Looking for an up tempo and a ballard. The Audition has to be in the style of the show. I am a tenor and going out for Tony or Riff. Any suggestions? Thanks guys

For the ballad, try "Lonely Town" or "Lucky to Be Me" from On the Town. Leonard Bernstein wrote the music for that show as well, so the style is similar.

A good uptempo might be "Miracle of Miracles" from Fiddler on the Roof. It's similar in style to "Something's Comin'", shows off your high register well (a must for Tony), and demonstrates that you can sing a difficult song with little or no help from the orchestral accompaniment (another must for Tony).

Hope this helps!

Also, try posting on the Auditions forum. You might get more help there.
