There is a big casting call in Omaha today. The Broadway musical, Waitress will be at the Orpheum Theater next month and Assistant Director Susanna Wolk is here auditioning young girls for an on stage part.
Wolk says, “One very exciting element of this national tour is that we cast one of the roles locally in every city. That role is Lulu, a small but very pivotal role in the show played by a 4 or 5 year old girl.”
Wolk says she is looking for two girls to rotate performances. He is looking for girls that are calm, focused and take direction well. They will be performing in front of thousands of people and will need to hold their own with all the singing, dancing, chorography and scenery moving.
More than 30 girls have signed up. Wolk says they are casting two girls for the part and will alternate performances. Waitress – The Musical is on stage December 12th through the 17th.
