Phamaly Theatre Company: The Spitfire Grill
part of The Forward Festival of the Arts
The Claire Shulman Theater
Comforting and folksy, The Spitfire Grill is a musical that will get your toes tapping as you enter a world of hope, redemption, and some good ol’ breakfast. Percy is a young woman with a complicated past, who is looking to start a new life in a small Wisconsin town that has seen better days. She finds work at THE SPITFIRE GRILL, a rundown diner with a disenfranchised proprietor. Through her sheer force of determination, optimism, and love, Percy is able to revitalize the grill and, in turn, the community.
Now in its fourth decade as a homegrown, award-winning Denver arts organization, Phamaly Theatre Company produces professional plays, musicals, and original work, cast entirely of performers with disabilities. Phamaly’s mission is to be a creative home for theatre artists with disabilities; to model a disability-affirmative theatrical process; and to upend conventional narratives by transforming individuals, audiences, and the world.
