Oregon Cabaret Theatre to reopen with 'The Spitfire Grill'
The Ashland dinner theater, 241 Hargadine St., on the corner of First and Hargadine streets, presents “The Spitfire Grill,” a new take on the hit musical, with the cast playing their own instruments as an onstage orchestra. The theater is reopening Friday, Feb. 26, with limited seating, and the play is scheduled to run through April 18.
In the show, Percy, a parolee just released from prison, arrives in a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill, the only eatery in a struggling town. It is for sale, but there are no takers, 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. Directed by Valerie Rachelle.
Performances are set for 1 p.m. Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, and at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, Mondays and select Wednesday nights, beginning Friday, Feb. 26, through Sunday, April 18. Tickets are $43 or $39. Reservations are required for pre-show dinner and brunch. Appetizers, beverages and desserts are available without reservations. Student rush tickets are $15 and can be purchased 30 minutes before curtain.
COVID-19 safety measures include masks being worn at all times when not eating, temperature checks at the door, tables 6 feet apart and 12 feet from performers, and limited capacity (maximum of 42 patrons to adhere to Jackson County’s “high risk” status).
