30 Fantastic Musical Theater Audition Songs for Kids [Videos]

Theater Audition Songs for Kids

In this article, voice teacher Molly R. shares her top picks for musical theater audition songs for kids…

There are so many opportunities for kids that love musical theater these days! The popularity of the “junior” editions of big Broadway shows is steadily increasing, for one. There are also several companies across the country that specialize in showcasing kids and only kids, as well as tons of musical theater summer camps.

Needless to say, it’s super exciting to be a young performer. However, one thing that remains tricky is finding suitable repertoire that is both age-appropriate as well as fun. Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!

Musical Theater Songs for Kids

But First, a Few Things to Keep in Mind…

Many of these songs that I recommend are NOT from Broadway shows, but are definitely casting director-approved. Generally, there is more flexibility with kids’ repertoire as there aren’t as many roles for them. That means Disney movies, old standards, and novelty songs are some other styles will sometimes work just fine, unless the production team says otherwise.

Most of all, casting directors are looking for performers who can prepare good material and perform confidently, and often won’t be as specific in their audition requirements with kids as they are with adult actors.

While some of the songs in this list are meant to be sung by a specific gender, there are also several songs that work beautifully for either! So let’s dive in – here are 30 great musical theater audition songs for girls, audition songs for boys, and audition songs for kids in general.

Final Tips for Aspiring Broadway Stars

Some of these songs are more complex than others, so it’s crucial that kids work closely with a voice teacher to prepare their chosen audition pieces. In addition to musical accuracy, your young actor will impress their panel if they really know what they are singing about— so it’s a good idea that they do their homework as far as researching the character and show, too!

Confidence is key, and a voice teacher can certainly help with that. TakeLessons does a wonderful job of matching kids up with the perfect teacher. Check out their online or in-person singing lessons so your child will be prepared to hit center stage.

Have fun exploring these fantastic audition songs for kids, and break a leg!

50 Best Age-Appropriate Theater Audition Songs for Teens

MO - 50 Best Age-Appropriate Theater Audition Songs for Teens

As a teen, it’s important to choose an audition song that not only shows off your voice, but is also age-appropriate. Here, voice teacher Molly R. shares a few tips for selecting your song, plus 50 top picks for musical theater audition songs for teen girls and boys.

It’s wonderful to be a teen musical theater performer! There are so many great opportunities at this age – high school productions, community theater, and even professional theater for a lucky few.

But it’s not always easy to choose the perfect musical theater audition song. In this post, you’ll find top recommendations for audition songs for boys and girls, but you’ll also want to keep a couple of things in mind…

1) What is the production staff looking for?

If they say “don’t sing from the show,” then don’t! However, you DO want to find something as close as possible to the show in question.

For example, is the company doing an edgier show like “Rent”? If so, you may want to sing an audition song from a show like “Spring Awakening” or even “Hair”. If they’re doing an older classic like “Carousel”, consider something else by Rodgers and Hammerstein, like “South Pacific”, or something from the same era, like “My Fair Lady”.

2) What audition song suits YOU?

What is your type? Are you more of the leading man? The sweet ingenue? Maybe you’re a sassy belter, or a character actor.

The good news is that there is a huge variety of songs that are appropriate (and fun) for teen musical theater performers. This list includes songs for all types of voices and personalities, with several different styles and time periods. While many of these songs and tried-and-true classics, many are lesser-known and will delight your audition panel.

Final Tips for Your Audition

I recommend being prepared with a few solid songs, as you never know if they’ll ask for more! Your repertoire book should have a variety of audition songs that include old and new shows, a song from a pop/rock musical, and at least one Disney song that suits you. And of course, make sure that you’ve had adequate time to practice and prepare before the audition.

If you’re confused about what to select or how to sing it, consult a voice teacher near you, or find one online. A professional vocal coach will ensure that your voice is prepped and ready for your next audition. Have fun exploring the world of musical theater, and break a leg!

53 Audition Words & Phrases You Need to Know | Musical Theater Tips

Come across like a professional at your next audition! Check out this glossary of important theater and acting terms, put together by voice/acting teacher Liz T...

 

Are you preparing for a musical theater audition? As you look at your materials, you may be wondering what a “cold reading” is, or which audition songs count as contemporary ballads.

