An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming 'ding' of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. This Tony and Drama Desk award-winning musical has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Performances Friday and Saturday, March 6, 7, 13 & 14 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, March 8 & 15 at 2 PM.
