William Jewell College Theatre presents “The Spitfire Grill” March 24-28 at Peters Theater on the lower (theater) level of Brown Hall on the campus in Liberty, Mo. Curtain time is 7 p.m. March 24 through 27, with a 2 p.m. matinee on March 27 and 28. Ticket prices are $6 and can be purchased by contacting the theater box office at 816-415-7590. Discounted tickets are available for students and senior citizens.

Based on the 1996 independent film, the musical adaptation of “The Spitfire Grill” was an off-Broadway hit when it opened in September of 2001 at New York’s Playwrights Horizons. The show received best musical nominations from the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama League and was included in New York Magazine’s “Best of 2001” listings. Hailed by the Associated Press as “a lovely new musical in the Rodgers and Hammerstein tradition,” the show has been staged in more than 300 regional and international productions.

The musical depicts the journey of a young woman just released from prison who decides to start her life anew in a rural Wisconsin town. Her presence precipitates a journey within the town itself toward its own tenuous reawakening. Hope and redemption, the power of unconditional love and the beauty of small town life are among the enduring themes explored in the music and book by James Valcq and the lyrics and book by Fred Alley.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
