This charming Tony Award-winning one-act musical celebrates the triumph of doing the best you can. Six nerdy teenagers from Putnam Valley Middle School, in the midst of adolescent angst, discover themselves while struggling to win the school’s spelling bee, run by three equally-quirky grownups.
The Broadway production of this show opened in April 2005 at New York’s Circle in the Square Theater, where it is still playing. An unusual aspect of the show is that four real audience members are invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the six young characters.
