A small town, second chances, lonely hearts, secrets, town gossip, accidents and fear mixed with hope and new beginnings. Is this your town? Is this every town? Northport Music Theater presents The Spitfire Grill. Don't confuse this with the movie. And don't make assumptions about small town musical theater until you've read the bios of the actors and musicians, not to mention the director, the founders of the theater and many others associated with the group. There's some serious professional talent and experience represented at this small, intimate theater. Being in the audience is like being IN the Spitfire Grill- or the cafe of your choice- without having to sing any solos or know any lines.
