YouthPLAYS is a publisher of award-winning professional dramatists and talented new discoveries, each with an original theatrical voice, and all dedicated to expanding the vocabulary of theatre for young actors and audiences. Here on our website you'll find one-act and full-length plays and musicals for teen and pre-teen actors, as well as duets and monologues for forensics and other drama competitions. We also have a huge collection of short monologues that are free for use in the classroom and for auditions. Many of our authors' works have been widely produced at high schools and middle schools, youth theatres and other TYA companies, both amateur and professional, as well as at elementary schools, camps, churches and other institutions serving young audiences and/or actors worldwide. Most are intended for performance by young people, while some are intended for adult actors performing for young audiences.
At YouthPLAYS, we're taking advantage of technology to give you more options, options that are environmentally friendly and save you time and money as well. You can order any script on our website in its entirety as a digital file, thus allowing you to get what you need sometimes as quickly as the same day without having to pay shipping costs. Like what you read? You can order performance royalties with a photocopy license that gives you permission to make as many copies as you need for your production. Like doing things the traditional way, with an attractive acting edition that you can put on a bookshelf? Dozens of our plays are available in this form too (with more coming all the time). Any way you want to read them, if you are looking for a diverse collection of entertaining and often thought provoking plays, then search no further.
