...specifically, "Annie." I'm auditioning on Tuesday. I want to go out for either Grace or one of the Boyland sisters. I can sing really well, but I'm worried that I won't "fit" the character choices, in the director's mind. I've only seen "Annie" once, and none of the characters I want to audition for were African-American (obvious, I know). Should I audition for these characters, or just audition for chorus?

audition for those characters; if the casting director is good, they'll go for talent over looks!

break a leg and let us know how you did!

p.s. make sure the sheet music for your audition piece is in the key you sing in; i was always having to get things transposed into my contralto register...

Thank you so much, rouquinne! I'll post here when the audition is over. Callbacks are the day after, so if I'm called back, I'll have a little hope!

Thanks for the tip! My voice range is slightly higher than alto but not soprano. Luckily, the song I've chosen ("O Holy Night") is in my key originally, and showcases my higher register.

Oh Holy Night is a good one to show off an Alto's higher range. Good luck!

I loved "Annie"... the movie and the musical. Would love to see it on Broadway now. (Are you auditioning for an understudy role on Broadway?) Break a leg!

Dumb Dog, why are you following me? I ain't gotta crumb, Dog. How about lettin' me be. I ain't gonna feed you, don't have a scrap for you. Need you? Don't give a rap for you. Dumb Dog! Dumber than thy come, Dog. You're the most presumin' dog, that a human could know.

I adore Annie.

I think you have already been given great advice. Find your key, relax and have fun, and give your all. Break a leg!
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Jess the Mess and Fifi.G, thanks! I'm feeling pretty good as of now. But tomorrow may be a different story!

Spiderlashes, no, it's not on Broadway. I can't even imagine auditioning on Broadway, lol! It's just at one of my community theaters.

Now that I'm thinking about it, is the dancing in Annie complicated? I can dance, but not as well as a professional dancer (i.e., someone who actually takes dance classes).

I think the Boylan sisters did a short tap sequence.

Well, the audition is over. They only asked for one part that you want, so I just put Grace, and noted that I would accept any role that fit me. The only thing that went wrong was that my music was a little too loud, but I just sang my heart out! Callbacks should be Thursday, if needed, and the cast list should be posted by the weekend. Spiderlashes, I just saw your response. Turns out, the dancing wasn't difficult at all!

I didn't get Grace. They casted me as Cecille. I'm disappointed, but I'm glad that I'm not chorus.
