UW-Madison alum Nimmer playing lead role of Percy in ‘The Spitfire Grill’

November 24, 2017

UW-Madison alumna Eva Nimmer is playing the role of Percy Talbott in the upcoming Four Seasons Theatre production of “The Spitfire Grill.”

Eva Nimmer
Fred Alley and James Valcq wrote "The Spitfire Grill," which is a Wisconsin story written by, performed by and produced by Wisconsin artists. It’s the winner of the Richard Rodgers Award.

Percy is a feisty parolee who follows her dreams to a small town in rural Wisconsin, where she finds work at the Spitfire Grill and carves out a place in the struggling community.

Nimmer received her BA in 2013 from the Department of Theatre and Drama, which today is housed in the School of Education.

“The Spitfire Grill” is being promoted as a celebration of fresh starts and reminds us of the power of what one person can do. It’s coming to the Overture Center’s Playhouse Dec. 1-10. For more details visit this Overture Center web page.