And even once you’re past the audition (congrats!), you might find yourself backstage or on a movie set and hear the director shouting words and phrases you don’t recognize.

Don’t worry! Many singers and actors are unfamiliar with the terms used in the musical theater industry at first. Below, I’ve put together a list of the most common audition terms and vocab you should know. The infographic highlights several important ones… but scroll down further to see even more must-know words and phrases, and a few I felt were worth expanding on.

So let’s get started…

Must-Know Terms for Musical Theater Auditions

Audition and Theater Terms - Auditions

Audition Terms

Accompanist: a piano player hired (either by you or the theater) to accompany you on your sheet music

Callback: an additional audition after the first… sometimes you’ll be called back as many as 10 times!

Cold reading: part of an audition in which you’re given very short notice to read from a script, either as a monologue or with a scene partner (may be given to you on the spot)

Dance call: a dance audition

Showreel: video clips (usually no more than 10 minutes) of you in your favorite performances, sometimes required for an audition

Monologue: a solo acting speech

Actors’ Equity: the official union for professional actors

Backstage Magazine: A subscription magazine (also available online) that announces all upcoming auditions in major cities

Important Notes

Your Headshot

This is a very important theater term to know, because many auditions will require one! This is a clear, professional picture of yourself, usually on high-quality stock paper and 8×10. It can be in either black & white or color, and should be from the shoulders up or can be a close-up of your face.

Please note that this is different from a “selfie” because of the lighting, contrast, and angle. It’s definitely worth researching professional photographers in your area; the cost will usually range from $200 to $1,200 and you’ll get few different headshots. If you’re on a budget, you can even find a local high school or college student to take them for you.

Before you book a photographer, check out their portfolio and make sure you have a contract in writing. Wear something you feel comfortable in that brings out your personality. Also, these photos should look like you do naturally — so don’t wear heavy makeup if you don’t normally, and don’t dye your hair right before!

Showreel

Usually casting directors will want to see video of you acting or performing to be considered for a role. Your showreel should be no more than 10 minutes, and include a variety of video clips of you in your favorite performances. Include clips of your dramatic acting, comedic acting, singing, and dancing, if you have them!

If you don’t have a lot of performing experience, you can record yourself in a practice studio or room performing your favorite monologue — or grab a partner and perform a strong scene.

And don’t worry about having expensive recording equipment — you can easily make your showreel through iMovie.

Cold reading

At some auditions, you’ll be given very short notice to read from a script, either as a monologue or with a scene partner. It might be as little as 5 minutes! This is to see how well you can act on the spot, and how well you do with improvising. It can be nerve-wracking, but have fun with it!

If you’re nervous, practice cold reads before the audition, and bring a pencil, glasses if you need them, and anything else that will make you comfortable.

Typecasting

This is one of the most difficult casting calls! A “type call” usually happens when thousands of actors show up to an audition, and the casting director knows they will not have the time to see everyone.

The directors line up a small group of actors at a time, and based on your height, weight, eye color, hair, etc., they’ll decide on the spot if you’ll be continuing on. Sometimes the director will look at resumes, sometimes not. There’s nothing you can really do in these circumstances except for be yourself! Also, don’t lie or pretend… for example, don’t say you can do the splits if you can’t!

These often occur in dance auditions, or if they need people to fit specific costumes or requirements. Sometimes they are announced on the audition notice, and sometimes it’s a surprise!

Open call

If you see this theater term, be prepared for a busy day. This type of audition is usually held in major cities, and it means anyone can show up, regardless of age, union status, location, height, and experience.

Because these get so crowded, I recommend getting there several hours before the audition. Sometimes after 100 people sign up, they will cut the number or line off. Bring a book and some patience, as you may be waiting a long time to be seen!

Stage directions

If you get the part, knowing these theater terms will make your life a lot easier. Here’s the run-down:

  • Center stage: The dead center of the whole stage (CS)
  • Downstage: Closest to the audience or orchestra pit (DS)
  • Upstage: Behind you, if standing center (US)
  • Stage Left: Your left, when you’re on stage, not the audience’s (SL)
  • Stage right: Your right, when you’re on stage (SR)

Memorize these, so you’re not confused the first day of blocking on stage! Fortunately, these are the same no matter what theater you perform in.

