Kids Monologue of the Month
Tips for preparing a monologue:
Break a leg! (That's theater talk for "good luck." It's bad luck to say "good luck" in the theater so you say "Break a leg!")
Here's a monologue for Aug:
Just because it’s hotter outside than the devil’s residence, my dad insists on keeping the house cool. Not just cool, COLD. The air conditioner is kept on night and day. The ceiling fan is going. Every room has a fan. “To circulate the cool air,” says my dad. We could take the food out of our fridge and unplug it. We keep the curtains closed. “To keep the heat out,” says my dad. I’m living in a cave. Not just any cave, a cave in the northernmost regions of the world. I’m living in a cold, dark cave. Even if I turn on all the lights in my room, I can’t see everything in the dark corners. “Turn off the lights,” says my dad, “you’re wasting electricity.” So I use a flashlight in my cave, which helps even less than my lights. Sometimes, I just take me and my books and Legos outside so I can get light and warmth. And within 30 minutes, I’m so hot I return to the cave to get cooled off. I can’t wait for winter.
