THE SPITFIRE GRILL Charity Partnership, July 9th-2:00pm

Join them for this special Saturday Matinee benefiting SAFE SHELTER Center for Domestic Violence Services. 20% of the ticket sales from this performance will go directly to this wonderful Savannah organization. Their mission is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims and promote change in lives, families, and our community. Go to SafeShelter.org for more information or to donate directly. THE SPITFIRE GRILL is an American musical with music & book by James Valcq and lyrics & book by Fred Alley, based on the 1996 film by Lee David Zlotoff.

THE STORY: 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. The Grill is for sale, but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy convinces Hannah to raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the Grill wins. Soon, mail arrives by the wheelbarrow and things really start cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.

No.1

Savannah Screening of Last of the Right Whales, July 12th-6:30pm

From the only known calving grounds to the shifting feeding grounds, the award-winning LAST OF THE RIGHT WHALES follows the North Atlantic right whale migration and the people committed to saving a species still struggling to recover from centuries of hunting. Now climate change is forcing right whales further north in search of food, putting them on a collision course with deadly ships and fishing gear.

North Atlantic right whales (Georgia’s State mammal) are dying faster than they can reproduce. With less than 350 remaining, these great whales rarely die of natural causes. Instead, they are run over by ships or suffer lethal injuries from fishing gear. If we don’t stop killing them, in 20 years they could be extinct. With unprecedented access to film the right whale migration, LAST OF THE RIGHT WHALES brings a message of hope about the most at-risk great whale on the planet.

The film will be followed by an audience Q&A with whale experts.
