Post Callback--2 Different Roles

A question about when you are called back for two different roles. In this case, Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother. This is a high school production and naturally would love to be Cinderella over the Fairy Godmother. I have to sing Ten Minutes Ago (Cinderella) and Impossible (for Fairy Godmother). My question is should I sing Impossible more like Cinderella would sing it or like Fairy Godmother? I'm thinking they would then see me/envision me as Cinderella over Godmother. Thanks for any thoughts.

Sing it more like the Godmother; it shows that you are a versatile actress rather than this one-type performer. Also, think of it this way: if someone else portrayed Ella's character better than you did through your director's eyes, the Godmother is your backup. However, if you didn't demonstrate how well you could perform the Godmother's part, it is likely that someone else would get the Godmother's part and you would receive a smaller role. Just do the best you can with any role!
Congrats on the callbacks! :)

You have suffered enough and warred with yourself, it's time that you won.
