Post Audition Song for Rosie
So, I've decided to gear my upcoming audition for BBB towards Rosie, since I frankly find Kim's character annoying. The director of the show knows that I have a strong soprano, so I need to show him I can do alto belting too.
Only problem- most of the songs in my rep are soprano, and I really don't have the time to learn something brand new.
My question- would any of the following songs be at least semi-appropriate for Rosie?
The Lady is a Tramp
Everything's Coming Up Roses
Forget About the Boy
Gimme, Gimme
Not For the Life of Me
I Can Hear the Bells
If I were a Bell
Sing Me Not a Ballad (<--very unknown Kurt Weill piece)

I know none of them are ideal...but are any of them ok? The director I'm auditioning for isn't picky about the song choice, as long as it shows the range, so I really just need to show my lower range off more.
thanks in advance.

Current Role: Marian in The Music Man
Recent Roles: Queen Aggravain in Once Upon a Mattress, Sister Mary Amnesia in Nuncrackers
