The Tony nominated musical WAITRESS, which runs at ASU Gammage Oct 2-7, has cast two young Phoenix actresses to take on the role of “Lulu” during the engagement.
4 -year-olds Harper Wasnesky and Azra Kearns will alternate the role of “Lulu,” the daughter of the production’s main character, Jenna.
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.”
Both girls were chosen via an audition process held at ASU Gammage earlier this month. More than 60 girls signed up for the auditions, which were presided over by members of the WAITRESS company. The character of “Lulu” is 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 engagement.
“It’s an empowering musical of the highest order!” raves the Chicago Tribune. “WAITRESS is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly and “a monumental contribution to Broadway!” according to Marie Claire. Don’t miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
