Post Recommended audition song for a male in Evita?
I'm a freshman and Illinois State, and this spring will be the first productions I'm eligible for. The musical is Evita. I like the show, and would like to make it, even supposing I'd just be an ensemble role. If it makes any sense though, I'd also like to exude some Che. Though there's no way in hell I'd get that role as a non-major freshman, I'd like to suggest the fact that if I were older or more experienced it would be possible. I want to show potential.

Can you think of any audition songs for a 19 year old, 5'8'', thin, dark haired second tenor? I've considered the following: the title number from "Martin Guerre", "Why Should I Wake Up?" from Cabaret, "Anthem" from Chess, and even *gulp* "Gethsemane".

Anybody have any other suggestions? Just a good, more youthful tenor song with a hint of bitterness, perhaps.

Les Misérables: Marius (u/s Javert)
Damn Yankees!: Van Buren
It Is a Wonderful Life: George Bailey
The Pirates of Penzance: The Pirate King

Some people on her have compared Che's role to that of Judas or Joe Gillis. Maybe that helps!?!?

How about some stuff from "Whistle down the wind"? "The man" has some songs that I could see Che singing. "The nature of the beast" might fit if you can find a version minus the lines from Swallow.

In search of male voices for a new concept album. PM for details.
