Remember those middle school years — trying to fit in as a mid-pubescent tween — in search of what makes you, you? If you were athletic, then maybe you found your way on a sports team. If you were a nerd, then maybe you entered the 6th grade spelling bee! Winner of the Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, this musical takes us back to that awkward stage of life as six of the most eccentric kids in the school district vie for the coveted title. With the audience serving as the county’s community members, Spelling Bee is fast-paced and uproariously funny, with moving stories that are certain to leave a tear in your eye.
