Your Daughter Could Star in ‘Waitress’ at PPAC
The hit Broadway musical Waitress is coming to Providence and the show may want your daughter involved.
If you've never seen the film or the musical, Waitress is the delightful story of an expert pie maker stuck in a loveless marriage who falls for her small town's new doctor.
She's a woman trying to make a fresh start really and her young daughter, Lulu, is her main motivation.
Well, during the musical's May 28-June 2 run at PPAC, your daughter could be Lulu.
Yep, the play apparently hires a new, local little girl each show run and the chance for your 4-or-5-year-old to be that local girl comes April 10.
The Providence Performing Arts Center will host the open audition on Wednesday, April 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Each open session will last for two hours and two young girls will be chosen to share the role.
The auditions will require interested girls to repeat two lines from the show.
Sounds simple enough, but there are height and age requirements, too.
Girls must be under 4'2" tall and no older than five years and three months old.
If you have a headshot and resumé, you're encouraged to bring those as well, though they are not at all required.
Only 60 applicants can audition for the role of Lulu, so if you think you're budding actress has what it takes, learn more about the auditions and even sign up in advance at ppacri.org/lulu.
And good luck!
