Recommended for ages 13+. A hilarious, Tony Award-winning musical that follows six over-achieving and awkward adolescents on their quest for the spelling championship of a lifetime. Overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, the eccentric group of outsiders learns that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. This tuneful, clever and heartwarming coming-of-age tale also invites volunteers from the audience to participate in each performance, ensuring new and unexpected comedy every night. Music and lyrics by William Finn Book by Rachel Sheinkin Conceived by Rebecca Feldman and additional material by Jay Reiss Tickets at www.d2defy.com
