Post Cinderella Audition and Stepsisters Question!
Ok, I'm auditioning for Cinderella soon and I need an audition song. I've got a pretty good voice and I'm mature looking for my age so I could get any role. Are there any songs you could recommend?

And how common is it to have the Stepsisters played by men?

Previous Roles:

Peter Pan: John Darling
Alexander..etc: Nick
Wizard of Oz: Prof. Marvel/Guard/Wizard
Into the Woods: Narrator/Mysterious Man
Aladdin Jr.: Genie


Bye, Bye Birdie: Albert Peterson

Seeing your previous and upcoming roles, you seem to have a great acting range. If you are a character actor, I would go for the Herald, who sings "The Prince is Having a Ball". He is a great role with quite of bit of comedy if you have the right comedic timing.

As far as songs go, if you are to do songs from the show, I would do either "The Prince is Having a Ball" or "Ten Minutes Ago". If you are to perform a song that is not in the show, anything from Carousel or Oklahoma! would be great, since they are both R&H as well.

I have heard of the stepsisters, and sometimes even the stepmother being played by men for added comedic relief, however, if there are a lot of girls who audition and/or your director is so inclined, those roles will most likely go to the females.

I hope this help! Be sure to let us know what role you get, but I'm gonna say the Herald or the Prince, just cause I like to see if I'm right!
