Hanover Theatre Holding Pie Recipe Contest Ahead of Waitress Musical

WORCESTER – The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts is holding a pie recipe contest ahead of Broadway’s Waitress the musical coming to Worcester from May 22 to 26.

The Hanover Theatre is encouraging everyone to submit their “most whimsical pie recipe for a treat that expresses your hopes, dreams, fears or frustrations…something baked right from the heart.”

Pie recipe entrees are due by May 15 and can be sent to [email protected].

A group of finalists will be invited to bring their pie on Charter TV3’s The Hank Stolz Experience for a tasting, where guest judges will choose a winner. The winning recipe will be featured as an insert in the official Waitress cookbook which will be sold every night at the theatre during the Waitress performances.

The winner will also be featured on The Hanover Theatre and Waitress social media channels. All finalists receive tickets to opening night of Waitress on Wednesday, May 22.

Tickets are on sale now for all performances of Waitress at hanovertheatre.org.

From the Hanover Theatre: Waitress follows Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker, as she dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.”

When a baking contest in a nearby county and a satisfying run-in with someone new show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

Brought to life by a groundbreaking, all-female creative team, this Tony® Award nominated musical features original music and lyrics by six-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (��Love Song,” “Brave”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (“I Am Sam”) and direction by Tony® Award winner Diane Paulus (“Pippin,” “Finding Neverland”).
