Extremely enjoyable performance. The Spellers had fun quirky personalities portraying school kids pretty much like they are. We loved Leaf and his innocence and love of the experience. Olive was our favorite, along with the most moving song she had excelent comic timing and a voice that was superior. One of he most hularious moments was her struggle with the micophone. The cast as a whole put on a great show. Not sure giving so much candy to the audience was such a good idea as the constant opening of wrappers in the second act was very distracting!
