Storyteller Productions presents “The Spitfire Grill”
When: November 10-11 at 7:30 p.m.; November 17 at 7:30 p.m.; November 18 at 1 p.m. or 7:30 p.m.; or November 19 at 2:30 p.m. Where: The Colonnade Center, 264 Catoosa Circle, Ringgold, GA 30736 Cost: $13-15
Storyteller Productions is pleased to present, by special agreement with Samuel French, The Spitfire Grill. A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah's Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin' at the Spitfire Grill. "A soul satisfying...work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The story moves, the characters have many dimensions and their transformations are plausible and moving. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows." - The New York Times. The Spitfire Grill is a musical of a different kind. There are no large dance numbers, but instead deep character development and a compelling story that draws you in. Join us PM for an incredible journey into second chances.

Come experience true local flavor and southern hospitality in a fun outdoor market atmosphere. OFM is a true farmers market: only local farmers selling products that they grew/raised/harvested themselves. No wholesalers or resellers allowed. All farms are inspected by the Market Manager to ensure that what you see is indeed locally grown. Most farms harvest in the morning before coming to market, so you get the freshest and highest quality foods possible. A variety of locally-grown products are available seasonally such as: vegetables, fruits, free-range eggs, mushrooms, meats (grass feed, no hormones or antibiotics), raw milk by herd share (cow or goat), jams & jellies, home baked breads & cookies, and much more. Know where your food comes from, and shake the hand of the farmer who grew it. Building relationships from farm to table creates a better community for us all.
