Hit the Wall
By Ike Holter
Directed by Bo Frazier

January 31, February 1, 6, 7, 8 at 8:00 p.m.
February 2 at 2:00 p.m.
E.C. Mabie Theatre, UI Theatre Building

On a typical hot and humid New York City night in the summer of ‘69, a diverse group of queer outcasts gathers at The Stonewall Inn. However, on this night, when the police show up for a routine raid, all are thrust into the frontlines of history. A riot ensues that would launch the LGBTQ+ movement in America. With an original rock n’ roll score, emotional poetic language, and gritty choreography, Hit the Wall pays homage to these revolutionaries who came together 50 years ago to fight for their freedom.

This production contains extreme violence, intimacy, sexual content, adult language, and adult themes.

Theatre Production: The Spitfire Grill @ Armstrong Hall: Kimmel Theatre
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm

By Fred Alley, James Valcq, and Lee David Zlotoff; directed by Caroline Price. A feisty parolee follows her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she 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 cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.

A soul satisfying … work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The story moves, the characters have many dimensions and their transformations are plausible and moving. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows. – The New York Times
