Kids Doing Good: Two kids bring slice of Broadway to Portland

Scarlett Thompson and Adia Christensen.

In this week’s Kids Doing Good, we meet two adorable little local ladies making their big Broadway debut.

The national show called “Waitress” recently held auditions for the part of the lead character's 5-year-old daughter.

Scarlett Thompson and Adia Christensen landed the role.

We asked them how they found out about the opportunity.

"My mom told me," said Scarlett.

"My parents went to the Broadway show and they decided that could be me," said Adia.

The story line of the show is about a waitress who's an expert pie maker.

Each of the girls will switch performances playing her daughter.

Waitress opens Sept. 8 through Sept. 23 at Keller Auditorium.
