WAITRESS Seeks Local Lulu for San Jose Engagement of the Hit Broadway Musical on Tour

WAITRESS-the Tony Award-nominated musical premiering at San Jose's Center for the Performing Arts for a limited one-week engagement from Tuesday, December 17 through Sunday, December 22, 2019-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 production's final scene. Qualified young girls should be shorter than 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 45 applicants to sign up. Visit www.broadwaysanjose.com/waitress to sign up.

The "Search for Lulu" will take place at Children's Musical Theater San Jose (1401 Parkmoor Ave., Suite 100, San Jose) on Monday, October 28 starting at 10 a.m. The audition will consist of the child repeating two lines from the show. If possible, parents should bring a current headshot and resume for each child. Headshot, resume, and prior acting experience are not required.

The character of 'Lulu' will be cast locally in the week-long tour markets and two girls are chosen to share the role. Each girl chosen will perform in four performances each during the one week engagement.

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as "The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie" and "Betrayed By My Eggs Pie." When a baking contest in a nearby county-and a satisfying encounter with someone new-show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
