Overachieving outsiders vie for spelling supremacy and the chance to fit in. In this hilarious and often moving Broadway musical comedy, which includes volunteer audience spellers, winning isn’t everything and losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser.

This production contains mature themes. Viewer discretion is advised.