Off-Book

Usually a month or a few weeks before the show or film is set to start, your director will call for rehearsals to be off-book — meaning you’re not allowed to look at your script. This is hard for many actors, as memorizing can be difficult. Start memorizing early!

Conclusion

I hope this post helps you at your next vocal audition or performance for musical theater. If you would ever like extra help preparing, I recommend finding an acting or vocal coach today on TakeLessons and booking lessons!

6 Broadway Belting Audition Songs to Knock ‘Em Dead

6 Broadway Brlting Songs That Will Knock 'Em DeadHave you been learning how to belt, and feel ready to show off your skills at your next audition? Check out these recommendations for Broadway belting songs from voice teacher Molly R

 

Broadway belting is something audiences have loved to hear since the 1940s, when the Queen-of-All-Belters, Ethel Merman, was a main attraction.

Belting is a style of singing in which we bring the chest voice higher than we normally would, to convey extra power or emotion. While some people (and teachers) shy away from it, it’s an exciting style of singing that, when done correctly, can be very impressive!

Many musicals have killer belting songs. So if you’re looking for some great picks for singing auditions, I’ve pulled together the list below, representing a wide variety of time periods, styles, and personalities!

1. “Johnny One Note” – Babes in Arms

Made popular by the great Judy Garland, this number will have you belting several big B flats… with gusto!

This 1937 showtune is a solid classic to choose if you’re auditioning for an older show. It’s also a great choice for teen belters with a good middle voice; it provides enough of a challenge without too much of a chance to strain the voice, as it doesn’t sit too high. Consider this a nice intro to belting!

2. “Wherever He Ain’t” – Mack and Mabel

What a showstopper! Although Jerry Herman’s “Mack and Mabel” was not a hit, critics agree the music is sublime, and this is no exception! This sassy number requires you to sing some high notes, so it’s best for an advanced adult belter with more secure technique.

3. “City Lights” – The Act

Kander and Ebb wrote “The Act” for another legendary belter: Ms. Liza Minnelli! But don’t worry: you can make this one your own — and you should.

This song sits lower, so range-wise it’s not difficult. But it runs for six minutes, so if you’re singing it for an audition, make sure you perform the cut that shows you off best!

It’s also ideal for a dancer who belts. After all, these ARE the composers of “Chicago”! Not only will you be showing off your belting chops, but you’re expected to bring it as far as showmanship, too!

4. “All Falls Down” – Chaplin

Ooh, this is a GREAT new one —  yes, from another flop musical. What makes this Broadway song so great? It’s completely sassy and has a memorable “cakewalk” style. You get to belt this one full out; it’s probably the most challenging number on this list, as you need to belt pretty high… again and again. So this one is for the advanced belters only!

5. “I’m The Greatest Star” – Funny Girl

It’s been said “People” should be off-limits, as it belongs to Barbra (and I’ll have to agree with that!), but as far as I’m concerned, singers should feel free to use the REST of the great songs in “Funny Girl”!

The big belting doesn’t really come until the end of this song, so I’d say this is more for the intermediate belter. The bulk of the song lies in mid-voice and is meant to be sung with TONS of conviction… and serious comedic chops!

6. “Live Out Loud” – A Little Princess

This is for younger belters! It’s a wonderful, uplifting tune that is sure to wow. It’s also very good for those who have more of a soprano-ish quality to their voice. (Soprano/belt is definitely a voice type! Lucky ladies like the fabulous Sierra Boggess in the video below are proof they exist.) The melody is gorgeous and quick-moving, and it’s just under three minutes.

Choosing Belting Songs for Auditions

Before you choose one of these songs, remember that belting is a specific vocal skill that doesn’t come easily to most of us. It’s super easy to hurt yourself if you do it incorrectly. The last thing you want is to strain your voice!

Some voice teachers specialize in the technique, so make sure you’re working with someone who can help you achieve the sound you’re after! TakeLessons has many talented instructors who can help you achieve your belting goals. Good luck at your audition!

