look at reality. Some subjects include fame, drinking, shyness, and others. An excellent resource.
Desperate for Magic originally was written as a one-man show. Dressed in black pants and a black T-shirt, I played all of the characters, male and female. Very few props were used. And there were no costume changes. The transitions between scenes were done with lights and I had to convey the character changes using only my body. Since the original production other directors have added actors to play the different characters. Sometimes girls have played the guys' parts and vice versa. Some directors have used a lot of costumes. Some have kept with the original intent.
