Tony Awards Party Food Ideas
Come From Away
Since Come From Away is based in Newfoundland, Canada, it would be a shame not to include a native dish! Toutons are pieces of fried dough that are generally found on breakfast menus. All you need is a bit of leftover white bread dough and some hot oil. Then you can dress up your toutons with whatever you have in your kitchen. From eggs and bacon to maple syrup, the possibilities are endless.

Come From Away involves characters being stuck on an aeroplane for hours on end, and having nothing to eat other than aeroplane snacks. We suggest serving your guests typical aeroplane snacks like pretzels. These pretzels are seasoned, but you don’t have to go to the extra effort. If you want to make the snacks more aeroplane-esque, you could even make little baggies for your pretzels!

Dear Evan Hansen
Apple Pie à la Mode
One of the songs in Dear Evan Hansen references eating ice cream and visiting an apple orchard, so dining on apple pie à la mode is only fitting. It’s also a classically American dessert, perfect for a new American musical. You can either make your apple pie from scratch or pick some up at the supermarket. You can find a recipe for apple pie à la mode here!
Baseball Glove Cookies
Another song in Dear Evan Hansen is about breaking in a baseball glove, so baseball cookies would fit right in! These cookies require a fair bit of cookie decorating skills, but you can have some fun with it. Plus, they’re basic sugar cookies so the baking process won’t be too laborious. Find a recipe for baseball glove cookies here.
Sticky buns play a key role in both the film and musical version of Groundhog Day, so we’re including a simple recipe in this post. These sticky buns are the perfect Tony Awards party food if you need an extra dessert or want to have a breakfast-centred meal. Unlike many bread recipes, this recipe doesn’t require a bread machine, which means it’ll be much easier (and cheaper!) to make. Find the recipe by clicking here.
Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812
Before the start of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, the ensemble throws boxed piroshki into the audience. This is meant to make the audience feel like they are in 19th-century Russia, where the show is set. The piroshki in the show are traditional Russian potato and onion piroshki, which is what is pictured above. You can make them at home by following this recipe!
Given that The Great Comet is set in 19th-century Russia, serving Russian vodka is only fitting. You don’t need a recipe for this one, but just head over to your local liquor store and pick up some decent quality Russian vodka!
Bonus: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar
It may not be one of the Best Musical nominees, but that doesn’t mean that we need to exclude Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from our Tony Awards party food ideas! While you can’t find chocolate bars with real golden tickets in a shop, you can make them at home. We found a simple DIY Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar, complete with free printables. All you need to do is find some large chocolate bars, print off the labels, and start your DIY!
