Post Ballad for Eponine
Hey y'all, I'm auditioning for Eponine and I'm really stuck. I need a ballad to audition with but nothing is clicking! I'm a soprano (G3-D6) but my voice is not bright enough for Cosette, and I've got a strong belt (to E5). Eponine definitely fits my physical type more so I'd rather go for her! I definitely want something slower and powerful, with a lot of acting because I don't get to share a monologue. It's super important to me that my song is not overdone/done often. I'm thinking of I'm Not Alone from Carrie. Thoughts or other ideas?Thanks! :)

I'd like to be able to help you, actually the first song I thought of was I Dreamed a Dream, but you probably don't want to do a song from the same show. Also IDAD has a Gb3, and you said you can only go down to G3. Which bothered me slightly, because Eponine has to sing several F3's in A Little Fall of Rain. Not sure if that helps or not. You could also try something like The Wizard and I from Wicked, which isn't as slow but does have ballad-like parts. That also has a low G flat though. No Good Deed is fast-paced but a great showcase for acting. If I think of other songs I'll let you know. :-k

Thank you! I can hit an F but it's not super strong, so I wouldn't normally put it on my range. I ended up just mostly speaking the lowest notes, but the music director liked my choice, which was a huge relief. :-" I ended up going with Unusual Way from Nine, had callbacks for Eponine and Cosette, and got the role of Eponine!
