Post "Sunday" auditions
Does anyone have recommendations for male audition pieces for "Sunday in the Park with George"? I'm also looking for vocal ranges for the male characters... I know Georges sings A4s a lot, so I think that's out for me, but anyone know about the others?

I thought it might be OK to ask, because "Sunday" doesn't have its own forum and it's a little difficult to come across information for it.

If you're auditioning for a Stephen Sondheim show, which you are, I would choose another song of Stephen Sondheim's from another show of his.
Here's MTI's website for Sunday in the Park with George:

I hope this helps! :D

George doesn't have any A4s. The highest he goes are some A-flats in "Finishing the Hat." Total range is from G#2 to Ab4, unless he has a low G somewhere, but I doubt it. Jules is a bass/baritone, range from G2-F4. The Soldier is a higher baritone, I forget the exact range, tops out at either an F-sharp or a G. The Boatman is a bass, with a range from Eb2 to an optional Gb4, though I think he goes up at least to an E-flat, if not an F. Franz is a tenor or high baritone. I think he goes up to a G.

I ended up singing "No More" and was cast as Jules. :)
