Post BATB- Callbacks
Hi! I have an audition for Beauty and the Beast on August 7 for a production in mid-October. This is for a company with a director that I've worked with for 3 and a half years now.

I am ALWAYS the dancer (Previous roles include: Cha Cha in Grease, Helga/Fraulein Kost in Cabaret, Liz in Chicago) and Belle is one of my dream roles. I kind of "fear" being Babette as I feel I won't get fair consideration for Belle. However, I still think that Babette would be a fun role, I just may be a little bummed.

Anyway! I have my first voice lesson to prepare for this audition tomorrow. I plan on preparing both "Home" as well as "A Change In Me" in case of a callback for Belle. What should I prepare in case of a callback for Babette?

Well, Babette only sings one line in 'Human Again' so have a listen to that and maybe prepare something that requires a strong French accent, as that is required of Babette. As to which is more fun, I don't really know what you mean. If you mean fun as in comic, probably Babette but Belle is also a lot of fun, especially the scenes with Gaston and arguments with the Beast.

^ I completely agree. Sometimes I'm seen as the 'sweet, innocent' type characters, probably because I'm a soprano but I really wish I could play other roles. I'm finally proving that I'm more versatile and hopefully in the next show I'm not cast as the ingenue. ;)
