  1. Hi im in highschool, im a drama major and im trying out for into the woods. But i wanted to know is the song “i can hear the bells” a good song to sing for this audition Please get back to me ASAP ! 🙂

    1. I was in the musical Beauty and the Beast at my school (I’m in middle school), and we were given songs to audition with. So here are some songs you could consider to audition with:
      * “Beauty and the Beast”- Mrs. Potts.
      * “Be Our Guest”- Lumiere
      * “Home”- Belle
      These are just a few songs from the musical. Make sure, if you do sing any of these songs, that you know that they are from Beauty and the Beast, and not just a different song.
      I hope I was helpful!

  2. Hey, I’m in high school and am trying to get into a production of into the woods. I am an alto. I can’t decide between “a house is not a home,(promises,promises)” “dancing through life,(wicked)” or “status quo,(starship).” The problem is that we can only sing 12 measures of the song. Do any of these sound like a good choice?

    1. For an alto, I recommended checking out songs from Heathers the Musical. Personally, for me, I like to use Dead Girl Walking (depending on the type of show I’m auditioning for) because it’s a good one for an alto. All of Veronica Sawyer’s songs from the show would be good, maybe, though.
