Review Quotes


Akron Beacon Journal/Ohio.com – 10/23/2017


“And on Friday night, Norton youngster Harper Schmid, 5, one of two local girls cast as Lulu for the Cleveland run, added an adorable touch in her short but sweet time on stage.”

Review Quotes


Cherry and Spoon – 11/22/2017


“And as a special treat, the role of little Lulu (who appears in the final scene only) is locally cast in each tour stop, and here in Minneapolis is played alternately by Prewitt Anderson and Estela Antivilo. I saw the former, and although only 5 years old and up way past her bedtime, she hit every mark and said every line clearly and stole every heart in the theater”

Eliana Mann



Review Quotes


Faith, Family, and Technology – 12/06/2017


“One other cool thing that I enjoyed about this performance is how they cast 2 young, local girls to trade off playing a small part in the show. 5-year-old Eliana Mann from Urbandale played the part of Lulu in the opening night performance and she was great.”

Omaha, NE (Dec. 12-17, 2017)

Review Quotes


Omaha.com – 12/13/2017

Review Quotes


Lansing State Journal – 01/24/2018


“Of course, one of the key highlights of the evening was DeWitt’s own 4-year-old Callie Rodgers (Vivian Southwell at other performances), making a delightful appearance at the end of the show. She sparkled for the entire audience to enjoy.”

Baltimore, MD (Jan. 30-Feb. 4, 2018)










Korie Mitchell



Temperance “Tempie” Oppel



Review Quotes


Baltimore’s Child – 01/31/2018


“But one thing certainly stood out—the adorable little blonde girl who took the stage during the musical’s final scene. Tempie Oppel stole the show as ‘Lulu,’ the main character Jenna’s two-year-old daughter. … Tempie’s lines were few, but the audience was charmed to pieces by her spirited dancing and cute-as-a-button kiss on her stage mom’s cheek. Bravo, Tempie!”


DC Metro Theater Arts – 01/31/2018


“We won’t spoil the ending but let’s say you will leave with tears of joy in your eyes, thanks largely to the arrival of Lulu and all her charms. She was wonderfully played on opening night by Temperance Oppel and will be played on alternate dates by the no doubt equally lovable Korie Mitchell.”

Buffalo, NY (Feb. 6-11, 2018)










Isabella Maritato



Sophia Vandette



Review Quotes


Buffalo Vibe – 02/07/2018


“And our local kindergarteners who plays five-year-old Lulu must be mentioned. We saw Isabella Maritato on opening night. She could not have been more darling. Sophia Vandette will alternate with her, and surely she is just as adorable.”

Philadelphia, PA (Feb. 13-18, 2018)

Review Quotes


Entertainment Central Pittsburgh – 03/07/2018

“And, just in case there weren’t already enough sweet treats on stage, four-year-old Eliza Chabot of Farmers Branch (who alternates nightly with Quinn Johnson of Grapevine), enters late in the evening as the cherry on top, with the most adorable smile you’ve ever seen onstage (and she knows all the lyrics, too!).”

Review Quotes


Nashville Arts Critic – 06/09/2018


“…at show’s end, there’s a cute five-year-old added to the recipe, Lulu…For Nashville’s dates, Ellie James and Olivia Graves share Lulu duties and in one brief show-ending moment snag the spotlight and the audience’s hearts in the process.”


Lumination Network – 06/07/2018


“An especially interesting feature of the show’s tour comes from the little girls who alternate playing Lulu, Jenna’s daughter: Ellie James and Olivia James Graves, both 5 years old. Both of the girls are local talent, and Waitress marks their acting debut.”


Nashville Parent – 06/07/2018


“And a little something extra sweet comes in the ‘Opening Up’ finale. Here, two local 5-year-old girls – Eleanor ‘Ellie’ James and Olivia James Graves – alternate the role of Jenna’s daughter, Lulu. The walk on role serves as the stage debut for both little girls, certainly a wonderful experience they won’t forget.”

Review Quotes


Baltimore’s Child – 07/27/2018


“Still, by the time Jenna is triumphantly hefting her young daughter (played in rotation by Wisconsin-based urchins Rosalie Manson and Addie Manthey) there’s reason to be happy for everyone who deserves it.”


Isthmus – 07/26/2018


“Be sure to look for two of Madison’s littlest local actors in the finale: Rosalie Manson and Addie Manthey alternate in walk-on roles as Lulu – the cute-as-a-button namesake of the reinvented, reinvigorated diner, and the inspiration for Jenna’s new life.”


The Cap Times – 07/25/2018


“Finish off with a cute cameo from a Wisconsin kindergartener (Rosalie Manson, 5, from La Crosse) and that might just be all the ingredients we need.”

The San Diego Union-Tribune – 11/28/2018


“On Wednesday night, 5-year-old Kensley Dibble danced her toes off as Lulu, Jenna’s daughter. She alternates in the part this week with 5-year-old Sloane Viora of Point Loma.”
