In the Duke Theatre: The Spitfire Grill

Duke Theatre

One College Drive
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

Musical theatre returns to LTCC! Based on the hit 1996 movie, The Spitfire Grill is a heartwarming and inspirational musical tale of redemption, perseverance and family.

Percy Talbot has just been released from a five-year prison sentence and is trying to find a place for a fresh start. Based on a page from an old travel book, she heads to the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin. The local sheriff, Joe Sutter, who is also Percy's parole officer, finds her a job at Hannah's Spitfire Grill - the only eatery in this struggling town.

The Spitfire Grill is for sale. But with no interested buyers, Hannah decides to raffle it off. Entry fees are $100 and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrowfull and things are definitely getting hot at the Spitfire Grill.

This musical triumph is an inspiring celebration of fresh starts and the power of what one person can do.

The Black Ice Theatre Company’s production of The Spitfire Grill is directed by Richard S. Sargent, with choreography by Rhonda Keen and music direction by Sue Kinney Whitehouse.

Performances are June 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18 at 7:30pm, and June 12 at 2:30pm. All shows are held in LTCC's Duke Theatre, located in the Fine Arts building on campus. Tickets can be purchased securely online on the Black Ice Theatre Company’s website.

LTCC is located at One College Drive off of Al Tahoe Boulevard in the heart of South Lake Tahoe. Parking on campus is free and ample. Call (530) 541-4660 or visit for more information.
