MONDAY, JAN. 27, 2020 AT MILLER AUDITORIUM’S GRAND TIER LOUNGE
10 A.M. – NOON & 1 – 3 P.M.
WAITRESS, the Tony nominated musical will be premiering at Miller Auditorium March 27 – 29, 2020 for a limited engagement and is looking for one young girl 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 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 and ALL are encouraged to audition.
The “Search for Lulu” will take place in Kalamazoo on Monday, Jan. 27, 2020 at 10 a.m. – noon & 1 – 3 p.m. and will last approximately 2 hours in the Miller Auditorium Grand Tier East Lounge. 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.
Parents are able to sign up for audition blocks via Sign Up Genius at http://bit.ly/WaitressKzoo. Applicants need only sign up for one slotted time. Free parking will be available in the Miller Auditorium adjacent surface lots.
The character of “Lulu” will be cast locally. The girl chosen is scheduled to perform all four performances during the 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.
