Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good for beginning students.  Mar 11, 2004
No, this is not high drama. But, as slices of life, these scenes are good for young students who are new to the world of acting. As a drama teacher, I use these scenes in my beginning classes as simple scenes that inexperienced performers can tackle and in which they can perfrom well. I would not recommend this book for the advanced acting student, except for some scenes in this book and the sequal, that I actually think are very well written and include a lot of depth. This book also helps by providing some good 3 character scenes that are hard to find.
Well, if high school is nonsensical rambles  Nov 26, 2002
I had the unfortunate privilege of reading many of the skits in here, finding them very senseless. Not only do these scenes never happen, but by the end of each short we feel just as we did when it began. Nothing has been accomplished and there never has been that much of a conflict to begin with. The language is too mild, high schoolers do not talk like that. Words and phrases like "Oh my God" are overused, trust me, high schoolers do have a wider vocabulary than that. I have not read the sequel to this book and do not wish to unless for a good laugh, which is all the first book is good for.
Most of these scenes DON'T happen  Sep 20, 1999
Krell-Oishi's book attempts to fill a much needed void in the world of high-school scene study: the need for brief, interesting scenes which teenagers can relate to and are interested in. Unfortunately, almost all of these scenes completely lack active dramatic conflict. Characters generally talk about problems they are having with offstage unseen characters; those on stage are almost all in agreement. As the subtitle states, these are mere "snapshots" of adolescent life. Accurate, but like the average snapshot, not very interesting. Yes, the writer has a good ear for teen dialogue, but she seems to lack a true affection for young people. The characters tend to be drawn as nothing more than charicatures with simplistic motives. High school kids are complex, and I've yet to meet one who was only shallow, or bitchy, or self-absorbed, as most of Krell-Oishi's characters are. As a drama teacher, I'd recommend others to look elsewhere for good scenes for teens.
