Location: Ridgewater College Auditorium

This musical comedy, by Rachel Sheinkin with musical score by William Finn, centers on several socially awkward middle school students (played by adults) competing in a regional spelling by. Six quirky adolescents compete in the spelling bee, run by three equally quirky, awkward adults. Flashbacks and imagination are used to reveal personal details about each of the spellers that explores the notion that winning isn’t everything. In addition, audience members participate in the show as contestants and as family members of the contestants.
