I have done the show as Fredrika, the 13-yr-old, but I'm going to be auditioning for Anne this time. I need 16 bars of a ballad and an uptempo in the style of the show, but not from the show. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me. Anne is the 18-yr-old somewhat silly, naive, virginal wife of the (much older) main character, and she sings soprano but must also have a lower mix. I'm not sure what songs would best show the character and the voice.
Some of my audition songs are:
Where's My Shoe (She Loves Me)
Waitin' for my Dearie (Brigadoon)
Heather on the Hill (Brigadoon)
What's the Use of Wondrin (Carousel)
One More Kiss (Follies, but not age-appropriate so I usually use it for opera/operetta only)
How Long Has This Been Going On (Gershwin)
Vanilla Ice Cream (She Loves Me)
One Boy (Bye Bye Birdie)
I'd love suggestions from my list, or of other songs I should look at. I'm guessing Sondheim is ok since I'm auditioning for a Sondheim show.
