The Best Audition Songs for 101 Dalmatians KIDS – by Character
Do you have an upcoming audition for 101 Dalmatians KIDS? Well unless you have specifically been asked to sing a song from the show that you’re auditioning for, it’s generally best not to. That said, you should still show off similar vocals and personality. So here’s our list of audition songs for 101 Dalmatians KIDS, broken down by character.
101 Dalmations KIDS is a contemporary Disney JR musical, so all of the below songs are child-friendly. In addition, there are also some non-musical theatre Disney songs sprinkled into the mix, in case your audition calls for that!

Step 1: Read your audition details
*Important!* In some auditions for 101 Dalmations, they may actually request that you prepare a song from the show. They also might specify exactly what they’d like to hear (a nursery rhyme, something comedic, etc.). So please read your audition details carefully, and select a song that’s appropriate for your casting call.
Step 2: Get to know the show
In casting calls, they often ask for you to be “familiar with the show”. And even if it’s not requested, it’s generally assumed. One way to do this is to watch 101 Dalmations KIDS live➝.
Step 3: Pick an audition song
Next, based on your personality and vocal type, decide whether you’d like to audition for the ensemble or a specific character. Just keep in mind that if you audition for a specific character, you still might not be chosen for that particular role.
There’s usually a spot on the audition form asking if you are open to being in the ensemble or accepting a different role. I would suggest ticking that box and taking whatever you are offered. Every role is important, and you will earn valuable experience in a show.
And on that same note, even if you audition for the ensemble (and not a specific character), there’s always a chance you might get chosen for a leading/supporting role!
To summarize, keep an open mind and try not to take the process too seriously. And when you’re ready, choose the song that you feel most comfortable with from the list below.
“In a World of My Own” – Alice in Wonderland [1950s Disney film]
“Only Pretend” – Peter Pan Live!
