NGU Theatre to Present 'The Spitfire Grill'

The North Greenville University School of Theatre's second main stage production of the 2016-17 show season is fast approaching. Beginning November 10, the Spitfire Grill featuring the music and book by James Valcq and lyrics and book by Fred Alley will be presented in the Billingsley Theatre. Based on the film by Lee David Zlotoff, this folk musical is a story about new beginnings that will be sure to touch your heart. 

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 $100, and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow-full, and things are definitely getting hot at the Spitfire Grill.

The production is directed by school of theatre chair Amy Dunlap and music director Seth Killen, professor in the Cline School of Music.

Performances will run for two weekends: Thursday, November 10 through Saturday, November 12, and Thursday, November 17 through Saturday, November 19. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. nightly. Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for students. Order tickets online or contact Marnie Daniel at 864.977.7085. For more information.
