How do Waitress Cast Album Karaoke nights work?
All you have to do is purchase tickets to Waitress for either 19 February or 18 March and sign up with a Waitress representative in the lobby before the start of the show or during the interval. Be sure to give them your name and the Waitress song you wish to sing. Don't forget that you can sign up as an individual or as a duo, trio, or group and make sure you mention this to the representative when you sign up. Please note that individuals or groups will be permitted to sing only once.
After the show's cast take their final bows, remain in your seats and the karaoke will begin immediately following the performance. If your name is called, come on up and let your talent shine! Worried you won't remember all the lyrics? Never fear! Lyric books will be at the ready for your reference so you can focus on your voice and not the words! The show's musical director, Katharine Woolley, will also be right there to guide you through every step of the way.
