Enter to win tickets to “Waitress”

Theresa Tanner

A mouthwatering musical is coming to Spokane, and this is your chance to win two free tickets! Spokane7 wants to send you to opening night of STCU Best of Broadway’s “Waitress” on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at First Interstate Center for the Arts (formerly INB Performing Arts Center).

Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, “Waitress” tells the story of diner waitress and expert pie maker Jenna, who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. Will a baking contest and the town's new doctor offer her a chance at a fresh start? While her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness, Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.

Featuring original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles ("Brave," "Love Song"), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson ("I Am Sam"), choreography by Lorin Latarro ("Les Dangereuse Liasons," "Waiting for Godot") and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus ("Hair," "Pippin," "Finding Neverland"), "Waitress" will visit Spokane Dec. 12-16; single tickets are available.

To enter, visit Win Tickets to ‘Waitress.’ Spokane7 will randomly draw and contact two winners on Monday, Nov. 26. See Contest Rules for details.
