Selected Short Scenes from "The Golden Age" of TV Drama
Foreword by Cliff Robertson, actor, journalist
Twenty-six scenes of top-notch suspense and character portrayal are gathered in one book to give ninth graders and up the opportunity to do lines originally played by famous stars. The collection provides a wide variety of age levels and character types. There are scenes for all women casts, two character scenes, and scenes which are complete short plays. Each scene is structured to TV production.
Here is the perfect collection for a junior or senior high school's English Play Unit or Drama Club production. There are original, short, TV scenes from the 1950's and 1960's series: "The Web," "Grand Central Station," "Appointment With Life," and "Stars Over Hollywood."
English teachers and drama coaches will find these scenes wonderful for developing acting skills, playwriting ability and TV production knowledge and exposure.
Each scene is presented in its original entirety. The introductory Cast of Characters contains characterization synopsis, and script lines are numbered on each page for ease of reference.
