Post Too Old for Mary?
I'm auditioning for the Secret Garden next month. I'm a mezzo, I'm 14, I have dirty blonde hair, a baby face, and blue-grey eyes. I'm about 5'4". Am I too tall for the role? Too old?

I have a perfect voice (not trying to brag) for the role, as I have a very clear, young, and theatre but still classically trained voice. Will they care that much about appearance?

I wouldn't necessarily say you're too old. I can't fully judge without knowing your build (smaller builds appear much younger than larger builds, obviously). 5'4" isn't exactly an average ten-year-old's height, so some of it may depend on external factors (how you compare to the other characters, who you're up against), but if you have nothing to lose you might as well try!
