Theatre company Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group are bringing Waitress the Musical to the Manila stage this November and have posted open calls for all roles in the play. 

With music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles, Waitress is a musical based on a film of the same name starring actress Keri Russell. The Broadway adaptation was written by Jessie Nelson, who is also co-writing the musical Alice By Heart with Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik. Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus, Waitress made Broadway history by having an all-female creative team.

The auditions are set to take place on Wednesday 7 February at Opera Haus in Makati. Waitress hopefuls are to prepare 16 bars of a Sara Bareilles song sung in her style and are requested to bring sheet music. A pianist will be available at the auditions.
