Post Auditioning for Wolf/Prince
I'm a junior in Musical Theatre at TU and we are doing Into the Woods for our Spring musical. Now, I must be the only Musical Theatre nut on the entire planet my age who has never done ITW or any other Sondheim for that matter, and while I do know of Sondheim and have a good amount of his musicals I'm really having trouble finding music for this audition. My director has specified that the audition must be Sondheim, so I'm basically at a loss. Any suggestions?

Wow, this is so exciting, I wish you the best for your audition.

Hmmm, since you are Auditioning for the Wolf/Prince, I'm guessing you're a Baritone.

So good Baritone Sondheim songs would be-

Epiphany - Sweeney Todd
Any Moment - Into the Woods
Dear Boy - Candide (It should count, Sondheim did the lyrics)

Somebody, need me too much,
Somebody, know me too well,
Somebody, pull me up short
And put me through hell
And give me support
For being alive,
Make me alive.

- Stephen Sondheim

I would suggest you look into some of the Judge's material from Sweeney Todd. Many people see him as being very similar to the Wolf. Question: are you sure the director of the production in question is going to do the traditional Cinderella's Prince/Wolf doubling?
