Broadway San Diego is looking for two four to five-year-old girls to play Lulu in the Broadway tour of “Waitress” when it comes to town at the end of November through the beginning of December.
“Waitress” is the story of Jenna, an expert pie baker, who is stuck working at a local diner and trapped in a loveless marriage.
Lulu is Jenna’s sweet and carefree young daughter and the light of her life.
Lulu appears in the last scene of the show.
Girls should be shorter than 4 feet 2 inches and no older than five years and three months. Twins and siblings are also welcome, but space is limited to the first 60 applicants that sign up.
Auditions will take place at the Lawrence Family JCC in La Jolla on Monday, Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. with each session lasting two hours. The audition will consist of the child reading two lines from the show. If possible, parents should bring the child’s headshot and resume, but that is not required and neither is previous acting experience.
Two girls will be chosen to share the role, which lasts for five performances at the San Diego Civic Theatre. Each girl will perform four times while the show is in town from Nov. 27 to Dec. 2.
“Waitress” will cast local actresses for Lulu in each city on the tour.
