TIFTON—When a young woman winds up in a small Wisconsin town to “find herself,” she finds much more than she bargained for. Her journey of self-renewal will come to life on stage when the Baldwin Players at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College present “The Spitfire Grill” on March 26-28.
The performance will begin at 7 p.m. each night in ABAC’s Howard Auditorium. Tickets are $10 per person, $5 for students with an ID, and free to ABAC students, staff, and faculty. Tickets can be purchased online at www.purplepass.com/ABAC or by calling (229) 391-4895.
“This is a very interesting show,” Dr. Brian Ray, Director of the Baldwin Players and a Professor of English and Theatre at ABAC, said. “The musical is a little different than the film, so audiences should come expecting a little twist.
“The music is very good. It’s a mix of country, folk, and some up tempo, knee-slapping fun stuff, too.”
Cast members include Alena Norton, an ABAC graduate from Tifton, as Percy Talbott; Ryan Norton, an ABAC graduate from Tifton, as Sheriff Joe Sutter; Sommer Dunston, an ABAC graduate from Tifton, as Hannah Ferguson; and Lee Hancock, a Nursing-ASN major from Tifton, as Caleb Thorpe.
Other cast members include Hannah Exum, an agricultural education major from Nashville, as Effy Krayneck; Anna Weldon, a biology major from Omega, as Shelby Thorpe; and Luke Hillman, a history and government major from Sparks, as The Visitor.
