Disney Audition: Take Two

I have gotten multiple responses and questions about my first attempt at auditioning for Disney, so I figured I should let you all know how my second attempt at auditioning went. 

This auditions was for the voice/face of Ariel for the Little Mermaid show. I saw the audition slightly last minute, but decided I would give it one more try. 

(**Side note for those of you who read my first blog about Disney…I have about 16lbs since the last audition.) 

The typecast for the part of Ariel was too perfect for me to pass up: between 5’1″ and 5’4″,  soprano vocal range and looks between the ages of 16 to 20. 

AKA the typecast WAS ME. 

The song requirements was having 16 bars of a song on sheet music, where you had to sing along with a pianist. Now, since I decided it would be a good idea to do this audition last minute, I had no time to practice this song with someone playing it…

If you audition for a vocal past, I would definitely recommend not just showing up without practicing it like I did. Luckily it was a song that I could sing in my sleep, so I was okay. However, probably not the best thing to just chance it. 

Now, when you got the audition you signed up at the front and they gave you a number. For this audition they had two rooms for auditions going, so they got people in and out of there as quickly as they could.

They had you do the voice audition first, if you made it past that then they took you to costume to check out if your body/facial feature would suit the character…

and let me tell you…they had VERY SPECIFIC measurements for Ariel. I made it past the vocal audition, which made me happy. However, of all the girls there that auditioned, only ONE made it to the callbacks. 

Like I said ladies, VERY SPECIFIC TYPECAST.

Sadly, another Disney dream bit the dust for this girl.

Only difference between defeat and success is how you look at it. I know deep down it doesn’t matter that I didn’t get the part because in my heart I know I am a Disney princess.

If you auditioned and didn’t get it…don’t give up. Audition again and keep your chin up. What am I doing with myself now that I have stopped chasing the Disney princess dream?

I am just keeping on with my happy self; loving life, laughing lots and randomly breaking into song and dance thinking I am in a fairytale. 🙂

    Was this just for Character Look Alikes? Because the audition Im going didn’t say anything about singing (although I would love that). Or we’re you auditioning for some other performing part?
