Rutgers–Camden Theater celebrates spring with a heartwarming musical, The Spitfire Grill, opening on March 31. It tells the story of Percy Talbott, a feisty parolee who follows her dreams to a small town where she finds herself working at the local diner. It is an inspirational tale of redemption, perseverance, and family that The New York Times calls “a soul-satisfying work of theatrical resourcefulness.”
The show is directed and choreographed by Ellie Mooney, part-time lecturer of theater and dance; the musical direction is by Chris Burcheri, who regularly conducts the musicals at Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre. The cast of Rutgers–Camden students is headed by sophomore theater major Taylor Eccles.
When: Thursday, March 31st – Saturday, April 2nd: 7:30 pm, and Sunday, April 3rd, 2:00 pm
Where: Walter K. Gordon Theater
