This Tony Award winning musical tells the hilarious, yet heartwarming, story of a group of six anxiety-ridden, overachieving adolescents vying for the spelling bee championship of a lifetime. The children are overseen by a gathering of adults who barely managed to escape childhood themselves. During the Bee, the colorful contestants learn that winning isn’t everything and losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. Adding to the delight of the Bee is the unique twist that audience members, who volunteer prior to curtain time, join the contestants on stage insuring a fun and different evening of theater, night after night. This musical will BEE worth your time this summer!
