Acting : Monologues and Song by Madeline Romine

Monologues and Song

Anyone out there can suggest a 2 minute dramatic monologue? I'm looking for something contemporary and not overdone. I have been looking around at the usual websites but I'm drawing a blank for some reason. I also need a song for for this audition and I have a pretty low voice for female so any suggestions would help. Thanks everyone!

You could try one of the old classic from Shakespeare. But they've been done to death, I think many of the casting sites have monologue sections you can access. Might be worth a look.

It would depend on what the audition was for - for the song - but there is a great song for a low-belt female from "A Tale of Two Cities" by Jill Santoriello - it's called "Out of Sight, Out of Mind": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dot-GmGKb5Y

As far as I remember, there's a beautiful monologue in Sarah Kane's "Crave", which is contemporary, that talks about love in a non-corny, realistic way and that might be perfectly recommended for an audition. Check it out! :)

Try whysanity.net for searchable screen monologues, if they're suitable at all.... :)
