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.

Sweet news!

Just when you thought Loblolly was disappearing from the freezers of The Rep when Elf closed last weekend, we have a pretty awesome announcement: we will be carrying the popular creamery’s ice creams for the remainder of the 2014-2015 MainStage Season.

That means for The Whipping Man, Mary Poppins and August: Osage County, you’ll be able to satisfy your sweet tooth with their incredible frozen treats!

For the first time ever, we partnered with Little Rock’s popular ice cream shop to create a special treat for patrons for the holiday musical Elf and because of its overwhelming response, we have decided to continue carrying their yummy ice creams.

For our upcoming drama The Whipping Man, which will run from Jan. 23-Feb. 8, patrons can expect a couple of Loblolly’s popular staples, while for Mary Poppins, fans can look forward to another limited edition flavor, just like Rep-permint Chunk for Elf!

Check back in February when we announce the special Mary Poppins flavor and the dates for our second naming contest.

Don’t miss your chance to get your sweet fix at The Rep through June and get your tickets to our upcoming production The Whipping Man online or by calling the Box Office at (501) 378-0405.
