Something's Cookin' at the Spitfire Grill!
(Le Mars) -- The Le Mars Community Theater is busy staging their new production of "The
Spitfire Grill" which open next weekend. The musical is a story of renewal and redemption,
that the 7 member cast is working to portray.
The show is about a woman, named Percy, who comes to a small town in Wisconsin after
having served time in prison. She meets her parole officer, Sheriff Joe Sutter, and begins
working at The Spitfire Grill, owned by Hannah. The town crier, Effy, starts talking about
the new addition to the staff, and soon Hannah's nephew Caleb and his wife Shelby are
involved. When Percy suggests that Hannah try to raffle off the Grill, the fun really
Cast members include: Donna Muilenburg as Hannah, Margaret Britton as Effy, Mark and Beth
Strub as Caleb and Shelby, Angela Riedeman as Percy, Larry Brangwin as the mysterious
visitor, and Richard Buman as Sheriff Joe.
Buman is new to the Postal Playhouse stage, but he's no stranger to the theater. Buman was
employed professionally with theaters in Chicago and San Diego for 10 years, working behind
the scenes. He says the transition to community theater has been all about managing
expectations and enjoying the process.
What has been the best part of joining the Le Mars Community Theater family? He says that's
easy...it's the people.
He has also enjoyed learning the music for the show and says the songs are much more
conversational than what you find in most musicals.
"The Spitfire Grill" runs next Friday, Saturday and Sunday and then Wednesday through Sunday
the following week. Evening performances are at 7:30pm with Sunday matinees at 2pm.
Reservations can be made by contacting the Postal Playhouse between 11 and 2 Monday-Friday
