The Best Audition Songs for Aladdin – by Character
Do you have an upcoming audition for Aladdin? 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 Aladdin, broken down by character.
Since Aladdin is a contemporary musical adaptation of a 1990s film, the songs below are from musicals between the 1990s-2010s. In addition, there are lots of high-energy and Disney vibes below in order to match the style of the show.

Step 1: Read your audition details
Please read your audition details carefully, as they sometimes specify the type of song they’d like to hear. For example, in the auditions for Disney’s Aladdin, they request “16 bars of an uptempo musical theatre song”.
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 listen to the Aladdin cast album➝ while reading through the synopsis.
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.
“Everything to Win” – Anastasia
“Her Voice” – The Little Mermaid
“One Step Closer” – The Little Mermaid
