Post Please reccomend a part for me!
Hello!
My theater is doing "Anything Goes" next spring, and auditions are coming up!
I can dance very well (tap, jazz, ballet, etc.)
I'm a pretty good actor
And my singing is not too good
I'm 5'5'', have blonde hair, and I'm pretty little
Does anyone know of a part my experience would fit into?
Thanks!

Erma or Bonnie (depending on the version of the play you're doing) would be a good role if you could at least hold a tune. She doesn't need to have a pretty voice, in fact..directors usually choose to have this character use a character voice, but she is still a large part.

If you can't sing at all....there are still a lot of good options. There are some non-singing roles such as Mrs. Harcourt...a very comedic role, but you must be able to play older..and the only dancing is ensemble dancing.

It might also be fun to play one of Reno's angels. They're like her back-up girls. You will probably get some featured dancing and very little singing is required...and NO solo singing.

Do you know if you doing '62 or '87 version? Because someone who isn't as good of a singer could pull off Bonnie easier in the '62 version, no Buddy Beware

You could be a great Bonnie in the '62s version. Bonnie needs to act & dance (sometimes) very well. Erma ("Bonnie") is pretty good too, but you have to belt out one song "Buddie, Beware"...
Reno's Angels...not too bad either. The Angels should be able to dance, so that's a big advantage for you. They don't need to sing that well.

Thank you, everybody!
I think the part I'll go for is an Angel, I hear they have a lot of fun and dancing parts.
