"A Thing for Nerds" - monologue FEMALE COMEDY (2-3 minutes) from "My William Shatner Man Crush" ISBN-13: 978-1505910155

For the quirky actress, a fun comedy solo script about a girl who prefers the comedy of nerdy guys.

"It doesn't matter how pretty you are, just the fact you're female and like something nerdy makes you very attractive to them. Other kinds of guys could care less about me... But to nerds... I was hot."

"MELINDA STREET" by D. M. Larson



Monologue #1 - approximately 30 seconds

MELINDA
Mind if I step out for a bit, Officer? Just for a second. I promise I'll be right back. Oh, what's the mater, Officer? Am I getting a little too close. Oh, I'm so scared. Little police man's gonna handcuff me. Or is that a game you like to play with the girls?

Monologue #2 - approximately 1 minute

MELINDA
Look, ladies. If you want to act with me you've got to follow a few simple rules.

When I'm on stage, you all back up and give me room. The key is to stay upstage of me at all times.

(Points upstage)

That's upstage. And I will be downstage.

(She wakes downstage regally)

Who is the professional award winning actor here? Me. So let me handle this. The key, girls, is to not steal my light. You'll have your time to play act while I'm off stage.

(reacts to one of the other women and speaks mockingly)

But... But... Nothing. That's the way it's going to be.

Here is a monologue called "MASKED MAN." In this monologue, a little old lady talks about a masked hero who saved a bus full of senior citizens and her love of masked man from her past.

SADIE
Oh, it was so exciting. It reminded me of my senior prom... Or was it the time the bank was robbed? Either way, it was so exciting. I have always loved masked men. I enjoy a bit of mystery. Most men are so simple.... Easy to read. But a masked man becomes a whole new kind of man. One with something to hide. A mystery I must uncover. I miss Roger. He was a mystery. We met one of those costume parties where everyone was wearing a mask. It was his eyes... His beautiful eyes... I could get lost in those eyes forever. I never told anyone this but I know Roger was the one who robbed that bank. I recognized his eyes. And the way he waved that gun around and yelled at people... It was so scary... And exciting. That's always how he was.... Scary and exciting. It was so nice seeing Roger again... Rushing on the bus, being a hero. I like him being a hero too. As long as he is in a mask. I love the mask. Good or bad, the mask is perfect. Please tell him I'm here. That I want to see him again... and give him a kiss.

Monologues from the play "Ebony Scrooge" ISBN-13: 978-1537655239



"My Punishment"

A ghost (MARLA) appears. She has forks, knifes and spoons on chains attached to her (if chains are not possible then either her clothing or on ropes but make sure they rattle and shake for the full effect). MARLA shakes her forks, spoons and knives at Ebony Scrooge.

MARLA
Good times? Good times you say? Our good times cost me dearly. Our good times came with price. A price even you can't afford. I have come to tell you that you will share my fate unless you change. You are like I was before I died... Greedy, corrupt, selfish... And poor. Poor I say! Money does not make you rich. Money is the sin that chokes your soul.

(Holds up tableware)

I have paid heavily for my sins. They weigh on me as I drag them through the afterlife ...carrying them for an eternity. This is my punishment for cheating people.

(Shows EBONY)

The forks are for every time we overcharged. The spoons are for every serving we shorted someone. The knives are for every competitor we stabbed in the back. So many good times we had together. Good times! Good times!

(Shakes tableware in agony)

"The Spirit of Christmas Indigestion"

(Ebony is sitting at a desk with cake, tea and paperwork. She has a pen in one hand and a tea cup in the other)

EBONY
(Takes another bite of cake)

That Roberta has no work ethic, but she can sure bake a good cake.

(Yawns)

What kind of tea is this?

(Looks at label on tea bag)

Sleepy time?!

(Yawns)

That idiot.

(Eyes get heavy)

I have a mountain over paperwork to do.

(Drifts off)

I must get it done...

(Falls asleep on table. A thump in the kitchen wakes her)

What was that?

(Moves toward kitchen L)

Roberta? Are you still here?

(Another thump)

Oh, my goodness. It could be a thief.

(Heavy steps. Takes out cell phone)

I better call the police.

(Hits phone)

Battery's dead? Stupid discount calling plan.

(More thumps. She picks up fork)

I've got a rather large weapon in here and I'm not afraid to use it.

(Hears rattling, moaning, and other spooky sounds. Drops fork)

Uh, was it the tea or the cake that's doing this to me? I swear I'm hearing...

(The ghost of MARLA appears L)

A... A... An Apparition

(Scared)

Go away. I know you're something I ate that I shouldn't have. I need some medicine. Some plop, plop, fizz, fizz, and you'll be gone. Begone foul spirit. I know you're only heartburn.

(Goes and sits)

The only warning I need is on the tea label. Now I'm seeing things.

