Music and Book by James Valcq
Lyrics and Book by Fred Alley
Directed by Sue Cook
Musical Direction by Connie Taws

The Spitfire Grill is an uplifting and inspiring story of personal redemption and the reawakening of a small town. A soul-satisfying musical with amiable tunes and lyrics that are more “folk” than “broadway". The Spitfire Grill is a compelling story that flows with grace and carries a rush of anticipation. If you need any reason at all to embrace life again, this is the musical you've been waiting for.

All performances at the Huronia Players Theatre - Midland Cultural Centre
