Okay, kids, we’re a month away from Halloween and a 9-year-old just told me he read 90% of parents steal some of their kids’ Halloween candy! Do you think your parents are in that majority? Or is your mom or dad in that elite angelic 10%? And parents, do you think it causes no harm to skim a little Reeses Pieces from the tip?
Whatever your stance is, check out what Sal thinks in this Halloween-inspired monologue, where he catches his guilty dad by the kitchen pantry, Skittles’ wrappers in hand! This is a new comedic monologue for children/teens (male or female) actors. And kids, maybe you’ll be reciting a monologue of your own come November 1!
(Parents, stay tuned for your own Halloween-candy inspired monologue coming soon! Gotta write it still!!)

Cause I didn’t think you bought candy at stores. I thought you just bought milk and Band-Aids at stores, and only when Mom asked you to. Not Skittles.
