An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching secrets from their home lives, the tweens (played by adults) spell their way through a series of words, (some made up) hoping never to 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. Hilarious fun, complete with audience participation 

Please join us for the opening night reception
October 17 starting at 7 PM.
