Post Vocal Ranges?
What are the vocal ranges for the leads - men & women. Mister Snow, Carrie, Julie, Billy, Aunt Nettie, etc.
Thanks.

Sorry for bumping up such an old thread, but ... where is Carrie's low stuff? I can't seem to hear anything that isn't mezzo-soprano/soprano range. It says on StageAgent that she goes down to a C3 (C below middle C), which is terrifyingly low ... is StageAgent just wrong again? If not... where are these low notes?

Billy Bigelowe is wrong... he goes down to a B-flat in 'If I Loved You.'

And I think Carrie is a soprano.

I just played Carrie.....the director's went off stageagent and although I can hit the notes, the role was a little high for me. Trust me, those low notes are complete fiction. It's all in the middle/high range. Carrie's range isn't all that different than Julie's.

The song 'Mr. Snow' is in the soprano volume of the Singer's Musical Theatre Anthology.

Granted, the editor of those books states that the distinction between 'Soprano' and 'Mezzo-Soprano' in that series is more about singing technique than range - that the 'Soprano' editions feature the classical-type voice, whereas the 'Mezzo-Soprano' volumes are, like the definition that seems common in musical theatre, belting.
