Carey Dinner Theatre Presents The Spitfire Grill

Hattiesburg, MS, June 11, 2014 - Carey Dinner Theatre (CDT) will present the musical drama “The Spitfire Grill” June 12 – 28  in the Joe and Virginia Tatum Theatre on the Hattiesburg campus of William Carey University.
Sponsors for the 39th season are Bancorp South, William Carey University, and an anonymous friend of CDT.  

“The Spitfire Grill” tells the heart-warming journey of Percy, a young woman just released from prison, who starts life over in a small American town. Percy and the locals share drama, family secrets, gossip and forgiveness in frequently funny, sometimes touching encounters. The Associated Press describes “Spitfire” as “a lovely musical in the Rodgers and Hammerstein tradition,” and the New York Times called it “a soul satisfying work of theatrical resourcefulness”.  “Spitfire” was written by James Valcq with lyrics and book by Fred Alley, and is based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff.

CDT’s next production will be “Pump Boys and Dinettes,” a musical comedy set at a garage and road-side diner, July 8 - 19.
