Percy, a young woman with a complicated past, is looking to start a new life in a small Wisconsin town that has seen better days. She finds work at THE SPITFIRE GRILL, a rundown diner with a disenfranchised proprietor. Through her sheer force of determination, optimism, and love, Percy is able to revitalize the grill and, in turn, the community. This comforting, folksy musical will get your toes tapping as you enter a world of hope, redemption, and some good ol’ breakfast.

THE SPITFIRE GRILL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
