DUOLOGUES FOR 6-12 YEAR OLDS
Here are some great duologues – speeches for two characters – for young actors aged 6 – 12 years. These are ideal for speech and drama festivals, exams and audition practice. They would also work well as prompts for improvisation activities in the drama classroom. Many of the duologues have been adapted from play scripts that are available on this website – links to the relevant plays are included – and a couple are completely original. I have also included suggestions for other two-character scripts that would work well and provide a challenge for younger performers. It’s advisable that any students performing in festivals read the whole play script before working on their duologue. Knowing the whole of the text will give young actors a much stronger sense of their character, and their place within the story.
