Post dance 10 looks 3???
Hey,
I'm 17 and trying to sort out some new audition songs.
the style of the song and the vocal range is exactly what i want...

But i dont know how it would come across in an audition seeing as im 17, and clearly havn't had enhancment on my 'tits and ass'!!!

Sorry, I think I would shudder to see this performed by a teenager.

What about the style of this song is so perfect? Maybe there are others more appropriate that would work.

Sure there are always exceptions . . . I saw a high school production of ACL a while back and the Val was THE best Val I've ever seen . . . maybe I'm biased because later on, we became really good friends, but at 16, she was definitely the best Val I've seen and I've seen at least 7 other Vals . . . it really depends. You'll prolly have trouble pulling it off, but it really all depends on who you are.

If you're looking for something fun, what about "Shy" from OUAM? It's loud, brassy, and really fun to perform, and in a comfortable range for most singers.

I actually used this as an audition song once, and everyone I talked to seemed to think it was a good idea. I must have checked with the choir director 10 times to make sure it was ok. She said that she really liked the song, and was very ok with it. I picked it because I think it is a hysterical song, and I wanted to be unique and different in my audition. Maybe I need a new audition technique... :(

Well, it obviously all depends on what part you're auditioning for. In this case, Ursula is not a "tits and ass" kind of character.

General rule of thumb: Never audition with ANYTHING that may even REMOTELY offended someone. Never. Ever. There's no reason to shock people at auditions. They will not remember except to think, "Wow, she really doesn't know enough musicals to pick something more appropriate." You'll look like an amateur. Don't do it.
