Hiya! My name's Elise! Okay, here's my dilemma:
So this year my high school has decided to do "Hairspray". Fun, right? While I'm uber excited, I'm also not quite thrilled. That's because, while I can pull off nearly every one of the roles, none of the roles are perfect for me. I'm about 5'5", 160, not quite fat, not skinny, not short, not tall. My stature's pretty average, which works well for most other shows, but most certainly not Hairspray. I can't decide what I should audition for! I'm considering auditioning for almost all female roles: Tracy Turnblad, Penny Pingleton, Velma Von Tussle and Amber Von Tussle. I've played the ingenue, the maternal, the ditsy, the spoiled, and the evil, which gives me absolutely no help in deciding who to audition for. I'm traditionally a first soprano, but I've got a strong mix and can easily pull off a belt. I'm also a dancer, but also are all the roles I'm considering... I'm stuck.
I'm sorry for all the vague explainations, but I couldn't think of a better way to say it.
So who do you think I should audition for? I'm open to any suggestions.
Thank you! I love you!
