I thoroughly enjoyed this production. Several of the young cast members have quite a future in theatre ahead of them. I was very impressed with the whole show. Keep up the good work.

This was a great production. The quality of the acting was top-notch, and I was blown away by the strength of the actors' voices. I will definitely come back to productins at this theatre. I also loved the raffle!

The performance was flawless. All the cast was excellent, especially the "vice-principal", the "boy scout", and the "toe speller". These actors really put their heart and soul into this show. I would highly recommend attending this show.

This hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show’s Tony Award-winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes — a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

Directed by Shaun T. Evans, this production features a mix of teens and adult professionals with live music by Danny King and his ensemble.
