Inspire students immediately with these lists of first lines for monologues! There are 20 lines for younger students and 50 lines for older students, and four different ways to use the lines. The lines are set up on the pages so that they are easy to print out, cut apart and use immediately.
Here’s one way to use the lines:
Improvised Monologues (Or Instant Monologues!)
Put lines in a hat and have students go onstage one at a time and draw a line and deliver an impromptu monologue.
Examples of lines for younger students:
I’ve been saving up all summer, and I almost have enough.
I’m not moving, and they can’t make me.
Examples of lines for older students:
Everyone thinks it’s great to be popular. But it’s not.
My best friend told me a secret and she told me not to tell anyone, but you don’t know her, so I can tell you.
