About The Spitfire Grill
A feisty parolee (Percy) follows her dream based upon a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah's “Spitfire Grill.” It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town. Newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow! Things are definitely “cookin!” at the Spitfire Grill.
The Spitfire Grill is an American musical with music and book by James Valcq and lyrics and book by Fred Alley, based on the 1996 film of the same name by Lee David Zlotoff.
The ConVal High School Drama department is co-produced by Elizabeth Moore and Liz Halper. Each season features a musical, a play, a student-directed festival, student-directed play and an entry into the New Hampshire Educational Theatre Festival. Both ConVal High School faculty and community members direct a series of productions and workshops throughout the season. Student leaders in the International Thespian Society #7883 support the season through student-led crews and other theatrical events and activities.
The department also supports the efforts of the Contoocook Visual and Performing Arts Center. More information on their mission is available at http://convalvpac.org/.
