With “some of the most engaging and instantly infectious melodies,” (USA Today) this sincere and optimistic musical tells the story of newly released parolee, Percy, who is ready to leave her past behind and look towards a future in the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. Upon her arrival she gets a job working at the titular Spitfire Grill for gruff Hannah, who has been looking to unload the grill due to hurtful memories. Percy soon becomes instrumental in changing the lives of the people in Gilead and with the help of timid Shelby, devises a plan to raffle the grill off with an essay contest.
The Naples Players’ auditions are open to all interested persons, regardless of age, race or experience. All that is required is the desire to be involved in a production and the willingness to commit time and effort to the project.
