FINAL WEEKEND FOR THE SPITFIRE GRILL MUSICAL AT CCT
There are only three more performances of the uplifting musical The Spitfire Grill at the Caribbean Community Theatre this weekend: Friday & Saturday, February 14 and 15 at 8 PM, and final show at 4 PM on Sunday, February 16th.
The Spitfire Grill is based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff, and is directed by Eileen Bishop Des Jardins, with music direction by Philippa Smith-Tyler. Cast in this show are Neil Admirari, Denise Blanchette, William Cooper, Abby Moon, Keith Moore, Judith Rodriguez, and Téa Wittmann.
This moving production with music and book by James Valcq, and lyrics and book by Fred Alley, tells the story of Percy, a young parolee who follows her dreams to a small town. She is soon working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill, which is up for sale. There are no buyers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so Percy suggests that Hannah raffle it off. Soon, lots of mail is arriving and things are definitely cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.
The band accompanying the singers consists of Philippa Smith-Tyler on piano, Tom Guthrie on guitar, Paul Knipler on keyboard, and Jim Reese on guitar.
“…Some of the most engaging and instantly infectious melodies I’ve heard in an original musical in some time.” – USA Today