11 Signs You’re Going to Rock Your Vocal Audition (in GIFs!)

11 Signs You're Going to Rock Your Singing Audition

Even if you’ve picked out the perfect song to sing for your audition, it’s normal to feel nervous! But take a deep breath — if you’ve got the below 11 things down pat, you’re on the right track… 

 

Auditions are a fact of life for a serious singer. After all, they are the job interview for the performer! If you’re wondering how to prepare for a singing audition, I’m here to help you with some important singing audition tips.

Although auditions can seem daunting, there are plenty of things you can do to feel confident. Here are 11 signs that you’re going to rock your vocal audition!

1. You are rested.


True, it may be harder in this day and age to get the suggested eight hours of sleep every night, but the more quality sleep you have the night before, the better! A relaxed body means better sound, as there will be a lot less tension.

2. Your materials are together.


This means your sheet music is in the right key and clearly marked for the accompanist. The pages are also back-to-back and neatly organized in a binder. If you’re using sound files, they should be easily accessible and cued up at the correct time.

3. You know your lyrics backwards and forwards!


Confidence is key, and knowing that you REALLY have your songs down pat will help you soar through the audition!

4. You’ve done a good warm-up.


This means at least 15 to 20 minutes or so of light vocal exercises. It’s best not to do too much more than that, as you risk tiring yourself out. Think basic lip trills, hums, and sirens — you can never go wrong with those! It doesn’t needs to be anything fancy.

5. You are dressed appropriately.


This means you look professional, but you are also not restricted in any way by clothing or shoes that are too tight, which can affect your breathing and overall comfort level. Remember — a comfortable body means free tone!

6. You’ve picked songs that are right for your voice type.


The tessitura of each song fits you like a glove. These songs are so worked into your voice that someone could wake you up at 3am to have you sing them— and you’d still sound good! That’s when you know you have the perfect audition songs for your voice.

7. The “coast is clear” – meaning your throat and sinuses!


You’re free of congestion and excess phlegm. This means your vocal cords will come together nicely to make beautiful sounds. Problems with congestion? Please don’t panic. Just do more lip trills and sirens!

8. You’re hydrated.


This is one of the most important singing audition tips to keep in mind. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of a dry throat when you have to sing! Just make sure you didn’t over-hydrate, because that can dry out your vocal folds, too.

One of my favorite things to suggest to singers is to cut an apple into quarters: this has the perfect ratio of water as well as citric acid to break up any light congestion. It’s the perfect pre-audition snack!

9. You know what you’re singing about.


Now this is a biggie! Singing the right notes, rhythms, and words is essential, but what good is all of that if you aren’t connecting dramatically? Those that choose to be compelling over perfect are almost always those that get hired!

10. You realize that the audition starts before you begin singing.


This means being kind and respectful to any audition monitors, stage managers, and definitely to your accompanist, should you be working with one! You never know who has the final say in whether or not you get hired or cast. Smile, be friendly, and be prompt! Being a diva will get you nowhere.

And lastly….

11. You are prepared to have FUN.


Yes, I said it. Auditions can indeed be fun. You are going to rock any vocal audition you do if you treat it like an intimate performance, rather than something you have to do.

 

With these singing audition tips, you’ll have an easier time dealing with the butterflies that try to creep up. If you are not already working with one, a voice teacher is also essential for preparing you for your auditions. There are so many great instructors with backgrounds in rock, pop, musical theatre, and more. He or she can help you find the songs that fit your voice, as well as coach you further in the essentials listed above!

Break a leg! Remember that auditions do get easier the more often you do them… so get out there and show them what you’ve got!

15 Struggles All Triple Threats Can Relate To

15 Unique Struggles All Triple Threats Can Relate To

15 Struggles All Triple Threats Can Relate ToDo you consider yourself a “triple threat”? If so, you’ll find these 15 struggles — rounded up by Fayetteville, GA voice teacher Alexandra R. — all too familiar… 

 

The stars have aligned and that dream to be on Broadway, to be a superstar, to be unstoppable is just at your fingertips. The auditions and opportunities of a lifetime are waiting for you on the horizon. You walk through the door of that audition room and you know you’re the one they’ve been looking for… but we all have our constant struggles that stop us dead in our tracks and make us question if we really should pursue this passion as a career. This article is here to show you that you are not alone!

But first, what is a triple threat?

A “triple threat” is a performer who has three notable skillsets. This can be anything including acting, singing, dancing, or playing piano or another instrument. Each skill is high and can be considered equal. Most Broadway performers are triple threats, as well as some celebrities (Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway, for example).

