Quality forensics performance material is often difficult to find. 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.

Hitting the Bars by Deanna Markstrom

Dramatic Interpretation

There’s a difference between being a winner and champion, but tell that to teenage gymnastics phenom of Markstrom’s short play. She has the talent but what she lacks—like so many others who have age on their side but not wisdom—is perspective. It’s only when her hopes and goals come to a grinding halt that she begins to realize what life is all about.

The Toychest Chronicles by Natalie Pronk

Humorous Interpretation

Tensions are running high in the toy store with a sale ahead. That’s means bad news—someone is likely on the way to the clearance isle…or worse: the “Everything’s A Buck” store. A great selection for middle school competitors or students or students wanting a squeaky clean selection!

Rodger Dodger by Lindsey Marquette

Dramatic Interpretation

When most kids want a dog, they beg until their parents give in. Some folks, like Abby, just steal one and hope no one else notices. This delightful script provides a look at the lessons learned from both getting and owning a pet. A great script for middle school students that will charm audiences.

The Apology of Socrates by Odell Workman

Duo Interpretation

Tripp Gibson enjoys a life of privilege. A life that he--sadly-- takes for granted. When forced to study a member of the community from outside his circle of wealth and influence, he befriends a homeless man named Socrates. Challenged by the phrase "the unexamined life is not worth living," Tripp begins to learn what it means to grow as a student in the classroom and a student of life.

He Looked Like a Mortician by Corey Alderdice

Prose Interpretation

Leslie Lohman has important date to keep to date, she just doesn't know about it. When Death comes calling, Leslie's time is running out. Death, a neurotic and overworked employee of the Boss, senses there's something different about this encounter that may wind up changing Leslie's life for the better. Alderdice combines wit and situation to provide performers with a humorous prose that is sure to please audiences.
