In honor of National Pie Day on January 23rd, the Providence Performing Arts Center and "WAITRESS" are announcing that PPAC will be hosting a creative pie recipe contest. The winning entry wins tickets to see "Waitress" at the theater.
Creating recipes and baking pies allows Jenna, the show’s protagonist, to express herself and offers a sweet escape from her life. Her magical creations have names like, “Marshmallow Mermaid Pie” and “A Little Wild, Wild Berry Pie.”
The show is looking for recipes that are inspired by Jenna’s whimsical concoctions.All interested participants are invited to email their recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5P EST on Friday, March 8. In your email, please include your recipe, contact information (name, phone, mailing address), and the source or creator of your recipe for crediting purposes. Three finalists will be selected. Each finalist will be asked to bake their pie and present it to a judging panel. Judges and specific dates will be announced at a later time.
The winner of the contest will receive four (4) tickets to see WAITRESS at the Providence Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, May 28 at 7P. Their recipe will be featured as an insert in the first 50 official WAITRESS cookbooks (Sugar, Butter, Flour: The Waitress Pie Book), sold at each performance of WAITRESS at PPAC. The Providence Journal will also print the winning recipe in the paper’s Food Section. "WAITRESS" will perform at the Providence Performing Arts Center May 28 – June 2, 2019.
