2012-13 Season

The Spitfire Grill

music and book by James Valcq

lyrics & book by Fred Alley

In a small town in rural Wisconsin, something miraculous is happening.  Percy, a feisty parolee with a dark past begins working at The Spitfire Grill, a depressed eatery run by Hannah, an elderly woman with a sharp tongue. Percy’s arrival sets off a chain of events that springs the town, its inhabitants and the titular diner, back to life.  This warm and spirited musical is filled with country flavored tunes that feed and nourish the soul.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a city slicker or a country bumpkin – you’ll be glad you made a reservation this fall at The Spitfire Grill.
