She Kills Monsters
by Qui Nguyen
March 10-19, 2022

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans, a young woman grieving for her deceased sister. The Evans sisters never were especially close, but after Tilly's death Agnes resolves a notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister. She discovers that Tilly was well-known Dungeons and Dragons player, and that she was passionate about online fantasy gaming. In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a "dungeon master" named Chuck to help her understand and grieve Tilly. Chock-full of supermodel elves, dominatrix warrior women, and nasty ogres, She Kills Monsters is a surprisingly sweet tale of friendship, loss, and acceptance.

THE SPITFIRE GRILL
by Fred Alley & James Valcq

June 9-19, 2022

To a town with no future, comes a woman with a past.

Based on the hit 1996 film, 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 travels 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 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 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.
