Try “Forget about the boy” from Thoroughly Modern Millie or something else Sutton Foster has sung
Some of these, be warned, are things I wouldn’t otherwise recommend for … not this audition. But here we have:
Stranger to the Rain - Children of Eden
Remember This - The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown
The Girl Who Drove Away -The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown
A New Life - Jekyll and Hyde
Happiness - Rooms, a Rock Romance
I’m Not Afraid of Anything - Songs for a New World
Break legs! Let us know how it goes!
It has a very specific character voice, which includes a lisp.
Yes it is. Woe is Me isn’t so much overdone, but it is only appropriate for certain shows/styles/actors because it is character AND vocally altered. Be careful about that one.
Do you mean for a college audition or an audition for a show at a university?
“Everything Else” is and is not too inappropriate. Profanity, in the context of the audition, is ALL about how it sits on you. There are many people who make cursing feel uncomfortable. I’m sure you’ve met people like that! If they say “fuck” or “shit” it just sounds like they’re trying very hard and it’s quite annoying. Essentially, in real life you’re allowed to say whatever you want, but on the stage, if you curse and it doesn’t suit you well, it will lose you the audition.
That being said, I would STRONGLY recommend you NEVER use “Everything Else” as a college audition piece (in fact the same goes for most auditions, except for certain situations). It’s incredibly overdone, very typical “teenage-angst”, and is from a rock musical.
I recommend you choose a song that fits your personality and shows YOU to the directors. That is always the most important thing (and yes, of course, style of the show, etc.) - that can dictate what role they see you best in. The two roles are incredibly different, and thus very few songs will make them thing “Rona or Logainne”. The most important thing is you! Let us know if you want recommendations for one role (or for two more similar roles).
As a female, you should not perform “I’m Alive”, because it is sung by a male character. Though I would not recommend going for Timon unless the creative team has said they are considering women for the role, you should still not sing a song written for a man. Now, that being said, if there is one that fits you and Timon perfectly, which suits your voice well in a key you can find, it may be appropriate. “I’m Alive” is still inappropriate under any condition, because it is entirely unfitting to the character and the show.
It depends on the school. A high school would probably accept it, a college or art school.
You can always email the director and ask.
Depending on your actual age, I wouldn’t go with anything from Evita. However, Jesus Christ Superstar sounds like a viable option as well! “I Don’t Know How To Love Him” would be a great option if you want Fantine. For Mme. Thenardier, if you’re looking at the Wiz, I’d suggest “No Bad News”. Here are some other options for you
1) As Long As He Needs Me- Oliver!
2) Off With Their Heads- Wonderland (definitely more Mme. Thenardier)
3) Fly, Fly Away- Catch Me If You Can
Hope these help!
Sure! How about:
1) My New Philosophy- You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown
2) All ‘Er Nothin’- Oklahoma!
3) Therapy- tick, Tick…BOOM!
4) Suddenly- Xanadu
5) I Think I Got You Beat- Shrek
Hope this helps!
Oh very nice!! How about:
1) The Devil You Know- Side Show
2) Ol’ Man River- Showboat
3) Free at last- Big River
4) Born On The Day Before Yesterday- The Wiz
Hope these help!
I’m baaaack! After being swamped with papers, performances, student teaching, and family ish out the ying yang, I’m back! Also, many thanks to Andrew for holding down the fort. He has been, and will continue to do an excellent job!
Not quite! Jack is more of a simple minded, hopeful character. While the Prince in Cinderella is hopeful, he’s a lot more mature than Jack is. I’d try maybe
1) Not While I’m Around OR Johanna- Sweeney Todd
2) Grow For Me- Little Shop Of Horrors
3) Corner of The Sky- Pippin
Hope these help!
Hi! So fun, for you and your sister to audition together!
1) Fabulous, Baby (Sister Act)
2) Spark of Creation (Children of Eden)
3) That’s Rich (Newsies)
For your sister, I’m truly at a loss. Musical Theatre songs for that age are plentiful enough, but sassy added on … that’s rough. I can’t really think of anything that fits that! I’m so sorry, I’ve looked through everything I have, and even looked online, but I haven’t been able to find anything really. I’m very sorry!
