Les Mis audition songs with a high C?

I m auditioning for Cosette in les mis and I really want to show how well I can hit her highest note (c6) any suggestions? I need something classical and head voicey.

    Can't help too much as I'm a mezzo, but maybe I can put you in the right direction. Try looking at Kristin Chenoweth songs. I wouldn't suggest doing anything too popular (Wicked, Glitter & Be Gay, etc) but it always helps me find audition songs to look at everything similar singers have done. If not Chenoweth, who are your favorite sopranos? Maybe check out the resume of one of Broadway's recent Glindas, Christine Daaes, or even a Cosette. Hope this helps you, and break a leg at auditions!

    Why don't you just sing Castle on a Cloud?

      Most directors don't want you singing "something from the show", instead, they want "something in the style of the show". That way, you can be considered more, for the role you are auditioning for. In this case, Cosette.
