You will be expected to learn the extract of the song below for your audition but on the day you will only be expected to sing one or two lines on your own and then together with the rest of your audition group.

You do not need to know the words off by heart you can sing from a words sheet but you need to be familiar with the tune.

Both songs can be easily found on YouTube.

Female Audition

When will my life begin – Disney’s Tangled

7 AM, the usual morning lineup:
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean,
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
Sweep again, And by then
It's like 7:15.

And so I'll read a book or maybe two or three
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I'll play guitar and knit, and cook and basically
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Male Audition

Thunderbirds are go – Busted

Spring breaks come around and there's more hero's to be found
there’s something major going down on Tracy Island.

Weapons underground keeping our planet safe and sound
If someone evils coming round they should be frightened
Cause now the boys are back in town.
No strings to hold them down, down.

Don't be mad please, stop the hating just be glad that they'll be waiting,
Friends we have aren't ever changing
You know the lid's about to blow, when the thunderbirds are go.
