The Best Audition Songs for Ratatouille – by Character

Do you plan on auditioning for the upcoming production of Ratatouille? Well unless you have specifically been asked to sing a song from the show, 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 Ratatouille, broken down by character.

Since Ratatouille is an upcoming contemporary Disney TikTok musical, most of the following songs are contemporary or Disney as well. In addition there are lots of playful and energetic 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 (a ballad, something uptempo, etc.). Make sure to select a song that’s appropriate for your specific casting call. Also, as you’re picking out a song, these links may be helpful:

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 Ratatouille music samples➝. It would also be beneficial to watch the film.


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.
