Mixtape Monday – My Audition Songbook

{Yes, I know it’s Tuesday and I should have been posted yesterday…but I’m happy to be making up the rules around here, and my activities today lended to coming up with a fun theme for this week’s mix-tape.}

I have yet another audition today.  I should be uber excited, but I’m afraid my rehearsal schedule conflicts (being in my best friend’s wedding a week before the show’s opening) won’t allow me to be a part of this show.  Rather than canceling my audition, I am going to let the producers know right away so they can decide, and be grateful for ANY audition experience I can partake in these days.  (I’m also excited about a future project at that theatre).

I was going to post my ‘Musical Theatre Favorites’ in this post, but I realized it would be fun to share musical theatre songs I have performed for many-an-audition, so you could learn more about me and the artistic craft I am so passionate about.

Without further ado, here are my favorite audition songs.   Of course, this book is a constant work in progress–I’m working on new songs as we speak.  Some I don’t use  anymore (because of my, ahem, advancing years), but I used them very frequently in the past with much success.  Most are in my audition book right now as we speak.  I most likely will sing When Did I Fall In Love today…  I’ll be returning to my favorite styles of music next week, but thought you might enjoy an ‘insider’s peek’ into my audition book – one of the quintessential tools in my musical  journey.

Let me know what you think!