Now that you know what a triple threat is, does that sound like you? If so, the following 15 struggles will also be familiar for you…

1. Identifying your superpower.

Can you play piano? Cool. Belt your face off? Check. Perform the entire “The Wizard of Oz” with costumes, voices, and choreography to a T? Awesome. But what is your best talent? Making a slight change to your performance resume can determine how a director perceives you. Are you a singer/actor/dancer, an actor/singer/mover, or a juggler/dancer/actor? The slight change and reverse of any of your triple talents could determine how great you actually are at your talents. Can you stand the pressure?

 

2. Deciding how to market YOU.

In high school you always played the “mom” character. You’ve also played the tree and the sidekick. In college, you were the ingénue, the villain, and then something completely opposite. Marketing yourself and creating a brand/type for yourself can be hard. Take time to really step back and see what you honestly can bring to the table. Ask your teacher for advice, ask your agent, and ask your other triple-threat friends. Ask anyone who will be honest with you, and then make your own decision!

 

3. Settling on a location.

We all want to reach our goals, but where should we go to pursue them? Should you move to New York? Will LA suit you better? Should you pick another town like Atlanta or Chicago with a smaller competition pool and be the big fish in the small pond? You might worry about missing an opportunity by choosing the wrong place to start your career, and that decision can tear at your heartstrings.

 

4. Keeping your audition material up to date.

The dreaded repertoire book. Do you have contrasting monologues? What about legit songs, jazz cuts, pop cuts, and 1960s pop cuts? There’s always something missing from your book and there’s always something that is outdated and overused. It may seem like you are always looking for something else to fit in your encyclopedia of a repertoire book!

 

5. Keeping your audition material not too mainstream.

So you walk into an audition room and you are ready to perform your go-to song, and what do you hear? The girl in front of you is singing the EXACT same cut of your song. How frustrating is that! Your diamond-in-the-rough song could very well be everyone’s diamond-in-the-rough, so find a backup plan and keep researching in order to avoid the overdone audition songs.

 

6. Being unique.

So, the breakdown calls for a Mickey Rooney-type that can move and belt high Gs and can waddle like Godzilla. So, what do you do? Do you dress like Godzilla and research all of Mickey Rooney’s movies? Do you dress like the character breakdown? Do you learn catchphrases and movements that can help you stick out in a crowd? What if you walk into the audition room and everyone is wearing the EXACT SAME thing? If you think there is a role that you and only you can play, sometimes walking into a room with each person looking just like you can be frustrating.

 

7. Scheduling auditions.

It’s been months since you’ve had an audition. Is your agent alive? Did he or she forget about you? Now all of a sudden, you have five auditions in the same week and you have a part-time job, and you’re still making your beauty YouTube tutorials and meeting your deadline for those 55 subscribers! What do you do? Maintaining your schedule and deciding which auditions are worth going to can be intimidating.

 

8. Handling your arch-nemesis.

She’s there. She’s the one you always look for every time you’re in an audition. She’s the girl that looks just like you, sings like you, acts like you, and almost ALWAYS beats you for that role. You two are always supportive of each other, but you can’t deny the underlying rivalry.

 

9. Deciding which gigs to book.

After months of auditioning, you finally book it: you got the role of your dreams! You also get called in for a head-to-head death match between you and your arch-nemesis for a new hip TV show. Both are great for your career. Both can change your life, but they will start you in different fields. Deciding which role or job to take can be hard. Deciding if you can schedule both can be frustrating as well.

 

10. Dealing with headshots.

The slightest change in your life can be cause for new headshots. Did you get a haircut? New headshots. Did you dye your hair? New headshots. Lost more than 100 pounds? New headshots. Want to have a more commercial look? New headshots. You’re auditioning for a dance company? New headshots. Your manager thinks your headshots are outdated? New headshots. It seems like every time you just spent hundreds of dollars to get new headshots, you have to go out and take new headshots again! The struggle is so real!

 

11. Budgeting.

So you want to take lessons with the best vocal coach in the city, take that Bikram yoga class with the cute instructor, brush up on jazz and hip hop dance, learn piano, and still have money for rent, food, transportation, and those dreaded school loans? Being a triple threat can be tough; we have more things to brush up on and only so much our budget can handle. Along with budgeting comes another important aspect: finding the time to fit it all in!

