Join our Girls Night Out at Walton Arts Center to see “Waitress”

Mark your calendars, mamas! We’re planning a Moms’ Night Out for Thursday, April 11, 2019, and we’re going to see Waitress at the Walton Arts Center! We’d love for you to join us for the show and the pre-show appetizer and cocktail reception, catered by Bordinos, at 5:30 p.m. (We’re giving away two Moms’ Night Out tickets to a reader who comments on this post! See below.)

This Broadway hit benefits from original music composed by none other than Sara Bareilles, a six-time Grammy nominee who’s known for songs including “Love Song,” “Brave,” and “Gravity.” (We LOVE her music!)

About the show:

This musical tells the story of a woman named Jenna – a waitress and expert piemaker who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.

Waitress the Musical

Waitress is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly and “a monumental contribution to Broadway!” according to Marie Claire. This is the perfect show for our annual Moms’ Night Out, since the story celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

Just a note, mamas: This show does include some sexual situations, and we’ve heard other moms say they think it’s best only for older teenagers and adults.
