Tenors always get to play the love interest or the suave hero that saves the day. Over the last few years, tenors have gotten some of the best solos like “Waving through a Window.” Many times the Baritone or Bass in the musical is the villain, dad, or just there for comedic relief. Guys and Dolls is a classic show with a slew of manly-man characters. “Luck be a Lady” is such an iconic song. Another iconic song is “If I loved you” from Carousel. A quintessential romantic but not really a romantic ballad. Try something different in your next audition with one of these songs.
Unlike most Princes. Prince Christopher Rupert Whindemer Vladimir Charles Alexander Francois Reginald Lancealot Herman Gregory James (breathes heavily) is not. He is a Baritone. If you don't quite feel comfortable singing a Disney song or "Agony", try "Loneliness of Evening" from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella.
If you can do a cockney accent, try singing "Get me to the Church on Time". This song is for an older Baritone of Bass. It's rather easy so if you don't have that wide of a range try this one. Norbert Leo Butz is playing him in the 2018 revival. He was the original Fieyro in Wicked and has played other roles like Roger Davies in Rent and Edward Bloom in Big Fish.