 

12. Making time to practice!

Yes, you’re Sasha Fierce. You can sing runs like it’s the Boston Marathon. You can dance like Fred Astaire. You can play piano like Billy Joel. You can act like Laurence Olivier, but even the greatest performers had to find the time to practice. But when?!? In this career, we already struggle with work and money. There are great times for us and there are times where we just can’t catch a break. There is always someone out there better than you, so why not keep everything in check? Make time for voice lessons, try new dance/acting classes, and meet with friends to go over audition materials regularly. Patch up and finesse yourself so when you do have an audition, you’ll be on your “A” game.

 

13. Maintaining a schedule.

So, you are in Tampa for five days performing in “Spring Awakening” and then you have to leave after the matinee to fly in for the first rehearsal (which is really the second week of rehearsals) to Pittsburgh to do a weekend run of “The Fantastiks” while leaving in the middle of the week to perform at Carnegie Hall and fly back — and then don’t forget that performance in Toronto next month! Maintaining a schedule when the iron is hot is tough! Sometimes scheduling months in advance can be overwhelming. It can even get to the point that you’re scheduling time to sleep between studying lines and practicing songs. Forget about the gigs! It’s about keeping a regular schedule in each show we perform.

 

14. Sacrificing your social life.

So, you want me to be in your wedding party? Awesome! When is the date? So many of us have friends and family that find it mind-boggling that any second, our plans to be part of a family trip, a wedding, or a family reunion can change. At the drop of a hat, we could book the role or tour of a lifetime and have to catch a plane to pursue our career. We don’t have a nine-to-five job where holidays are the same. When opportunity knocks, we pack our bags and catch a cab to the nearest airport!

 

15. Answering the question, “What’s next?”

The question we all dread. What happens when the river runs dry? What happens when the show closes? What do we do? Sometimes as triple threats, we cannot find a job right off the bat. Others plan six to eight months ahead on shows perfectly so they can budget what they need to pay bills. Sometimes, that means working at a coffee shop to stay on track.

But no matter what, remember: this is what you love to do.

This is your passion. You chose this career for a reason. Our passion and love for the arts propels us to make others happy. Keeping each skill refined is important, so always find time to practice. Take private lessons and always be working on your craft. Half of this industry is what you know and who you know, and trust me, someone is always willing to help you achieve your dreams!

musical theater nerds

Definitive Proof Theater Nerds Make the Best Prom Dates

Do you have a date to the prom this year? Whether you’re a jock, nerd, princess or basket case, prom is all about having a great time with your friends and celebrating the end of the school year. If you consider yourself a musical theater nerd, then you’re in particularly good luck! With those years of acting and singing lessons, we musical theater nerds know how to have a good time.

Here are our top 10 reasons why musical theater nerds make the best prom dates ever.

 

1. We will actually dance.

Nothing’s worse than going to prom with a cool, charming, and attractive date… who proceeds to spend the entire dance hugging the wall with a drink in hand.

2. We can actually dance.

No one likes a date who either spends the entire time on the dance floor stepping on your feet, or doing an arrhythmic pantomime that’s so bad it makes you long for Elaine Benes from “Seinfeld.”

via GIPHY

3. We have a flair for the dramatic.

Prom is all about ridiculous pomp and gratuitous grandiosity. Who can you trust to shine in this environment, the soccer team captain or a musical theater nerd?

4. We know how to share the spotlight.

For all the well-deserved stereotypes about drama queens and attention hogs, musical theater nerds know all about switching effortlessly from starring to supporting roles.

5. We have a posse.

Most people come out of musical theater with what amounts to a second family. Whether you need a crew to back you up in a real fight (or just a dance fight), your date has you covered.

6. We tend to be pretty hot.

7. We know how to dress.

If you think our friends in the costume department will let us go to prom wearing anything less than an amazing outfit…

8. We’re used to uncomfortable outfits.

Forget about girls who switch into flats five minutes after arriving in heels. Your date has worn worse shoes for a two-hour show with multiple dance numbers.

9. We won’t complain.

See above. No matter what the hardship, the show must go on.

