WAITRESS, the Tony-nominated musical from Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles, will make its Madison premiere at Overture Center for a limited one-week engagement as part of the 2017/18 Broadway at Overture season Tuesday, July 24. The production is looking for two young girls to perform the role of “Lulu” for the duration of the engagement.
The character of “Lulu” is a sweet and carefree 4- to 5-year-old who appears in the production’s finale scene. Qualified young girls should be shorter than 4’2” and no older than 5 years and 3 months. Individual applicants are welcome, as are sets of twins or siblings. Space is limited to the first 40 applicants to sign up.
