Theater Production: The Spitfire Grill
Drama and Music announce our upcoming musical, the very popular The Spitfire Grill, Nov. 14 – 17, 7:30 pm in our very cozy Heiner Theatre. Tickets can be purchased at the door, $12 for general admission, $8 for students with ID. The Spitfire Grill, directed by Shawn Fuller, features some of Whatcom's most beautiful voices, a small musical ensemble, and set design by Russ Nelson. Please join us for this wonderful production and support the ensemble's incredible work.
The story concerns a feisty parolee who follows her dreams to small-town Wisconsin and who works at the only eatery in town, Hannah's Spitfire Grill. For sale but without takers, the diner's staff raffles off the restaurant in a nationwide essay contest, with the best entry explaining why they want the grill winning the restaurant. The contest brings mail by the wheelbarrow, people by the score, and fixes the spirits of those stuck in a dire time.