10. We’re mildly famous.

There’s a rich tradition of teenagers asking celebrities to proms (and actually getting a “yes”). But not only will everyone recognize your musical theater nerd date from that amazing play last semester, you’ll actually have a chance of seeing them again after the night is over.

 

So there you have it. 10 undisputed reasons why musical theater nerds make the best prom dates. But what happens once the party’s over? If you’re dreaming about making it big on Broadway, remember that taking singing lessons with a quality instructor will help get you to that next step in your musical theater career. Plus, there’s no better time for you to brush up on your skills than during your free time this summer!

how to become a broadway star

Want to Someday Star On Broadway? 3 Tips from an Expert

how to become a broadway star

Dreaming about someday starring on the Broadway stage? Here, Los Angeles, CA teacher Meredith P. shares her expert tips to help you get there…

 

As an audience member, you can sit back and relax at a Broadway show, and not truly understand the work that it takes to get to that coveted stage and the tremendous blood, sweat, and tears that go into each performance. As with athletes, the only thing the audience sees is the end result. A lot of times it can be intoxicating and glamorous. But its rare that an outsider understands the amount of training, sacrifice, focus, and money that is invested into each and every performer and each and every performance.

But that’s every performer’s job… to make it look easy. Because of this, it’s the strong, the tenacious, the hard-working, and the incredibly lucky ones who make it to the Broadway stage.

I began my dance training at the age of two and a half. Sure, back then, my parents weren’t thinking about molding me to be a professional Broadway dancer, but this is just an example of how far back training goes for many professional dancers. Then, as my interest and passion continued, I began ballet training at six, singing lessons at eight, and began working in professional theater productions at age 13.

I continued training all throughout high school and moved to New York City at the age of 18. I was fortunate to be just 20 years old when I was cast as the leading lady of my first national tour; but even then, I still had five more years before I got the chance to fulfill my dream of actually starring on Broadway. But, within those five years, I was working every day on my singing, dancing, and acting skills to carry a show as a leading lady.

If you’re like me, you see Broadway performers as the best of the best! And to be ready for that competition — to be prepared to actually “star on Broadway” — is something that performers train for YEARS to achieve. And, even after all that training, it’s very rare that you get the incredible chance to actually star on Broadway. You never know when that “luck” will roll around. So, what I teach my students is to concentrate on what they can control and to always be prepared for when that luck comes!

If you’re interested in learning how to become a Broadway star, here’s what I did to prepare to star on the stage:

1. Put in hours of work, outside of auditioning for shows.

Artists take voice lessons weekly, sometime more than once a week, depending on the role they’re playing. They’re also taking yoga, meditation, dance, and exercise classes to keep their bodies healthy. This is a daily occurrence. Performers should be working and training daily before they even get to the theater to do their shows.

Also, networking is important, because the more you’re mingling with artists in your field, the more people get to know and like you. Booking a show isn’t always just about skill — a lot of times it can come down to skill and a choreographer or director knowing and liking you.

2. Remember that what a star eats makes a huge difference!

Broadway stars must watch what they eat to be aware of what foods work for them and energize them. Your voice and body can change depending on fatigue, hot or cold weather, and the theater environment, and you have to know how to adapt to that. If you’re doing a tremendously physical show, you have to know that you can’t truly be full at the beginning of it. When I was starring in 42nd Street, I had a rule that I couldn’t be full past 6:30 for an 8pm curtain. I would eat sushi a lot of times between shows because I knew it was good for my energy and digestion. And I always had a banana or an apple in my dressing room to eat before the last 20 minutes of the show, which was the hardest for my role. I learned to never eat nuts or granola, because the pieces got stuck in my teeth, and I almost choked on stage when I started singing.

A lot of Broadway performers eat dinner after the show, and knowing what food is best for your body and what doesn’t create acid reflux is also important, because that affects your vocal cords. Every body is different, and like an athlete, you have to know your body and what fuel works for you to be your best eight shows a week.

3. Have a spiritual or mental practice that helps you balance your body, mind, and soul.

The demands of a Broadway performer are very intense. Not just physically, but mentally and spiritually. The emotional ups and downs are a part of your life, even if you’re extremely successful. Rejection is a part of every performer’s life. For every job you get, there are 50 you didn’t get. So, finding a way to achieve balance is crucial. I’ve turned to meditation, yoga, and “rules” for myself that have helped me lead a full and balanced life outside of the entertainment industry.

