If you're auditioning for a musical - or needing to choose a song to perform for an exam, showcase or drama-school application - it's vital you find a song that shows off your voice and reveals your full potential as both a singer and an actor

In this invaluable book, you'll find comprehensive introductions to fifty of the best songs from musical theatre for soprano, mezzo-soprano and alto voices, and in a variety of periods, styles, genres and tempos

Each song comes with detailed textual, vocal and musical analysis, and a practical performance guide to ensure you perform it to maximum effect in your own unique way

Drawing on his experience as a performer, musical director and teacher at several leading drama schools, Paul Harvard gives his top tips for performing each song, note by note, moment by moment

He also recommends soundtrack recordings to inspire you, and tells you where to find the correct sheet music for your chosen song

In the Heights by Lin-Manuel Miranda

Songs for a New World by Jason Robert Brown

Next to Normal

Miss Saigon

The Color Purple

Sister Act
