AUDITION DETAILS

 

GROUP A- Uptempo & Character-Driven

Choose ONE from this group to audition with:

Brand New Day
Key of Bb (same as soundtrack). Starting notes:
D........................F
Everybody look around

Everybody look around
'Cause there's a reason to rejoice you see
Everybody come out
And let's commence to singing joyfully

Everybody look up
And feel the hope that we've been waiting for
Everybody's glad
Because our silent fear and dread is gone

Come Alive (from The Greatest Showman)
Key of D (same as soundtrack). You can freestyle/ad lib.

I see it in your eyes
You believe that lie
That you need to hide your face

Afraid to step outside
So you lock the door
But don't you stay that way

No more living in those shadows
You and me we know how that goes
'Cause once you see it, oh you'll never, never be the same

We'll be the light that's shining
Bottle up and keep on trying
You can prove there's more to you
You cannot be afraid

The Greatest Show (from The Greatest Showman
Key of Bm (same as soundtrack). Starting notes:
D-D    D    C#,        C#..........................D   C#-B   B
La-dies and gents, this is the moment you've wait-ed for

Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for
Been searching in the dark, your sweat soaking through the floor
And buried in your bones there's an ache that you can't ignore
Taking your breath, stealing your mind
And all that was real is left behind

Kansas City - MALE SOLO

By Sattidy I larned a thing or two
For up to then I didn't have an idy
Of whut the modren world was comin' to!

I counted twenty gas buggies goin' by theirsel's
Almost ev'ry time I tuk a walk.
'Nen I put my ear to a Bell Telephone and a strange womern started in to talk!
(Whut next! Yeah whut!)
Whut next?

Ev-ery now and then I get a lit-tle bit lone-ly

Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round
Every now and then I get a little bit tired
Of listening to the sound of my tears

Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
That the best of all the years have gone by
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
And then I see the look in your eyes

GROUP B - Ballad

Choose ONE from this group to audition with:

A Million Dreams (sung during Lyrical Dance performance)
Pick any key: whatever you're most comfortable with.

They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy
They can say, they can say I've lost my mind
I don't care, I don't care, so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design

'Cause every night I lie in bed
The brightest colors fill my head
A million dreams are keeping me awake

I think of what the world could be
A vision of the one I see
A million dreams is all it's gonna take
A million dreams for the world we're gonna make

In My Life/If We Never Meet Again
Key of Eb (4th lower than Selah track). Starting notes:
Bb     Bb    F-Eb    F  G-Bb-G
There are pla-ces I re-mem-ber

There are places I remember all my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better, some are gone and some remain
All these places have their moments with people and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living, but in my life I loved them all.

Slipping Through My Fingers (from Mamma Mia! medley)
Pick any key: whatever you're most comfortable with.

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while

The feeling that I'm losing her forever
And without really entering her world
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Somewhere Out There
Key of Bb (4th lower than movie soundtrack). Starting notes:
D       F      D    Bb
Somewhere out there...

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight
Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that dream somewhere out there

Thank You for the Music (from Mamma Mia! medley)
Key of E (same as movie soundtrack). Starting notes:
  E       E-E        E-D#,   C# B
"I'm noth-ing spe-cial, in fact..."

I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud
