Q&A: What Song Should I Do for My Audition?

Question by Ophelia: What song should I do for my audition?
I have an audition for my high school musical and I need to do 32 bars of a broadway song. I am a mezzo soprano and my voice is good, but not great. I also tend to get really nervous during auditions. I was thinking of doing Memory from Cats, but suggestions would really be appreciated. Thank you!

Memory is ok to use if you can hit all the notes in the section of song you want to use. Here are some other broadway songs that you can use:

Acid queen–Tommy
Smash the mirror–Tommy
If I loved you—Carousel
Love Changes everything—Aspects of love
Making Whoopee (Whoopee & Fabulous Baker Boys)
My Funny Valentine (Babes in arms & Fabulous Baker Boys)
Que Sera Sera (whatever will be will be)—Doris Day (The Man who know too much)
Getting to know you—The King and I
Hello, Young lovers—The King and I
I could have danced all night—My Fair Lady
I dreamed a dream—Les Miserables
Summertime—Porgy & Bess
Bali Hai—South Pacific
Happy Talk—South Pacific
Gonna wash that man right out of my hair—South Pacific
Children will listen—Into the woods
Castle on a cloud—Les Miserables
There are worse things I could do—Grease
Hopelessly devoted to you—Grease
It’s raining on prom night–Grease
Movie in my mind—Miss Saigon
I’d give my life for you—Miss Saigon
A million miles away (behind the door)—Paint your wagon
