Search for next young Broadway star in San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Your little girl could star in a Broadway musical. The producers for "Waitress" are looking for two girls to play the character Lulu.

News 8's Ashley Jacobs reports from the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center where auditions were taking place Monday. The assistant director from the hit Broadway show came to San Diego on a mission to find a child star.

The search for Lulu got underway with Broadway San Diego partnering with the community center to find the perfect fit. Two young girls will be chosen to perform the role of Lulu while “Waitress” is in town.

The Tony-nominated musical will run from Nov. 27 - Dec. 2 at the San Diego Civic Theatre. “Waitress” tells the story of Jenna – a waitress and expert pie maker, dreaming of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage.

A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start. 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.

Broadway San Diego will announce the winner in a couple of weeks on News 8’s morning show.
