Better late than never!

Last up in our production series is highlighting something sweet: our special Mary Poppins-inspired ice cream from Loblolly Creamery!

For the second time this season, we partnered with Little Rock’s popular ice cream shop to create a special treat for patrons: sweet cream ice cream with brownie chunks. After Loblolly created this special concoction reminiscent of the magical chimney sweeps in the production, the next thing that was in order was naming it.

In February, we launched an Mary Poppins Ice Cream Naming Contest where we asked fans to submit names for the ice cream that incorporated The Rep name and showcased the flavor.

The response was overwhelming. We received more than 200 entries into the contest and as you can imagine, it was pretty difficult to narrow it down, but we did. Here are the top 5 that were chosen:

  1. Chim Chim Cher-REP, Anna-Lee Pittman
  2. Super Creamy Brownie-licious, Stephanie Hamling
  3. Chimney Sweet, Neena Grissom
  4. Brownie REPrise, Abby Barker
  5. REPialidocious, Lucy Speed
  6. BONUS: Hupp-Town Chunk You Up!, Catherine DiVito
Anna-Lee Pittman and her winning name Chim Chim Cher-REP!

After days of voting, Anna-Lee Pittman’s “Chim Chim Cher-REP” was crowned the coveted winner of the contest. She won a pint of the special flavor with her name on the carton and a pair of tickets to see Mary Poppins!

You still have time to enjoy this magical treat– the special ice cream is being sold at Loblolly Creamery, located inside the Green Corner Store, 1423 Main St., Suite D, Little Rock, and at The Rep through mid-April.

Don’t miss your chance to try this one-of-a-kind sweet treat celebrating our magical production and get your tickets to Mary Poppins online or by calling the Box Office at (501) 378-0405. The show ends Sunday, April 12.
