Broadway songs for 12-15 year old boys

My studio suddenly has a handful of younger boys, several with recently-changed voices, and one who is not there yet.

I’m building a list of songs that are appropriate for them, both vocally and temperamentally.  I’m looking for texts that are also age-appropriate.

Here goes, with what I’ve taught in the last few months (song, show):

  • Just one person, Snoopy
  • Giants in the sky, Into the Woods
  • Wonderful day like today, Roar of the Greasepaint
  • That kind of a day, Sheldon Harnick song book
  • Leaning on a lamppost, Me and My Girl
  • If I ruled the world, Pickwick
  • Love I hear, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
  • There’s me, Starlight Express
  • If the world only knew, Scott Evan Davis
  • Edwina, Edwina
  • I’m home, Captains Courageous
  • When I get my name in lights, The Boy from Oz
  • Just wasn’t meant to happen, Calvin Berger (or any of Calvin’s songs)
  • Sara Lee, Kander and Ebb songbook
  • Try me, She Loves Me
  • Rhyme for Angela, Firebrand of Florence
  • It’s not where you start, Seesaw
  • The kite, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
  • Suppertime, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
  • Put on a happy face, Bye Bye Birdie
  • All my devices, Stephanie Salzman
