The health and safety of our audiences, artists, and staff is our highest priority. We are committed to providing a clean and safe environment and are following guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in coordination with university, state, and local public health officials. As such, all Stephens Auditorium events are proceeding as planned, including Waitress on March 12 and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood on March 18. Extra precautions like extensive cleaning and frequent disinfecting protocols are in place in our theater. We will remain vigilant and are prepared to make decisions based on current needs, as well as in response to changing conditions. Anyone who has a fever or cough is encouraged to stay home and contact the Iowa State Center Ticket Office at ticketoffice@iastate.edu or (515) 294-2479 for more information about ticket exchanges.

Inspired by the beloved film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town. A baking contest and the town’s new doctor may offer her a fresh start, but Jenna must summon the strength to rebuild her own life. Don’t miss this uplifting celebration of friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
