Welcome to MockSidesTM
All MockSides scripts are written by David Dalton & Chad Schnackel
We're pleased to offer FREE original acting scripts specially written for workshop actors. These free scripts for actors are for educational and demo purposes only, however, we now offer them to every actor for use in their acting classes, actors demo reels, and for individual audition practice. We believe we have some of the best scenes for 1 man 1 woman, 2 women scenes, 2 men scenes, 3 person scenes and scenes for young actors. Some comedic scenes, some dramatic scenes, and all written in teleplay and screenplay format (TV or Film scripts). Most of our scenes are for two actors, but we also have scenes for three actors and more. Acting coaches can take advantage of the wide range of categories of free online acting scripts for use in their acting classes.
Just browse the categories, find what you like, click it and print it!
What are MockSides?
Mock Sides is a term we invented to describe custom written scenes that appear as if they had come from actual TV shows and Films. The scripts serve a particular purpose in actor training and are intended to challenge the actor to make educated guesses as to what the whole story may be about. You may notice, the scenes don't have page numbers so you can guess as to where it would in the timeline of the story. We give minimal character description and very little "beat" indicators; this is to allow the actors to make their own decisions regarding their character's history, relationship and subtext. Most of our scripts have no lead-ins from previous scenes or "cuts to" the next scene; we leave that up to the actors to imagine and discuss. Each week, we custom write these scenes for the actors enrolled in various levels of acting classes at DS StudioWorks, that is why some sides are simpler than others. We share our Mock Sides with you in hopes we can help you to develop and expand upon your acting skills.
