On Sunday, March 7, at Music Hall the Celebrity Chefs Tour will present, AN EVENING WITH PAULA DEEN AND FAMILY.  Nationally renowned restaurateur, television chef and cook book author, Paula Deen is one of the most recognizable and popular in the group of those who can be called "celebrity chef."  Deen and her family will give each audience member a rare opportunity to share a delicious evening with the icons they have come to know and love on TV.

In addition to the live stage event at Music Hall, a limited number of tickets are being offered for a pre-show dinner taking place at 5:30 p.m. at Corbett Tower, where guests will share in a rare opportunity to enjoy a special dinner with Paula Deen and family prior to their show. This special one-time experience includes a three course meal, one glass of wine, an autographed book, and one-on-one interaction with Paula Deen and Family.

Paula Deen is best known for her "down-home" personality and traditional Southern cooking. For this special on stage event, Deen and Family will present an evening of cooking demonstrations, story-telling, Q and A, and generally a lot of good fun. This staged event will be fully equipped with big screens to ensure that all audience members receive a clear view of the on stage demonstrations.

Paula Deen has authored nine cookbooks, publishes the magazine "Cooking with Paula Deen", and stars in three TV shows on the Food Network, "Paula's Home Cooking,"  "Paula's Party," and "Paula's Best Dishes."  Jamie and Bobby Deen were once well-known as the sons of Paula Deen, but today they are stars in their own right. Having made many appearances on their mother's Food Network show, they currently star on their own Food Network show "Road Tasted." Paula and her sons own and operate the popular restaurant, The Lady & Sons, in Savannah, Georgia.

Along with traditional theatre seating at Music Hall, there are two special seating options. An extremely limited number of premium on-stage seats will allow some guests an up-close-and-personal experience just feet away from the action. Audience members in these seats will also receive samples of the dishes prepared on stage and just may be asked to come up and help stir a pot, chop a vegetable, or mix some ingredients. In addition, the first several rows of the center section of the orchestra seating are being sold as a VIP package which includes a pre- show meet-and-greet with Paula Deen and family, along with an autographed book.

Tickets for AN EVENING WITH PAULA DEEN AND FAMILY are on sale now, and are available for purchase online at or by phone at 513-621-ARTS.
