In a follow up to last week’s vid covering overdone audition songs, this week we’re discussing the WORST audition songs! In this vid, you’ll find categories & guidelines in what to look out for in your audition pieces- plus some real life examples!
QOTD: what’s the worst audition song you’re ever used? Comment it down below!
Also, please keep in mind that these are just my opinions and the opinions of casting directors I’ve worked with. If you LOVE a song and you know that you’ll book with it– even if it fits into one of these categories– go for it! This video is just a guideline to help you make future decisions. Every audition situation is different, apply the info in the vid as applicable. 🙂
Just because Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, Wicked, Book of Mormon, Mean Girls, etc. are in the thumbnail does NOT mean that they are off limits or bad shows. In fact, I mentioned a bunch of show I love in the vid. These are just specific examples within the context of this video that I would recommend against. 🙂 If
you are someone who would realistically be able to play a missionary in Book of Mormon, BOM is a GREAT place to find material. And that applies to every show I mentioned.
If you’re new to my channel, HI! I’m Katherine and I put out a new theatre related video on every #TheatreThursday plus bonus uploads throughout the week! My videos cover a variety of topics include musical theatre / acting advice, theatre kid lifestyle, performance reviews, and general broadway geekery. Additionally, I make usual Youtuber videos, but with a slight theatre-y twist.
