Hi
I have an audition for a theatre in 2 weeks and need to perform a song of my choice, but I have no idea what to choose? Because the choice is so open I'm totally clueless on what to do? Any help? I'm 17 and can sing both Soprano and Alto.
I haven't decided on a monologue yet but I have a few ideas
Thanks!

Hi! Are you a boy or a girl? Off the top of my head, some of the best songs are There are Worse Things I Could Do, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Colours of the Wind, Favourite Things, Defying Gravity, Popular, Suddenly Seymour

You need to pick a song that really showcases your talent, using a wide range, both upper and lower. Something where the breathing and phrasing is notoriously difficult
This is your one chance to impress so go for it

Ps. Epiphany from sweeney Todd?

Hi! Thank you for the ideas! I'm female btw
Would requiem or you will be found be a stronger choice from DEH? Or something like rather be Me from mean girls? Thank you!

Hi, sorry for the late response!! I’m not really an expert on these things, as I just take Drama A level, so I don’t want to wrongly advise you, but I feel as though You Will Be Found is more of a showstopper song because Requiem might be seen as a little morbid. But then again, I always find it so moving and I guess it would show off your vocal range, so maybe test both and see which you prefer! As for Rather Be Me, I’ll be honest I haven’t heard it before, but if you feel confident singing it then give it your all <3

Watch this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx2kefqKZxM

A couple of advice I got from her vids.
-Don't choose the 'first choice' song, try the second or third
-Try to fit with the theme of what you're auditioning for
-Don't just randomly pick one. Don't.
-Pick a song you could naturally sing without try-harding

Try watching some of her audition song compilations for sopranos and altos.
