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

 

begins.

 

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.
