Do you know a young girl with theatrical ambitions? Here's a chance for two girls, 4 or 5 years old, to share a role in a touring Broadway show that will be at Seattle's Paramount Theatre later this summer.
The Tony-nominated musical "Waitress" is looking for two young girls to perform the role of Lulu for the show's Seattle engagement Sept. 11-16.
"Waitress" tells the empowering story of Jenna, an expert pie baker working at a local diner and trying to rebuild her life. Her salvation comes in the form of her daughter, Lulu. a sweet and carefree 4- to 5-year-old who appears in the production’s finale scene. The role of Lulu is being cast locally in each town where the show is visiting.
Candidates for the role of Lulu should be shorter than 4 foot 2 and no older than 5 years and 3 months. Individual applicants are welcome, as are sets of twins or siblings. Two girls will share the role, each making four appearances during the show's weeklong run.
"Waitress" is produced by an all-female creative team and features original music by Sara Bareilles (“Brave,” “Love Song”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (“I Am Sam”) and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus ("Finding Neverland," "Pippin," "Hair").
Auditions will take place Monday, July 23, in Shoreline, and are limited to the first 60 applicants to sign up.
