Post Male trying out for Leading Player (for an all-girls school)
What song/genre would you recommend for a guy trying out for the Leading Player? How can I convince the director through my audition that the Leading Player should be played by a guy (namely me)? I want to show that I can be mysterious and eccentric like the character, but I also want to outperform any girls that want to be the Leading Player (and I'm sure that there will be many). I have a very good, rich tenor/baritone voice with a high range (Range: G2 - E5 in normal voice, G5 with falsetto). My voice sounds too deep to play Pippin, so I'm confident with my range that I can be the Leading Player, but I'm afraid that the director might cast a girl as the Leading Player because it's an all-girls school. Help! :|

Dear Musicals.Net Posters,

I want to know who would portray PIPPIN in an all-girls production of "Pippin"!! :shock:

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I want someone who's the deviant version of Fred MacMurray, David Tomlinson & William Schallert....but who has the looks of guys like Dan Haggerty, Kris Kristofferson & Tom Selleck.
