I have a theory that Birdie is playing at some theatre across America every weekend throughout the year, with the exception of maybe Christmas and New Year's. What's not to like?
We've already posted an Audition Inspiration for 50s/60s pop musicals, which could be appropriate for this show if you're going in for a teenager. These are some musical theatre selections if you're going in for a lead, or if your production specifically asks for musical theatre, no pop. As with all auditions, have as much fun as you can!!!
1. Pharoah's Song, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
2. All Shook Up, All Shook Up
3. I Got Life, Hair
4. Nothing, Chorus Line
5. Popular, Wicked
6. My New Philosophy, Charlie Brown
7. I Enjoy Being a Girl, Flower Drum Song
8. I'm Not At All in Love, Pajama Game
9. Marian the Librarian, Music Man
10. Beautiful Girl, Singin' in the Rain
the opportunity to learn six different endings to a show sounded like fun to me. It's possible I'm crazy. I prepared to give the audition everything I had.
Of course we all know that we should be getting lots of rest and fluids and blah, blah, blah. But auditioning in New York City-- or any city, for that matter-- frequently requires a drink to keep your sanity intact.
I can't believe that June is nearly over, especially since I'm due to have a baby-- my second!-- in early July. This means that I'll have to take a break from The City Audition for the foreseeable future.
