    One of my former students has an audition at her college for NEWSIES. Any recommendations for a song and monologue. I was thinking Little Shop because she's an alto and it would show she can do a New York accent. She always gives a great audition, by the way, and can play pants roles well. Thank you!

    Hi Taylor! This past thread has some terrific resources that Community members have worked on together.

    Monologue List

    Many thanks to @Alan Strait, @Raymond Palasz, @Phillip Goodchild and others who contributed to this project.

    Alan has also done some work on the Nevada Thespians website to help students locate scenes, monologues, and musical numbers for IE's, this could also be applied to other kinds of auditions:

    Hopefully, one of these will help your student find the perfect audition piece!