For example, I used to tell family and close friends when I got an big audition because I was so excited at the fact that I got a chance! Then, if I got a callback, the pressure was on, and everyone I told would ask, “Did you get it?” Very soon, I realized that if I didn’t get the part, not only would I have to feel the disappointment, I also would have to explain what happened to friends and family over and over again, re-living the rejection.

So, one of my rules now is that I don’t tell anyone until I am signing the contract for the role. This rule might not work for every artist, and I believe balance is about bio-individuality. As a holistic health counselor, I help performers find body, mind, and spiritual practices that promote balance and work for them.

Even after ascending to the top of a Broadway marquee, the work continues. Anybody passionate to learn how to become a Broadway star should constantly be taking voice lessons, acting classes, and dance classes. Take a theater dance class, a ballet class, and a tap class. Even when you’re a star, you should still be taking lessons.

The best, most successful stars never stop training. Ever.

audition songs for altos

8 Dazzling Audition Songs for Alto Voices

Do you have an audition coming up? Selecting the right song to show off your abilities is key. Here, Hayward, CA teacher Molly R. shares her top picks for audition songs for altos…

 

Altos are just fabulous! Your easy low notes and rich tone make so many great types of music suitable to you: jazz, pop, classical, and so on. So, what do you pick as an audition piece to best show off that special voice type of yours? Here are a few suggestions in various genres that may suit you!

Old Standards:

“Stormy Weather” — here’s a classic torch song with lots of emotion and a truly gorgeous vocal line, making it the perfect audition song for an alto interested in jazz. It was written by Harold Arlen, who composed the music for “Wizard of Oz”. There are many fantastic renditions out there, but Lena Horne’s is one of the best:

“River of No Return”  — this is a song from the Marilyn Monroe movie of the same name. This is a lovely song that is rarely performed because it sits very, VERY low — perfect for true alto voices!

Pop/Rock:

“Constant Craving” — who doesn’t love this song? It’s an interesting hybrid of jazz and pop. k.d. lang’s flawless performance definitely inspires. This song can go anywhere — an audition for a band, a cabaret show… you name it!

“I Feel the Earth Move” from Carole King’s album “Tapestry” was made for pop/rock altos. All of her songs on this album are excellent, but this is one of the uptempo songs for some contrast. Not only is this a great audition song for bands, talent shows, and open mics, but it also works for musical theatre, since there is now a Broadway show (“Beautiful”) that features all Carole King songs!

Musical Theatre:

“If He Really Knew Me” — this is a very moving ballad from “They’re Playing Our Song” by Marvin Hamlisch. It’s perfect for musical theatre altos who consider themselves more pop-ish, rather than brassy belters. The other plus to this song is that audition panels usually love hearing it, since it’s far from overdone!

“I’ve Got The Sun in the Morning” — this older show tune from Irving Berlin’s beloved “Annie Get Your Gun” is uptempo and just plain fun! A wide variety of lower-voiced ladies have performed this (including Doris Day and Reba McEntire!), but here is the original performer, the great belter Ethel Merman:

Classical:

“Stride la vampa” — this is only for mature altos who have studied and performed for many years! Verdi is definitely meant for the professionals. This very dramatic operatic aria from “Il Trovatore” will show off your trill, your low chest notes, and your acting chops as well. Here is the great Marilyn Horne, who happens to have ALL of that and then some!

“Oh Thou That Tellest” from Handel’s “Messiah” — you simply can’t go wrong with this. If you’re a classical singer, you know that being prepared with “Messiah” can be lucrative, especially if you do lots of concert work. This aria is appropriate for auditions for church gigs, vocal competitions, and music programs everywhere.

Of course, the best resource for repertoire is your voice teacher! He or she really knows your voice and abilities, and can work with you in finding the perfect audition songs for altos to best show you off, musically, vocally, and dramatically. Part of the fun of being a singer is discovering the repertoire that speaks to you, and there are many qualified voice teachers out there who would love to help you with that — especially you wonderful, rare altos!

The dazzling doesn’t stop here! Click here for even more songs to sing.
