(WXYZ) — Two young actresses from the Detroit area are hitting it big at the Fisher Theatre.

They will be in the Broadway tour of "Waitress," which runs May 7-19 at the FIsher Theatre.

Leyna Harris from Birmingham is 4 years old, and Caroline Hubbard, of Chelsea, is 5. They will take turns playing the role of "Lulu" in the hit musical.

The daughter of "Jenna" is an expert pie baker who works at a diner and is stuck in a loveless marriage.

Her salvation comes from her daughter "Lulu." The girls were chosen in February from more than 30 girls who auditioned at the Fisher Theatre, and they can't wait to say their favorite line.

Caroline has appeared in print ads for Graco Children's products and for Whirlpool. She's a preschool student and a dancer.

Leyna is also in preschool. She's involved in a drama kids group, and she takes ballet and tap lessons.

Leyna and Caroline will perform in four shows each week during the two-week run of "Waitress."
