SpeechGeek provides high school coaches and competitors with scripts that are not only challenging, but also of strong literary merit. Each issue of SpeechGeek contains five scripts in a variety of events: prose interpretation, poetry interpretation, humorous interpretation, dramatic interpretation, and duo interpretation. SpeechGeek’s interp scripts are written by winning authors who know what it takes to make final rounds at all levels of competition.

This special issue of SpeechGeek material includes scripts published in previous editions. All material in this issue has been screened as appropriate for middle school competition.  Though some scripts may contain limited instances of strong language, the themes of the scripts have been selected as well-suited for middle school performances.

Learning to Fall By Millay McCain

Prose Interpretation

In All Directions By Nancy Harper

Poetry Interpretation

As a single poem or as part of a program, Harper’s exploration of all of life’s random directions and encounters combines crafty wordplay with dramatic vignettes that play out on life’s stage. An accomplished slam poet, Harper’s words leap off the page and are perfect for performance.

Philadelphos By Odell Workman

Dramatic or Duo Interpretation

We each encounter random strangers every day. In that park, in line at a restaurant, and all points in between, we never know which encounter may deepen into a lasting friendship. Though Steve and Gary’s path were separated before, a chance interaction brings them together and saves one of their lives in the process.

Totally Sheltered By Bonnie Minkey

Dramatic Interpretation

Teenagers usually live a life sheltered from the rest of the world. No bills. No job. No worries. When Dalia is forced to volunteer at a homeless shelter, she begins to realize how clueless she is about other people and their needs. Minkey combines wit with an natural tone and voice to create a character and lesson that audiences will surely remember.

Secret Identities By Corey Alderdice

Everyone has a secret identity—not just superheroes. Though teenager Ben Bridges wishes he could soar among the clouds and shoot laser beams from his eyes, he’s stuck being an awkward nerd. Though he’s not the only person with a secret in his school. When Ben is given the opportunity of a lifetime, he realizes the masks we wear aren’t necessarily for heroics.
