Footlighters' "Spitfire Grill" Runs Through Nov. 23

Footlighters' second show of the 2019-20 season is now playing at the Stained Glass Theater in Newport.

The Spitfire Grill is based on the 1996 film, and is the story of Percy, a feisty parolee who follows her dreams to small-town Wisconsin where she up working at an old diner. The owner wants to sell, so Percy suggests a raffle, with entry fees of $100.

When mail starts to arrive by the wheelbarrow, the show really takes off with a score filled with country, bluegrass, and folk influences.

Dan Maloney directs.

Remaining performances are Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 14-16, at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m.; and Wednesday through Saturday, Nov. 20-23, at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets: $22 each and are available at 859.652.3849 or [email protected]