(Grabs papers and yawns)

Where was I before the spirit of Christmas indigestion appeared?

(Yawns and drifts off. Lights fade to black. Twelve strokes of the clock. And a ghostly sound is heard)

"Greed Killer Her"

EBONY
(Mouth drops open)
Sister Katie? But I just saw her...

(Near tears)

I've known her since we were young girls. We went to school together. I always thought she was crazy for taking a vow of poverty and she thought I was crazy for vowing to get rich. Now she's gone.

(Pause. Starting to get angry)

What was she doing out here this late at night? She was doing her charity work wasn't she? Collecting money for the poor. How could she be so stupid?

(Upset but trying to cover up)

It was greed that killed her.

(She fights back tears)

She had to have more money. It's never enough for her. It wouldn't matter if I gave her a dollar or a thousand dollars. She'd still want more. What do I care? She never did anything for me. I did everything for myself. Useless beggars.

"Steam Train"


Monologue for male or female from "My William Shatner Man Crush" ISBN-13: 978-1505910155


ZORA
Do you ever feel like you're stuck on the front of a steam train going a million miles an hour? Flying down the tracks... so out of control. One slip and you'll be crushed into a million billion pieces. The pressure... Incredible pressure ...your chest pounding so hard your heart wants to break free.... But you feel a little thrill don't you? And you realize it's better than the nothingness of your life before. Is it true? What kills you makes you feel alive? Suddenly you realize this could be the most exciting moment in your life... Flying free down the tracks... An adventure... No clue where you're going or if you'll survive ...but you're living. Really living. Is that why those stars do that... Do something dangerous and wonderful... So explosive... that it will eventually destroy them... Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams... Riding the steam train to their death... Screaming with life? There's no turning back... No middle ground. Once you live... really live... there's no way to go back again. No brakes or safety nets... No getting off the runaway train. So instead of being afraid, instead of seeing it as an end to life... You scream... Bring it on steam train! ... Make me live!



"Without My Beauty"



PRINCESS BEAUTY
Nick, please don't grovel. That's why I liked you. You didn't feel like you had to treat me that way. I'm just a normal peasant girl now. My stupid fairy godmother did this to me. Correction: My smart fairy godmother. She's made me like cleaning.

(Yells out)

It worked, fairy godmother. It worked! I'm happy not being a beauty.

(Looks at NICK)

I never thought I could live without my beauty, but I guess I can.

"The Most Beautiful"



PRINCESS BEAUTY
But, I can't just go back to the way I was. I like my new life. I just don't want to be who I was before. I can never be as good as Honor. I'm still not as beautiful as you are, sister. I don't think I ever can be. I used to think I was the most beautiful woman in the kingdom, but not anymore. Now I think you've always been the most beautiful the whole time, I just couldn't see it. No, Fairy Godmother, don't change me back. I don't think I want my old beauty anymore. It does me more harm than good.

ACTING TIPS FOR NEW ACTORS

The main mistake I see new actors make when performing monologues is that they pick only one emotion and use it throughout the whole monologue.

One example is with the monologue called Demons

When I had actors try the Demons monologue, several selected one sad or angry emotion and used it throughout which made it a boring performance. The best performances were the ones who selected different types of emotions for different parts of the script. Even though the whole monologue is sad, there are elements of anger, fear, hurting, desperation, madness and even love. The actors that found different emotions to use in different parts were the most interesting and enjoyable to listen to.

"WORSE OFF"

Copyright (c) 2017 All Rights Reserved

***
GRETTA

Why did you leave me here?! I didn't ask for this. You drag me on some adventure and then drop me off with no clue how to get back. That's just great. Wonderful! I'm so glad I was spontaneous and rushed off for something exciting and mysterious.

How could I be so stupid?! I didn't even know you that well. Sure, you were cute... and fun. And made me laugh. But I didn't really know anything about you. You offered me something I never had before though... freedom. I was trapped in my life. I didn't think there was ever a way out.

It's strange how easily we get trapped in our lives. You get things you want, but then you become a slave to those things, having to make payments, having to keep them repaired, and then paying more money to fix or replace them. Nothing is ever paid for. Or on those rare occasions where you do pay something off, then it breaks soon after, or some new flashy model comes along that you have to have.

I guess that's what you were. You were some flashy new model that got my attention and offered me something better. But that's all you were... flash. Flash and no substance. You gave up on me like everyone else. Gave up and left me here... alone... worse off than when I started.

Am I worse off though? You did show me some amazing things that I'd never seen. I did feel more alive than I ever felt before. My old life left me feeling dead. But you made me live... and live well... even if it was for a little while.

There you are! Where have you been?! I thought you left me. This? I was just making a recording... it doesn't matter. What matters is you and me and today. Where are we going next?
