Those are some great tips guys
Only I did try out with "Think of Me" from Phantom and I got a lead role
so just go with whatever you're comfortable with

i do agree with the no les mis thing though, even though it has some of the most beautiful songs ever on broadway (in my opinion of course)

i guess other audition songs i'd suggest are

heaven on their minds- jesus christ superstar
the last midnight- into the woods
my sister is an alto and auditioned with the song "never fully dressed without a smile" from annie, its a good one if you want to show personality

STARFACE- since Chava is a mezzo, id suggest you go with one of the songs on the first page

The only reason why I didn't put Last Midnight up because it's not in the sheet music.

I don't really need audtion advice right now, because I've basically decided what I'm singing...but I'm uber nervous because I have an audition in about two hours. Eek!

I mean, I know I'll get in because that's basically how this theatre group operates - I've done four shows with them, and they don't really turn people away anyway. However...I'm really torn between two songs...

Many a New Day and I'll Know (Oklahoma! and Guys and Dolls, respectively.) I'm auditioning for Guys and Dolls, but I'm undecided as to whether or not to audition for Sarah...I want to, but I don't know if I even have a shot at it (I am, after all, only sixteen, althought I played a 22 year old in my last show) - I know though, that if I don't make Sarah and I auditioned for her, I'm stuck in the mission band, and I've already been in there once...but I figure I might as well try for Sarah, right? But at the same time, I don't want to make a fool of myself if I get in there and they think I could never play Sarah. *sigh*

I don't usually babble so much, I'm just really nervous for some reason, and just trying to appease myself.

Wish me luck? (And suggestions, too, like if you think a 16-year-old could ever play Sarah in Guys and Dolls! ^.~)

Thanks. :D

question??? Okay usually I play this game in my mind (I'm lame I know) where I prentend I'm trying out for a charcter in a musical and I match the song with the closest one I can find...

Example:

The Music Man (Marian)- "Wonderful, Wonderful day" -seven Brides for Seven Brothers

I do this to often for words...no wonder I can't pass my classes...

Does anyone else thing "Spanish Rose" from "Bye, Bye, Birdie" goes perfect for Anita in "West, Side Story"

or am I going crazy again?

I don't recommend Adelaide's lament. It's a complete character song that requires an accent, and doesn't actually have much singing in it... It's probably not a good one. However, I do recommend (for mezzo) Tell me On a Sunday. And I don't really think it's too overly used either.

Oh, and a good one for Chava (though I'm sure this is too late) is In My Own Little Corner from Cinderella :D

I don't recommend it either. If you are auditioning for a character role (ie: Adelaide, Audrey, ect.) there are other fantastic songs out there for you such as Somewhere That's Green. I'm not saying that the Lament is bad, but it is extremely overdone. So many girls try to sing it with the voice, when the voice just doesn't come out right. Also, vocally it is very much an acting song, not so much made for someone with a voice. It would probably make a good monologue though, for a high school show if you're auditioning for a character role. Actually, when I think about it, some parts of it could be a real monologue, simply with talking. What do you all think of the idea?

Hey all! I'm singing "Goodnight, My Someone" for a college audition, and I'm confused as to what to do with blocking. Should I just stand there and sing, should I walk around, should I move at all? Agh! If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

that's a hard one, but when I sang it my director wanted me to say in the same place and act with my face... and a little with my hands. I deffinitley would have moved around on stage could I have helped it.. especially on the " true love can be whispered from hear to heart ect...."
I ended with reaching out to the star and Amaryllis cuddling up to me.. which Im sure you wont have for college auditions :)

I know, i know...another audition question. But i really need help!

I'm in a really difficult situation. I have to try out to get into a performing arts school with a song and monologue. I'm trying out for the drama program, but i'm more confident with musical theatre. This is a general audition, so I'm trying to show off everything I've got. I'm thinking either a dramatic monologue/comedic song or vice versa. I'm 15 and I can sing anything from a Gb below middle c to a E above high c. I'm in desperate need of help! with monologue and song!
thanks!
*Love*

I think you should put all of your energy into singing, and not worry about moving around the stage. That is, I don't think that moving around the stage will give you bonus points. You can use facial expressions while you sing to give your presence more feeling.
