The Tony nominated musical “Waitress” is looking for two young girls to perform the role of “Lulu” for the duration of the Greenville engagement.

The show will premiere at the Peace Center May 8-13.

“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-foot-2-inches 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 70 applicants to sign up at www.peacecenter.org/LuluAuditions                                       .

Greenville’s “Search for Lulu” will take place at the Peace Center’s Gunter Theatre on Wednesday, March 28, beginning at 10 a.m. The audition will consist of the child reading 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 each tour market and two girls are chosen to share the role. Each girl chosen will perform in four performances each during the one-week engagement.
