The first-ever UK and Ireland tour of Broadway and West End musical Waitress arrives at Manchester Opera House November 30 to December 5.

Full casting to be announced.

Waitress is based on the 2007 movie written by Adrienne Shelley. Music and lyrics are written by Sara Bareilles, who recently appeared on the Graham Norton TV show performing the hit song from the show “She Used To Be Mine”.

With a book by Jessie Nelson, direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus and choreography by Lorin Latarro, Waitress has garnered multiple awards and nominations in both America and the UK.

It tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life.

A musical that celebrates friendship, motherhood and the magic of a well-made pie.
