I'm auditioning for a show soon, for the first time in over a decade. I need help choosing audition material.

Over a decade ago, when I was a theater actor and frequent auditioner, there were always audition monologues that were known to be tired/used/unhip. I haven't auditioned since the early '00s and haven't kept up with any type of theater, so I'm out of the loop completely on a) what's considered a no-no for monologues and b) the best and most interesting sources for monologues. I have an audition coming up soon, and I'd like to not come off (too much) as a rusty old dinosaur.
You're an actor/director/performer. You audition or cast. Where are you finding your monologues? What monologues are you tired of seeing these days? What classics are still acceptable? I'm still hip to auditioning/acting in general, so I'm just looking for tips on finding and choosing appropriate material. I'll accept all genre suggestions since I plan to audition for other shows in the future. If it helps, I'm a 30something woman. Thank you!
