    My repertoire consists of strictly operatic arias and musical theatre pieces, because that's the type of training I have. You should only sing operatic arias once your voice matures and if you pursue vocal lessons. I didn't sing any opera until I was 14, so you've got some growing to do. For musical theatre auditions, you are almost always required to sing a song from another musical. Because you say you sing "On My Own" and "I Dreamed a Dream" well, you are most likely a mezzo-soprano. Here are my favorite mezzo-soprano songs for a pre-teen:

    A Trip to the Library - She Loves Me

    Dancing All the Time - Big

    Far From the Home I Love - Fiddler on the Roof

    God Help the Outcasts - The Hunchback of Notre Dame (similar to "I Dreamed a Dream")

    Happily Ever After - Once Upon a Mattress

    Hold On - Secret Garden

    Honey Bun - South Pacific

    How Lovely to Be a Woman - Bye Bye Birdie (also soprano)

    I Caint Say No - Oklahoma!

    I Enjoy Being a Girl - Flower Drum Song

    I Know Things Now - Into the Woods (more difficult to show off your skills)

    I Wish I Were in Love Again - Babes in Arms

    I've Got the Sun - Annie Get Your Gun

    Let Me Entertain You - Gypsy

    Life Upon the Wicked Stage - Show Boat

    Lonely Goatherd - The Sound of Music

    Matchmaker - Fiddler on the Roof

    My New Philosophy - You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown

    My Strongest Suit - Aida

    Not for the Life of Me - Throughly Modern Millie

    Really Rosie - Really Rosie

    Shy - Once Upon a Mattress

    The Girl I Mean to Be - Secret Garden

    Who Will Love Me As I Am? - Side Show

    Wonderful Guy - South Pacific

    You Can't Get a Man with a Gun - Annie Get Your Gun

    Best of luck!

    If you really want to surprise and impress the people you are audtitioning for, do something from musical theatre or opera. This music is tougher, and has a smaller following these days, but is good for showing the potential of your voice, and shows that you are open to being a real singer versus someone who belts out contemporary 3 chord songs
