DETROIT (WXYZ) — Tony-nominated musical Waitress will run at Detroit's Fisher Theatre from May 7-19. The theatre is looking for two young girls to perform the role of "Lulu" for the duration of the run.

'Waitress' tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie baker who works at a diner and is stuck in a loveless marriage. Lulu is Jenna's daughter.

Officials say the character appears in the production's finale scene. Each girl chosen will perform in four performances each week during the two-week engagement.

Qualified girls should be shorter than 4'2 and no older than 5 years and 3 months. Individual applicants are welcome, along with sets of twins and siblings.

The search for Lulu will take place in Detroit on Tuesday, Feb. 5 from noon to 3:30 p.m. at the Fisher Theatre, located at 3011 W. Grand Blvd.

The audition will consist of the child reading two lines from the show. If possible, parents should bring a current headshot or resume for each child, but it is not required.

Parents must register their child for a time slot in advance of the auditions. The register link is here.
