About this Event

Based on the 1996 film starring Alison Elliott, Ellen Burstyn and Marcia Gay Harden and set to music by James Valcq and Fred Alley. Winner of the Richard Rodgers Production Award

Synopsis: Percy Talbot has just been released from a five year prison sentence for manslaughter. She is trying to find a place for a fresh start, and based on a page from an old travel book, travels to the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. The local sheriff, Joe Sutter, who is also Percy’s parole officer, finds her a job at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill – the only eatery in this struggling town. The Spitfire Grill is for sale, but with no interested buyers, Hannah decides to raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full. This musical triumph is an inspiring celebration of fresh starts, friendship, and the power of hope.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUDIENCE MEMBERS:

* This show deals with mature themes. Not recommended for children under 13.

The Spitfire Grill will be performed in the North Hall Seminary Chapel which is located at the furthest NW point of FPU's main campus- inside the corner of Butler and Chestnut. This location can be difficult to find, so PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY in order to secure parking and find the theater space. We want you to have the BEST experience with FPU Theater, so please plan accordingly. Thank you!
