Yes! You Should Audition with a Reprise and Here are 10 Good Ones


I have to give 100% credit to my friend Kevin Winebold for giving me this idea. A couple years ago at a holiday party, he told me that more people should audition with reprises. Given that the man is brilliant, I agreed and have been meaning to write about this for some time.

Auditioning with a reprise is a fantastic choice of material. Typically they are already short cuts, contain some great performance moments and can even show off your acting range. Also, in timed auditions the chances of being cut off are slim. I’m honestly shocked I don’t hear more of them in auditions. But if you’re considering them, here are 10 that would be good choices.

“I’m the Bravest Individual” - Sweet Charity

“How I Know You” - Aida

“Dead Girl Walking” - Heathers

“Small World” - Gypsy

“Foolish to Think” - Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder

“Promise Me Violet” - Violet

“Falsettoland” - Falsettos

”Belle” - Beauty & the Beast

“Just Beyond the Stars” - Peter Pan

“Look Over There” - La Cage aux Folles
