The Spitfire Grill
September 13 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$20 – $25
A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. The Grill is for sale, but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy convinces Hannah to raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the Grill wins. Soon, mail arrives by the wheelbarrow and things really start cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.
With music and lyrics by James Valcq, lyrics and book by Fred Alley, it is based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff. The Brookfield production will be directed and musical directed by Steven Olivieri. Auditions will be held in July.
Shows are September 13 – 28 on Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees on Sunday at 2PM. There will be a free preview for area senior citizens on Thursday, September 12 at 8 PM.
