A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on 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, so 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 full and things are definitely cookin' at the Spitfire Grill.
“Spitfire Grill, The” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Under the Spotlight
The Drama Department is committed to providing a comprehensive theatre education to our students and bringing the results to the community through vibrant, thought-provoking productions. We currently produce one production per semester.
Many students who are interested in theatre are eager to begin their careers. The Theatre Arts Certificate program will give them sufficient training to be able to join the professional work force without obtaining a B.A. They will obtain a wider range of knowledge and skills associated with the theatre, increasing their chances of working in the theatre in some capacity, whether it be in acting, stage management, or technical theatre. The practicum requirement also gives them practical experience working on an actual production. Students who wish to pursue an A.A. or B.A. may still choose the Communication Arts/Theatre Option program. Learn More
