WAITRESS Comes To Starlight Theatre For One Week Only

Performances run May 17-22.

Starlight has announced that Waitress will play under the stars for one week only May 17-22. Waitress is an uplifting musical that celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

"Waitress is a fan-favorite that features a moving story of female empowerment," Rich Baker, President + C.E.O. of Starlight, said. "With an impressive all-female creative team including music by pop icon Sara Bareilles, the diner is 'Opening Up' May 17 for one week only-and you won't want to miss it."

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who 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 encounter 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.
