Not Gonna Sing
Parker, whose life is a musical that no one else sees or hears, has lost everything. The woman he loves (but can’t tell her he loves her) thinks he has betrayed her, and told him never to see her again. He resolves to forget her, and everything they’ve gone through together — and though he hears the music beginning, he insists that this will not be a song moment. Dramatic ballad for tenor. (F#3 – A4)
Parker’s life is a musical — and he hates musicals. All his life, he’s heard people burst into song and dance around him, knowing he’s the only one who sees and hears the world this way. What he really wants is to live in a world of no singing and dancing — a world of perfect silence. Bari/tenor power ballad (Range: B3 – A5)
Someone Else’s Song
A woman has dreamed her whole life of being a rock star, only to settle for being a rock band manager when she found out she stunk. But her voice, as heard by Parker (whose life is actually a musical) is incredible. (Range: Bb below middle C to high D mix/belt)
