Contemporary Musical Theatre Song needed!!

  • Laura McKellar

    Actor

    Hi

    I am doing an audition next week for a contemporary musical and need help. I need to prepare 2 contrasting audition pieces. I have one emotional song from the musical The Last Five Years called I'm still hurting. I need another one to contrast such a sad song.

    I am an alto-Mezzo Soprano. The song needs to be contemporary in style- pop/rock but from a musical.

    Any help would really help :)

    Thanks

    Laura

    I wouldnt suggest singing 14g, its in my rep but there arent many audition pianist who like to play it. Try the vocal selection contemporary singing actors volume 1 and 2. They have very good ideas from not so well known pieces. x

    Rent is a good musical to pick contemporary songs from.

    Out Tonight is a good track but might not work with simply a piano backing. Have a listen though - you might be able to work something.

    I'd have a look at shows like Next to Normal, Spring Awakening, Bare:A Pop Opera, Elegies or Edges. All modern musicals with a pop/rock vibe.

    Good luck, let us know what you choose!
