School Series Spitfire Grill

The Spitfire Grill
Music and book by James Valcq
Lyrics and book by Fred Alley
Based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff
Directed by Ed Cohn
Based on the hit film, “The Spitfire Grill” is a heartwarming and inspirational musical tale of redemption, perseverance and family. Percy Talbot is looking for a fresh start. Based on a torn page from an old travel book, she travels to the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. There, she finds a new life working at the Spitfire Grill. The folks in this depressed town have more to worry about than Percy’s past, but fear and hesitancy turn to friendship when Percy schemes to revive the old grill by raffling it off. Entry fees are $100, and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full. This musical triumph is an inspiring celebration of fresh starts and the power of what one person can do.
