Post Need tips for BATB audition!
My local theatre company's summer production is Beauty and the Beast, my absolute favorite musical ever! I'm 13 (14 in July, one of the performances would be on my birthday...yay), so I'm too young to audition for Belle or Babette (my dream roles). I can pass for 16, so I was thinking about auditioning for a Silly Girl and/or a Townsperson/Enchanted Object.

I'm a Mezzo Soprano and I'm planning to sing Beyond My Wildest Dreams from The Little Mermaid for my audition, but if you have an idea for a song that would be more appropriate, please suggest it!

Also, any tips on what I should wear? I was thinking a white dress with yellow stitching on it...it has wide straps and a sweetheart neckline with pleating at the bust and an empire waist. And then a white bow in my hair.

Thanks so much!

I like your song choice. If they are your dream roles, why not try auditioning for them? I understand if you don't want to get your hopes up or something but if it's your dream you should go for it. But I've heard Silly Girls are lots of fun to play. I wore a similar ensemble for my audition and that sounds appropriate.

Chookas! :D

I would audition for them, but technically they're "adult" roles, and the minimum age for adult roles is 16.

Thanks so much! :D
