This role is usually performed by a female actor or sometimes by a male performer in drag.

A good example of this role would be the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella.

The Wise Woman character also helps the traditional silly hero defeat the more intelligent villain.

You need to be ‘squeaky clean’ to play this type of role, all the little girls in the audience need to fall in love with you. Choose a wholesome goody-two-shoes song for your audition.
  • “Swinging on a Star” is an American pop standard sung by Bing Crosby in the 1944 film Going My Way, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song that year.
    During a meal one of Bing’s children began complaining about how he didn’t want to go to school the next day. The singer turned to his son and said to him, “If you don’t go to school, you might grow up to be a mule. Do you wanna do that?” and the song was born!
  • “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” is a song written and composed for the Walt Disney film Cinderella
    In the song Cinderella encourages her animal friends to never stop dreaming, and that theme continues throughout the entire story.
    The song is full of hopes, dreams and wishes and would make a lovely audition onsg for any older actress, or character actress auditioning for a pantomime.
  • “Hushabye Mountain” is a ballad by the songwriting team Robert and Richard Sherman. It appears twice in the 1968 motion picture Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
    The song is a beautiful lullaby and would make a very sweet panto audition song for a character actor who doesn’t want to play the juvenile lead.
  • “When You Wish Upon A Star” is a song written for Walt Disney’s 1940 adaptation of Pinocchio. The song is Disney’s anthem.
    The song is the ultimate wishing, hoping and dreaming song and makes a beautiful choice for a good fairy audition.
  • Once Upon a Mattress is a musical comedy. It opened off-Broadway in May 1959, and then moved to Broadway. The play was written as an adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Princess and the Pea.
    The song is sung by Princess Winnifred the Woebegone, a brash and unrefined princess from the marshlands. While studying a fairytale, she complains about how other fairy tale princesses had it easy and how she wants to live “Happily Ever After”.
    This is a funny song with plenty of opportunity for some good old fashioned panto hijinks!
  • “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo” (also called “The Magic Song”) is a novelty song, written in and featured in the 1950 Disney film Cinderella.
    The lyrics of the song, as with the title, are composed nearly entirely of nonsense!
    Its a fun fairy tale spell of a song, have fun with all the nonsense sounds and phrases.
