About the Book:

The Best Scenes for Kids Ages 7-15 from veteran editor Lawrence Harbison, a man who has spent his career championing new and established playwrights by bringing their work into print, contains 50 challenging scenes for kids by some of the finest playwrights. All have subject matter appropriate for production in schools, much of it "serious" and "challenging," which will interest child performers without offending administrators, teachers or parents. Some are comic (laughs), some are dramatic (no laughs), some are seriocomic (some laughs).

There are scenes here by veteran playwrights such as Don Nigro, Jenny Lyn Bader, Eric Coble, Constance Congdon, Arleen Hutton, Jack Neary, Kermit Frazier and Carlos Murillo, and by exciting up-and-comers such as Cassandra Lewis, Reina Hardy, Deanna Alisa Ableser, Martha Patterson, Mark Lambeck and Merridith Allen. Some are from plays, but many are original pieces written for this book. The age of each character is given, but don't let that deter you if you like the scene, as many could be done by kids not that age.
