"A Thing for Nerds" free comedy monologue script for female actress

Here is a humorous monologue for a woman actress from an upcoming play that I might call "My William Shatner Man Crush."   Still working on the scripts (and the title) but I have been sharing some of the monologues as they develop.

If you would like to use this monologue, contact doug@freedrama.net with the title "A Thing for Nerds" in your request.

********

"A THING FOR NERDS" by D. M. Larson

JENNY
I've always had a thing for nerds. All kinds ... Geeky, Weirdo, Freak, Techie, Trekkie or Dork... you name it... I want to catch them all.. Sorry for the Pokemon reference... I am a bit of a nerd myself. Girl nerds are rare but we do exist.

I hung out with nerd-lings as a kid. We played Dungeons and Dragons and I loved being dungeon master ...holding their fates in my hands. It doesn't matter how pretty you are, just the fact you're female and like something nerdy makes you very attractive to them. Other kinds of guys could care less about me... But to nerds... I was hot.

The more I hung out with boy nerds, the more I realized the power girls have over them... There's nothing they want more than First Contact with the female of their species.

But with great power comes great responsibility and I tried not to take advantage... Much.

And the best thing about nerds is that they give you their full attention. Pretty boys are too worried about their looks and compete for fairest of them all... With pretty boys there is always a fight for the mirror. With tough guys and jocks... They always want praise or worship. It's all about them and they turn romance in to a competition ... (Does body builder impression) Who is the lucky girl who gets me today?

Nerds are the kindest kind of guy. They have the best hearts... If you get past the over drawn comic book heroines and the overly aggressive Sci Fi babes... They really care about you and who you are.

You get a nerdy guy's full attention. The rest of the world slips away and you're his entire universe, because no Death Star, Tardis or warp drive is more exciting than a girl who gives him the time of day. That's why I like these guys... I feel special... important... and not alone anymore.

"Steam Train" monologue for male or female (topics: fear, adventure, the future, celebrities)

The monologue can be used by a male or female even though it is a female part in the play.

"Steam Train" by D. M. Larson

Monologue from the upcoming play "My William Shatner Man Crush"

Please request permission before using this monologue from doug@freedrama.net and include the title in your request "Steam Train."

*****

ZORA
Do you ever feel like you're stuck on the front of a steam train going a million miles an hour?

Flying down the tracks... so out of control. One slip and you'll be crushed into a million billion pieces.

The pressure... Incredible pressure ...your chest pounding so hard your heart wants to break free....

But you feel a little thrill don't you? And you realize it's better than the nothingness of your life before.

Is it true? What kills you makes you feel alive?

Suddenly you realize this could be the most exciting moment in your life... Flying free down the tracks... An adventure... No clue where you're going or if you'll survive ...but you're living. Really living.

Is that why those stars do that... Do something dangerous and wonderful... So explosive... that it will eventually destroy them... Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams... Riding the steam train to their death... Screaming with life?

There's no turning back... No middle ground. Once you live... really live... there's no way to go back again. No brakes or safety nets... No getting off the runaway train.

So instead of being afraid, instead of seeing it as an end to life... You scream...

Bring it on steam train! ... Make me live!

"OW!" a scene for 3 actors featuring Pinocchio

This scene is from the play "Holka Polka" by D. M. Larson http://freedrama.net/polka2.html

For permission to use "OW!" (scene for 3 actors) contact doug@freedrama.net

****
"OW!" a scene for 3 actors featuring Pinocchio

(PINOCCHIO enters. He has a huge nose)

PINOCCHIO
What a nice day for a walk.

BRENDA
Actually I made you want to do that.

PINOCCHIO
You made me? Like with magic?

BRENDA
Yes. I'm a witch.

PINOCCHIO
I know magic too. (Grabs his nose) Ow.

WOLF
What's wrong?

PINOCCHIO
Uh, nothing.
(Grabs his nose again) Ow.


WOLF
Your nose hurt?

PINOCCHIO
A little.

BRENDA
What can you tell me about the Prince?

PINOCCHIO
The Prince? Mr. Sleepy?

(Laughs)

BRENDA
Do you know how might have put him to sleep?

PINOCCHIO
Nope. (Grabs his nose) Ow.

WOLF
You sure you're okay?

BRENDA
So you don't know how the sleeping spell happened?

PINOCCHIO
Nope. (Grabs his nose) Ow.

BRENDA
You know something don't you?

PINOCCHIO
I promised not to tell.

BRENDA
Tell what? You know who did it?

PINOCCHIO
No. (Grabs nose) Ow. Oh, man. I'm going to get a nosebleed again.

BRENDA
Please, tell me what you know. We can help.

PINOCCHIO
Help? You want to help that stuck up good for nothing brat? Oh, he makes me so mad. "I'm so handsome. Everyone love me for it." I'm way better looking than he is.
(Grabs nose) Ow.

WOLF
Tell you what you know or...

PINOCCHIO
Or what?

WOLF
Or I'll eat you.

(WOLF jumps on him and bites his arm)

PINOCCHIO
Get off!

WOLF
Hey! You taste like wood.

PINOCCHIO
That's because I'm made out of wood.

WOLF
Really bad tasting wood.

BRENDA
You're a wooden boy?

PINOCCHIO
No, I'm ginger bread man. (Grabs nose) Ow! (Yells at an invisible someone in the sky) That was sarcasm.

WOLF
What's with your nose?

PINOCCHIO
Nothing. (Grabs nose) Ow.

BRENDA
Tell us what you know about the Prince so we can help him.

PINOCCHIO
Like I want to.

BRENDA
Perhaps you're the one who did it. Maybe we'll take you to the authorities and let them question you.

PINOCCHIO
Fine, fine. Tell you what. The person who you really want cast a spell on me so I can't tell anything about it. But what if I bring the Prince to you?

WOLF
Can you do that?

PINOCCHIO
Sure. I'll sneak him out and bring him here. Then you can do your little witch thing and wake him up.

WOLF
Can you, Brenda?

BRENDA
I could try. Why can't I just go to the castle and do it?

PINOCCHIO
You think they'll let a witch anywhere near the castle after all the bad PR you've had?

BRENDA
Good point.

PINOCCHIO
I'll be back.

BRENDA
Thank you.

PINOCCHIO
Happy to help. (Grabs nose) Ow. (Exits)
