THE SPITFIRE GRILL A MUSICAL
NOW ON STAGE AT PALM BEACH DRAMA WORKS
The Spitfire Grill, a warm and uplifting show about starting over, and second chances, forgiveness and redemption, becomes the first musical to be produced by Palm Beach Dramaworks as part of its new season.
This internationally beloved work is now open, and runs through February 24, 2019. Previous musicals that were produced at the theatre received great reviews and were a big success with the audiences. Many of them, asked about the possibility of including a musical during this season, and they quickly agreed. The Spitfire Grill was the perfect choice with its complex characters, powerful themes and a really wonderful score.
This folk musical tells the story of Percy Talbott, a young parolee looking for a fresh start in Gilead, Wisconsin, a (fictional) town that one of its inhabitants calls “a place for leaving, not for coming to.” As Percy adjusts to her new life, she and the town begin to awaken together.
The show is very different from the film. It has been presented more than 500 times throughout the country and around the world. For ticket prices and show time information call the Don and Ann Brown Theatre at 561-514-4042 located at 201 Clematis Street or visit online at www.palmbeachdramaworks.org

MEET THE PRODUCERS
A MEL BROOKS MUSICAL
AT THE STAGE DOOR THEATRE’S NEW HOME IN LAUDERHILL
Based on Mel Brooks’classic 1968 film, The Producers is the story of Max Bialystock, the one time King of Broadway producers hungry to strike it rich, and Leo Bloom, an accountant with dreams of someday becoming a theatre producer. They discover that they could get richer by producing a flop than a hit, and start by finding the worst show, worst director, and worst actors. When their new production “Springtime for Hitler” turns out to be a smash success, the plan is thrown off and the partners' lives are thrown into chaos.
With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of show stopping musical numbers, and Brook’s signature humor keeping audiences in stitches. The Producers won 12 out of its nominations, setting the record for most wins in history, and becoming one of the few musicals to win in every category for which it was nominated. It received two nominations for leading actor, and three for featured actor, which still stands today. The Producers is now on stage through February 10, 2019. Tickets are $48 and $58 at Ticketmaster or theatre box office, located at their new address 3800 N.W. 11th Place, Lauderhill. For more information call 954-344-7765 or 954-777-2055.
