Shooting for Zaneeta in Music Man - Song suggestions?
I'm auditioning for a local company who is doing The Music Man. They're a pretty high-end company, so I'm looking to make the best impression I can. I'm not going to get my heart set on the role, but I want to audition with that character in mind. So, I'll give you the most detail I can - I auditioned for this company last year, but my nerves did get the better of me in the callback, but I have grown a lot since then. Because I've never worked with them before, I want to show them what I'm capable of. I'm 18 years old, but I'm always told I look anywhere between 14-17, depending on how I dress. I am a soprano, but I have no trouble singing mezzo songs, and I do enjoy belting. I know she doesn't really have any singing solos unless they're given to her, so I'm looking for something very upbeat, that shows both personality and strong singing ability. I can be a character actor, so I definitely won't shy away from those high energy songs! They also said the song should be at least 16 bars, I could probably do a bit more, but I don't want to go in with too much, because being cut off is never a good feeling. Anyway, any kind of suggestions would be fantastic, and I thank you in advance!
