This Tony Award-winning musical comedy features music and lyrics by William Finn, and is based on the book by Rachel Sheinkin. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime in this quirky story. 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-unaffirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
