As part of this year’s audition, you are being asked to prepare a section of a song to sing as a solo. If you do not choose one of these songs, you will still be able to sing a song that will be taught to everybody on your audition day. Pick and learn - from memory - just ONE SONG from any of the following three lists of songs. The three lists are:
1. GIRLS Songs originally written for the Female voice
NEVER ENOUGH (from ‘THE GREATEST SHOWMAN’)
SUDDENLY SEYMOUR (from ‘LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS’)
I COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT (from ‘MY FAIR LADY’)
SHE USED TO BE MINE (from ‘WAITRESS’)
PUT YOUR RECORDS ON (by CORINNE BAILEY RAE)
I KNOW THE TRUTH (from ‘AIDA’)
I FEEL THE EARTH MOVE (from ‘BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL’)
2. BOYS Songs originally written for the Male voice
TEN MINUTES AGO (from ‘CINDERELLA’)
PILATE’S DREAM (from ‘JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR’)
PERFECT (by ED SHEERAN, ONE OF OUR MANY ALUMNI AND NOW OUR PATRON!)
JOHANNA (from ‘SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET’)
THIS IS THE MOMENT (from ‘JEKYLL AND HYDE’)
CORNER OF THE SKY (from ‘PIPPIN’)
3. Other options
LITTLE PEOPLE (from ‘LES MISERABLES’)
WHERE IS LOVE? (from ‘OLIVER!’)
WHEN I GROW UP (from ‘MATILDA’)
WHERE DID THE ROCK GO? (from ‘SCHOOL OF ROCK’)
Please choose ONE SONG song from any of the three lists. Please do NOT learn the entire song, just the section of lyrics included in the SONG LIST HERE.
You will be able to find the sheet music online or through music publisher. If you have any problems please call us at the office and we will help.
You do not need to bring any sheet music or lyrics with you to your audition.
Remember to try and be as confident in your performance as you can be - your audition team are looking to see your personality and acting skills in your song, not just to listen to your beautiful voice! Try to avoid copying someone you have seen on Youtube - bring your own pesonality, storyline, attitude and even your own accent.
Good luck, and most importantly of all - have fun!
BEST OF LUCK at your Audition!
Finally here again is the list of songs and the lyrics we need you to learn. If you can't find the sheet music online call the office for help on 020 85863 7725. Or simply learn the song that we teach you in the audition room.
