I think your message might require some more information - whats your age range and type? You'll need monologues that reflect your age and character type. So some more information would be helpful. I am sure there are MANY actors who are members here and in the same age range as you, who could provide the information you are looking for. Good luck - and if you are in NY - check out the Drama book shop. It has anything you could want on the subject.

You have no buisness wasting the auditors time with two monolugues that you have not worked on for more than 24 hours. Skip this audition or use something you already know.
PEACE.

Suellen is right.

After you skip your audition, check out the Laramie Project, Arcadia, Angels in America.
Stop worrying about what I'm doing -- focus instead on what you're eating.

boy - you guys and gals sure hit the nail on the head and why didn't I think of that?LOL...yes - don't go unprepared to an audition - and never do a monologue from a show that you haven't read from cover to cover - it gives you SO much more insight into the character, even if you've never seen a production of the show - read it - over and over again - my acting teacher always called it "Sherlock Holmes-ing" the script...look for all the clues -like what other characters say about the one you are portraying, for example....its all in the writing.

well, i did the audition, and luckily i found a monologue i did a year ago that i remarkably still remembered. i had no intention of going to this audition so poorly unprepared, but our director had the audition moved just so four of us could make it. i was guilted into it. it wasn't bad, but i know it wasn't my best. oh well, they only take seven kids in the state anyway. as for not being prepared, its terrible, but adreneline does have its merrits. i did a dramatic interp. for forensics this year from Sam Shepherd's "A Lie Of The Mind" (read it. even if you don't like shepherd, this play is worth looking at.) which i was handed the night before the performance. i don't know how the hell i did it, but i made it to states. there is such a thing as luck!!!!!
