AUDITION HELP.....

What kind of song should I sing?


Please do not choose a song from "Beauty and the Beast" as your main audition song. Choose a song that might be similar, though. These are just suggestions...


For Belle (Second Soprano songs) If I loved You (Carousel), How Lovely To be a Woman (Bye, Bye, Birdie), In My Own Little Corner (Cinderella), A Long as He Needs Me (Oliver), Range is low G to F. operatic style is nice.


For Beast/Mrs D'arque: (Baritone/Tenor songs) Almost Like Being in Love (Brigadoon), Feed Me (Little Shop of Horrors), I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face (My Fair Lady), I Don, Quixote (Man of La Mancha) Some Enchanted Evening (South Pacific)


Lefou/Cogsworth/Lumiere/Cogsworth: (Tenor): Get Me to the Church on Time (My Fair Lady), Be Like the Bluebird (Anything Goes), I Can Do That (A Chorus Line) Make Em Laugh (Singin in the Rain) Les Possoins (Little Mermaid) Gigi (Gigi)


Babette/Gaston's Girls -I Caint Say No (Oklahoma), A Secretary is not a Toy (How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying), Diamonds are A Girl's Best Friend (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), Adelaide's Lament (Guys and Dolls)


Mrs. Potts or Madame De La Grande Bouche (Sop 1 and BIg opera voice): Climb Every Mountain (Sound of Music), You'll Never Walk Alone (Carousel), No one is Alone (Into the Woods). operatic would be a plus.


I can only see Cogsworth and Chip as possible male roles that could be played by girls at this present time. Apply for a role within your gender.


Chip will be played by a younger player (probably from the Flat Stanley, Jr cast).


This show will have a LARGE chorus. The chorus will need to supply their own "dinner costume" -for Be our Guest.


But not everyone who auditions will make it.


Go HERE to learn more about the songs and the story and the ranges needed for the singers


Be prepared to sing 1 of the Disney songs at Callbacks from the character you are hopeful for.


Due to the time involved with High School Musical, Mrs. Clarkson is not available to help practice or upload your song for your video.




How to upload your video

Be sure to loudly introduce yourself with spunk and zing into the camera.

Sing your song -30 seconds to 1 minute of your song. With or without accompaniment.

Review it to be sure it is what you what to send!

Please avoid other background noise.

upload it to a site such as youtube or vimeo.

Some may be emailed, but I worry that it could get lost, so only email it as a last resort.

Email Mrs. Clarkson at jclarkson@micharter.org and let her know the link to see your video.

Complete your form all by Feb 9th at 3PM!

Show up for callbacks the next day!
