Ponca City Now - November 23, 2015 11:07 am

Ponca Playhouse auditions for the upcoming production of "Spitfire Grill: The Musical" will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23, and Tuesday, Nov. 24 at the playhouse, 301 South First Street.

Director of this production is Chris Williams. Performances are set for Jan. 15-17 and Jan. 22-24, 2016.

"The play is based on the non-musical movie about a small-town restaurant that is for sale," Williams said.

He said the story revolves around a young woman released from jail who gets a ticket and has to get a job as a restaurant cook to pay it.

The time comes when the restaurant must be sold. The owner decides to sell it by having a raffle among people who submit an essay and $100.

Along the way, the young woman befriends a war hero with a connection to the owner.
