Here are some Monologues you might use for your audition.  Remember check with Mr. Doggett as he has many other monologue sources.  

I word of warning, some of these monologues will need to be cut for time and content.  Not all the monologues will be acceptable for use on stage -- use your best judgment or ask Mr. Doggett

The most important thing you should do when picking a monologue is picking something you like.
