Post BATB auditions-belle
hey all i'm new-ish. & i'm going to be auditioning for batb (which i've done once before as babette) & i'm literally dying to be belle as im sure just about every other girl is too lol. Anyway, i've been considering The Prologue- Joseph & the Amazing...., The Beauty Is- The Light in the Piazza, They Say its Wonderful- Annie Get Your Gun, & maybe something from Into the Woods. I'm pretty confident that i can sing/sell any of these songs pretty well. anyone have any votes??? any input would be much appreciated. :D

I don't think "It's Wonderful" has enough range....
which of these songs shows off the widest range? (See sticky for Belle's official range in the show)
which song can show off multiple voice styles? (Legit and some mix/belting.... not that there's any stipulation that Belle HAS to belt anything, but it's sort of the norm these days, although it depends on the director)
which song is 'lighter' in theme? (not to say light as in 'frivolous', but... you know, not angsty, or depressed, or mad, or self-deprecating...)

p.s. I have an audition for Belle coming up too... I hope we're not going to the same one! ;)

omg! hahaha i've seen your posts all over i'm glad you commented on mine. im actually located in so cal so i doubt its the same one lol. its also childrens theatre.
none of them are really angsty i'd say theyre all pretty bright except maybe the beginning of astonishing which i probably wouldnt do in my 16 bar audition anyway. you can listen to pretty much all of them on youtube. but thank you again for your reply :)

Well if anyones interested, i got mrs. potts. it wasnt quite what i was hoping for & i was a little disappointed in their choice of belle(flat). but i can understand seeing as who they chose as the beast, & i was the only one who could really hit all of the upper & lower notes in beauty & the beast. so oh well you win some you lose some this should be fun :)

Hey how did you find playing Mrs Potts? I just recently played her and personally....I like her character better than Belles, Belles too soppy and sarcastic for my liking relaly
