actually a lot of casting directors like for people to sing disney songs, if it's relevant to the show. If you're auditioning for a younger girl/boy a lot of disney songs are good.
I agree. They work great. When I played Kurt VonTrapp, I used "I've Got No Strings" from Pinocchio for my audition.

Post If you're auditioning for a male choir, don't sing...
My Heart Belongs To Daddy. Particularly if it is combined with a little cutesy dance.

Yes, this happened last week when we held auditions for positions in our choir.

Twentyish, I suppose. I didn't look very close at him. Bursting out in laughter is not very tactful at an audition, so I didn't dare to.

When auditioning for anything, do not, please, sing anything from Chicago!
When I tried out for Anything Goes, practically half the girls there sang something from that show. It drove me crazy!! (I sang Moon River instead.)
The next year, other people I talked to were "thinking of singing something from Chicago..." I thought I'd go insane advising them not to.

It's honestly not that appropriate for a Cole Porter show anyway...
