In February I will be auditioning for the Ball State University Theatre Dept. I must have 2 songs prepared for my audition. I have several options, but before I go bombarding my vocal coach with 30,000 songs (OK, not really that many, lol) I wanted to get some advice, see what you guys think of the list I have. Also, if you have any songs to suggest, please let me know. I am a first tenor with a very belt-ish voice. Also, the University does not allow songs from the following shows: LES MISERABLES, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (Webber),WICKED, GODSPELL, RENT, AIDA, JEKYLL AND HYDE or any song of Stephen Sondheim designed for the older actor.
The Songs I have on my list so far are:
-Somewhere (West Side Story)
-If I Can't Love Her (Beauty and the Beast)
-Close Every Door (Joseph)
-If I Only Had a Brain (The Wizard of Oz)
-Over the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz)
-It Takes Two (Hairspray)
-Without Love (Hairspray)
-Home (The Wiz)
I also need to have two contrasting monologues. So i'm gonna definitely need help there!
