Winner of both Tony and Drama Desk awards, this musical features an
eclectic ensemble of tween characters who vie for the spelling championship
of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and heartfelt angst,
these adolescents spell their way through a series of esoteric words in a
quest to avoid the soul-crushing, pout-inducing "ding" of the bell which
signals a mistake and necessitates a quick exit from the competition. With
it's fast-paced and wildly funny, yet poignant, script and a truly fresh
score, this bee is a riotous ride complete with audience participation.
With: Jim Adams, John Carter, Shane Conrad, Todd Hines, Christa Kronser,
Marie Nearing, Pamela Northrup, Rachel Pino-Elliott, and Joey Rolandelli
