Colleen Ballinger To Appear as Dawn in Hit Musical ‘Waitress‘
Ballinger announced yesterday that her dream of hitting the Broadway stage was finally happening. The YouTuber had been signed in on the musical starting on August 20 and continuing till September 15th.
The musical Waitress is based on the 2007 movie by Adrienne Shelly which is scored by singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles. It will narrate a waitress and expert pie-maker Jenna who wants to escape her small town and marriage. But instead of playing Jenna, Colleen Ballinger will assume the role of Dawn who is one of Jenna’s friends.
In the announcement video that Colleen Ballinger uploaded, she claimed that appearing in a Broadway musical has been her dream ever since she was born. So obviously she is pretty excited for this new role. The main reason was the fact that this is the first major role she is doing apart from her popular YouTube personality Miranda Sings. The chance to broaden her horizon is certainly an exciting one.
She shared in the video that:
I’m really nervous to play a different character and perform eight shows a week like the professionals in New York do!
