Post subject:  Once Upon a Mattress Audition

My high school is putting on Once Upon a Mattress in the spring, and since I don't want to limit myself to being considered for only one part, I've sought for a song that will open up the possibility for several different characters, and I think I've found it. I think that I would sing "That'll Show Him" from A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum. I figured that it isn't too long and theres spots to show off some belting and spots to show off a sweeter singing. Now that I've chosen a song, I need to figure out who I should be aiming for. My hair is a dark blonde and my eyes are blue and I have fairly light skin. I'm about 5'8 and I'm not skinny, but I'm not plus sized either. I sing soprano in choir, but I have played alto roles in the past. I'm one of the younger kids. So I suppose these are my questions: Is this song choice versatile enough (or too versatile)? And what character(s) should I be aiming for? Any advice on either of these is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

Go for Lady Larken. "That'll Show Him" is in Larken's range and Philia (who sings the song in Forum) is very similar to Larken character-wise.
