Music and Book by James Valcq
This is a musical story about a town whose colorful days are lost in the pages of an old travel magazine and found by a feisty parolee, Percy, longing to see the world through new eyes. When Percy comes to the woodsy town of Gilead, she finds herself working at the only eatery in the town, the Spitfire Grill, and learns that its owner, Hannah, is as much a spitfire as the grill. Along with the rest of the town, Hannah wants nothing more than to be finished with the tired grill and the fading Gilead but she hasn’t been able to find a buyer so Percy suggests launching a raffle for the place. Entries send one hundred dollars and an essay about why you want the grill; the best essay wins the grill. The letters start blowing into the town like wildfire and gradually friendships, forgiveness, and trust starts to grow among the folks. Soon there’s hope that the colors might begin to return and bring life back to Gilead and the Spitfire Grill.
