About the Author

As an actor, Bo Kane has worked in television, films and commercials, most recently in shows such as CSI: Miami, Dexter, The Defenders, Men of a Certain Age, Outlaw, FlashForward, The Unit, and films such as The Ringer, Camouflage, and Man Of The House. He began his career in the 80's, appearing in such films as El Norte, Child's Play, The Phantom, What's Love Got To Do With It (as Dick Clark) and in television shows such as JAG, Melrose Place, The X-Files, Arli$$, General Hospital, The Magnificent Seven, Young and Restless, and many others. As a writer, Bo is a former newspaper columnist, penning "Man's Eye View" for the Sun-Times News Group, and "Hollywood Hoosiers" for The Times. He is also the co-author of "The Wild World Of The Wilders", a tv series in development. Bo has also worked on farms, in steel mills, as a newscaster for CBS affiliates in Colorado and Virginia, and for the U.S. Congress. He was the Head Coach for the Special Olympic Equestrian Team in the San Fernando Valley for many years, and is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame. Aside from his acting and writing career, Bo currently teaches kids' acting classes in Los Angeles. He and his wife, Denise, have two children.

More About the Author

Bo Kane is an actor who loves working with kids. He's directed kids' casting sessions in Los Angeles for over 20 years, and has taught hundreds and hundreds of working actors in his classes.

Bo has guested on television shows such as "Criminal Minds", "Castle", "Workaholics" "Dexter" "90210" "CSI: Miami", Men Of A Certain Age, The Defenders, Outlaw, FlashForward, The Unit, and worked in films like The Ringer (playing Johnny Knoxville's coach), Man Of The House, Camouflage (with Bug Hall). And if you go back to before his kids were born, Bo was on Party of Five, The Phantom, General Hospital, What's Love Got To Do With It (as Dick Clark) and many other shows and commercials.

Bo is also a baseball and basketball coach for his kids, and likens his acting classes to both 'batting practice' and 'being a reporter'. "We give our young actors the story and ask them questions about their character....who? what (does our character want)? where? when? and why? Then we have them get up on stage and hit. A little direction, some encouragement, and then we send them up there swinging again. And because the classes are on-camera, I can show them the results."

Mr. Kane grew up in Indiana, then his family moved to Texas. He's worked on farms, ranches, in steel mills (on the blast furnaces with a shovel and a jackhammer) and in corporate life as a marketing and finance manager. He's been a newspaper columnist (Post-Tribune and The Times) and a news reporter and anchorman(Krex, Wcav, Wvaw, and WHGTV. More 'Ron Burgandy' than Tom Brokaw). Basically, a jack of all trades.

You'll see it in "Acting Scenes and Monologues For Kids!", a collection of original monologues and scenes for 6 to 12 year olds, and in the scenes in "50 Acting Scenes For Teens". The subjects are wide and varied, as are the actions and reactions of the actors. Some are funny, some are dramatic, some make you go "hmmmmm..."

I have been a Theatre teacher, and professional actor and director for over twenty years. This book of contemporary scenes and monologues is a great addition to my curriculum; especially for the beginning performer. All of the scenes are written with attention to TODAYS high school student. They are complete with colloquialisms and situations that contemporary student actors can relate to. Plus, the scenes are not too long. Teaching memorization techniques is easy with these creative, wholesome, and often humorous scenes. As a director, I appreciate the ability to be creative with interpreting the pieces; not one is ever the same as there are so many choices the actors can make. I highly recommend this book as a contemporary addition to any theatre department's scene study library.

I got this book for my daughter who is just starting out along this path. She's enjoyed the book and found it very useful, even using one of the scenes for a monologue for a recent audition.

As the parent of a professional actor, I have bought many monologue and scene study books for my child. Bo Kane's "50 Acting Scenes for Teens" is one of the best acting books for young actors on the market. The scenes are relatable, fun and original. Bo runs one of the top acting classes in Los Angeles for working child actors. His students can be seen in film, television and commercials. These kids know the scenes in this book very well. Some of these kids were even the inspiration for some of the scenes in this book. I have personally seen these scenes performed with my own child and I know they work. This book is definitely the "scene study bible" for the working child actor.

One of the key aspects to learning the skills of acting ... is repetition, especially for a young actor. Finding one's voice and acting style comes from the interaction that only endless script reading and recitation with a fellow actor can bring. That is precisely what this book offers. Mr. Kane's long tenure as an actor and producer in Hollywood and his subsequent time spent as a TV news anchor are brought to print in a very simple, but valuable educational tool.
