WAITRESS, the Tony nominated musical, will be premiering at DeVos Performance Hall April 30-May 5, 2019 for a limited engagement and is looking for two young girls to perform the role of “Lulu” for the duration of the engagement.
WAITRESS tells the story of "Jenna", an expert pie baker working at a local diner and stuck in a loveless marriage. Her salvation comes in the form of her daughter, "Lulu." The character of Lulu is a sweet and carefree 4 to 5-year-old who appears in the play's final scene. Qualified young girls should be shorter and 4'2" and be 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 60 applicants to sign up.
The "Search for Lulu" will take place in Grand Rapids on Monday, March 25 from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre, located at 30 N. Division Ave., in downtown Grand Rapids. The audition will consist of the child saying two lines from the show. If possible, parents should bring a current head shot and resume for each child. Headshot, resume and prior acting experience is not required.
The character of "Lulu" is cast locally, in each tour market, and two girls are chosen to share the role. Each girl chosen will perform in 4 performances each during the one week engagement.
