"GIRLS OF AMERICA, BEWARE!"
Monologue by D. M. Larson
You asked me to be on your show and now you cast me aside. It's Hollywood wolves like you that girls have to be careful of these days. You and your empty promises of fame and fortune. "Be on my television program! I'll make you a star!" Promises! Promises! That's all they are.
Crazy? You're calling me crazy? There! That proves you're a snake! Calling me crazy in front of millions of viewers! Pretending like you don't know me, like you've never seen me before. Girls of America, beware! Remember this face! Don't let his serpent tongue trick you as it did me!

You found me, cast aside, lost and broken. You searched through the rubble to find the severed pieces of my life, and slowly fit them back together again.
Before you, I felt like I was dying. The panic consumed me and squeezed the life from my heart. But I didn't care. When we are weighed down by the torture of hate, we don't fear death. There was nothing to live for... until I met you.
You rebuilt me and fixed what was broken. You made me better and pieced me back together in new ways that improved me. With the right parts, I was reborn... and life felt real... and right for the first time.

"Wishing" - A Romantic Monologue for a Young Woman with a range of emotion from dreamy to serious with hints of a hidden secret - Female (1-2 minutes) - from the published play "The Ghosts of Detention"ISBN-13: 978-1499111309
Okay, I have another compliment for you. The reason I gave you that magic coin is because of all the things you could wish for in this world, you wanted to help those people out there. And I really believe you would help them. So many people say that stuff because they think they have to. They dream of cars and vacations. Then they throw in helping the homeless as an afterthought. But you thought of others right away. And I see you do nice things around the diner all the time. I think your boss knows about the nice things you do. The extra food for people short on money. The little treats for the kids. Little things like remembering people's names and listening to them talk. All that makes this a great diner and keeps people like me coming back for more.. And that's what everyone needs to do. Make their little corner of the world a better place. If we all did that, then things would change for the better.

TIPS FOR NEW ACTORS ABOUT STAGE FRIGHT
The short monologues below are a good way to help you work through your stage fright if this is something you struggle with. By practicing short monologues, it can boost your confidence. There are some great SHORT COMEDY MONOLOGUES and SHORT DRAMA MONOLOGUES.
Don't feel bad about being nervous. Some very famous people had stage fright: Elvis Presley, Barbra Streisand, Meryl Streep and Sir Laurence Olivier.
Stage fright is a challenge a lot of people have. I've acted many times but I still get nervous right before I go on. But once I start performing I totally forget about the people and focus on my character. Focus only on your character and your story. Become that character. If you become the character, then it is this other person up there and not yourself. If you need to face the audience, don't look at anyone. Pick a point to look at in the back of the room and focus on that. Many performers (including myself) use the nervous energy and put it in their performance.
Singer Stevie Nicks explains how this helps her performance rather than hurts it. "If you have stage fright, it never goes away. But then I wonder: is the key to that magical performance because of the fear?" ~ Stevie Nicks
