Monologues for Actors and Auditions

We understand the difficulty of finding the perfect monologue to audition with. That's why we created the ActorPoint Monologues Directory. We feature over 1200 monologues in categories like Classical, Dramatic and Comedic. We even have tons of movie monolgues and monologues for children. So, feel free to look around. We're sure you'll find a monologue (or two) that's right for you.

We are always adding new monologues and encourage members and visitors to contact us and submit a monologue to our directory.

Except where otherwise posted, the monologues we provide on this site are free to use for teaching and education purposes and/or competitions. View our disclaimer here. Proper credit is given to authors and writers where applicable.

Quick Tips for Choosing a Monologue

**Find a monologue with a character around your age and one that you can relate to.

**Grab a copy of the entire play so you can properly grasp the surrounding circumstances and background of the monologue.

**Choose a monologue that is "active" (ie: one that actively engages the other character).

**"Inactive" monologues are less engaging than "active" monologues. Inactive monologues are more like speeches that simply recount a story.
