Post Audition help for Maria!!
I have found a new theater I've never been to before and they are doing west sude story. Maria is a huge dreamrole and i want to give them i chance to hear me sing like her. Im looking for a song that is more soprano and similar to something she would sing and I want to be able to acted along with it. Any suggestions?

Hopefully this isn't too late!!
It really depends on a lot of factors... your range, prep time, accompanist, level of skill the accompanist has, etc.
If there is an accompanist that can sight read more challenging pieces, then maybe something Clara sings in Light in the Piazza; it's a beautiful score that requires a similar voice to Maria's and if you can sing with the accent, that'd be better (Italian and Spanish are similar, so they'll be able to see how good you are with adding dialects into music). In my opinion, that'd be the best song choice off the top of my head.
Other songs you may want to consider:
-Much More, The Fantasicks
-Vanilla Ice Cream, She Loves Me
-What's the Use of Wondering, Carousel
-This Can't Be Love (female part), Boys From Syracuse
-Green Finch and Linnet Bird, Sweeney Todd
-He Was Tall, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella

Hope some of these helped or at least gave you an idea of a song to choose! Break a leg!

You have suffered enough and warred with yourself, it's time that you won.
