Waitress, the Tony Award-nominated musical, will be premiering at The Paramount Theatre in September for a limited engagement and the producers are looking for two young girls to perform the role of “Lulu” for the show's Seattle run. The character of Lulu will be 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.

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 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” Auditions will take place in Seattle on Monday, July 23 at The Westlake Dance Center (14713 Bothell Way NE in Shoreline.).  The morning auditions are from 10AM - 12 pm, and afternoon auditions are from 1 – 3pm. The audition will consist of the child reading two lines from the show. If possible, parents should bring a current head shot and resume for each child. But  . . . . a headshot, resume and prior acting experience aren't required.

Even though the auditions are later this month, actors need to sign up now for one of the limited number of slots. That's super easy -- here's the website.

By the way, the actual 8-performance run of Waitress starts on September 11, and you can buy those tickets right now . . . here's that link.

It's supposed to be a great show . . . .and to all those budding Lulus out there -- break a leg! (That's theater lingo.)
