Presented by Ocala Civic Theatre at Ocala Civic Theatre, Ocala FL

Feb 08 - 25 2024

Order up! The musical THE SPITFIRE GRILL is live on stage February 8-25 at Ocala Civic Theatre.

Just out of jail, young Percy Talbott is looking for a new beginning in the little town of Gilead, Wisconsin – a place she chose from a picture of autumn in a travel book. She’s hoping to find the colors of paradise, but instead she finds a frozen ghost town of ice and snow. The sheriff gets her a job as a waitress at the local diner, The Spitfire Grill – much to the displeasure of the tough old bird who owns it. Before long, the rough-edged new girl is the talk of the town, and the diner is buzzing with gossip. Then Percy cooks up a new idea that would change everything for everyone in Gilead. It’s hard to say if trouble is brewing or if redemption is simmering on the back burner. Based on the 1996 film of the same name, this lovely and haunting musical shines with a folk-flavored score of songs. Starring Allison Elliott, Ellen Burstyn, and Marcia Gay Harden, the movie won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. This 2001 off-Broadway stage adaptation is as luminous as the ring around the moon, a winter’s tale with a warm and generous heart – and a fresh start on the side.
