Welcome to the YouthPLAYS monologue page. Below are monologues from plays available on our site that you may use at no cost for auditions and classroom work.
How It Works
Please read the instructions carefully and be certain to provide ALL of the information requested in part 1:
1. Email uswith your name (first name only is fine if you're under 18, or feel free to have a parent or teacher write on your behalf; full name if you're 18 or over), name of your school or theatre, city, state/country and the monologue(s) you'd like to use, and please let us know whether you will be using the monologue for classroom work or an audition.
2. We will confirm receipt of your email within 2 business days (so give yourself enough time!), at which point you're good to go. Just be sure to properly credit the author/play title when using the work.
3. If you'd like to read the entire play from which the monologue comes, you can do that, as all monologues are from plays published by YouthPLAYS. Just click on the order link on each monologue's page to order a perusal copy!
4. By using one of our monologues, you grant us permission to add you to the YouthPLAYS newsletter email list. We promise not to email you too often, and we will never share your email with anyone.
5.If you're a student, please tell your teacher or director about YouthPLAYS! If you're a teacher or director, please consider our plays for potential production! Remember, our authors make their income from the licensing of their work for production and the payment of royalties. This allows them to create more great new plays!
Note:You may use these monologues for Thespian adjudicated Individual Events and similar competitions/festivals with the purchase of a digital (or printed, if available) perusal copy of the play from which they come. Simply purchase the perusal copy, then print out the monologue page with this paragraph on it.
We regret that we are unable to provide specific monologue suggestions, as our time and staff are limited, and we feel that it's always best for you to read through our selections and find the piece that best fits you. So let's get to it: read on for a great selection of monologues!
