January 24 - February 2, 2020
Annual Staff Show
Directed by The Spelling Bee Cast
Choreography by Laurel Peabody
Musical Direction by Ann Voglesang
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. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
