Post subject:  If I Were A Belle :)

Hi All-
My middle school is doing BATB this year, and auditions are in a week. I'd really like to be Belle. Let me just tell you a bit about me:

I am a mezzo-soprano, (I can lightly hit a high G) but I definetly need some help working out what voice to use where (chest/head/belt/legit).
I am in eighth grade, and they are double casting, so I have a good chance at a lead role.
I am a brunette.
I have been in about 7 shows before, 5 of which were leads/supporting.
There is probably a lot of competition, and I am certainly not the best.
I can act and sing okay, probably a 7/10 in acting and a 8/10 in singing.
I take ballet.
Oh...and a fun fact: I have a very similar name to the original Broadway Belle.
Same first initial and same exact last name, :)

Could you give me any advice? Do I have a chance? How much dancing does Belle do, and what songs should I sing for auditions?

Thank you so much!

Take a look at the most recent posts on the Vocal Ranges thread above. I'm auditioning in a week's time too and asked the same question about belting!

Hahah i know not a lot of people were following this...but here's a quick update:

I sang Astonishing from Little Women, got called back for Belle, Babette and Silly Girl...and got...............BELLE!

The only downside is that I am double cast and our Beast is about a foot shorter than me...hopefully the mask and the shoes will give him some height. So thanks to everyone, and good luck on upcoming auditions!
