An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, 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.
A truly funny, feel good musical for everyone who ever experienced school, competitions ... life! The Bee features a fabulous cast of Brisbane performers and, if you're up for it, you can put your hand up to participate. You might even get a juice box.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee plays 11 - 18 February at the Star Theatre, Manly, Qld. Tickets are released 12 January. Sign up today to receive our emails and get priority access to all tickets at www.savoyards.com.au
