Auditions for "The Spitfire Grill" Show
Production of "The Spitfire Grill" needs male and female singers 7 actors. See more details listed below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: The Spitfire Grill is a folksy musical about redemption, family, and love. 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.
