The Spitfire Grill

Next in our season, based on the 1996 movie with the same name, will be
The Spitfire Grill by James Valcq and Fred Alley. This musical is about Percy Talbott, a
fiery woman straight out of prison trying to find her footing in the small town of Gilead.
The Spitfire Grill is an uplifting and inspirational musical that shows the power of what one
woman can do.

Cendrillon, based on Perrault's 1698 version of the Cinderella fairy tale will be
the third show of our season. Idaho State Theatre will be working alongside the Music
Department to perform the English version of this French Opera. This classic show is a wonderful story for young and old alike.

The Book of Will

Lauren Gunderson’s, The Book of Will, will be the last show of the season.
William Shakespeare’s been dead for three years. When a pirated, badly botched Hamlet
plays on a nearby stage, his closest friends decide what they need is a book—a definitive
copy of his original plays. But to make one, they’ll have to battle an unscrupulous
publisher. This show is a lively, funny, and poignant love letter to theatre and the printed word.
