Six mid-pubescent kids vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime! While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, these eclectic tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words hoping to never 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! Winner of numerous awards — including the Tony Award for best book of a musical — this giddy and charming musical celebrates the trials and tribulations of adolescence while reminding us that, deep down inside, everyone is a winner!
