This heartfelt musical tells the story of Percy Talbott, who has just been released from prison. In search of a new life, she travels to the small town of Gilead, Wisconsin, and gets a job at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. Her journey of renewal mirrors that of the town’s own reawakening in this celebration of fresh starts and the hope one person can offer an entire community.

E580 County Rd X, Glenwood City, WI 54013

Located about an hour east of the Twin Cities in the beautiful Wisconsin countryside.

There is a large open field directly off the main road that will be used for parking. Everwood volunteers will be coordinating the parking during the event.

Note for patrons who wish to make the trek to see it here, there is little to no cell service. Please pre-download any maps of the area if you plan on using Google Maps or Waze. It is a farm, so they are making improvements to the area but the vast majority of the grounds are unpaved which will make wheel chair access more difficult, though still do-able.
