Concordia University Theatre presents The Spitfire Grill, a heartwarming and inspirational American musical with music and the book by James Valcq and lyrics and the book by Fred Alley, based on the 1996 film of the same name.

The Spitfire Grill is a story of redemption, perseverance, and family, centered on Percy Talbott, a young woman newly released from prison. Seeking to start life over, Percy chooses the town of Gilead, Wisconsin, after seeing a beautiful image in an old travel book.

As Percy begins working at the town’s Spitfire Grill, she discovers that Gilead and its residents have experienced their own losses. And the Grill is for sale, but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy convinces owner Hannah to raffle it off, a project that energizes the whole town. Along the way, characters discover home and hope, sometimes in surprising places.
