Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The Tony Award winning show also gives the audience a chance to participate as spellers in the bee. With music and lyrics by William Finn, and book by Rachel Sheinkin.  Directed by Kathryn Evans.

Directions to the University Theatre (TH)

From the north, take Synergy Parkway to Floyd Road, turning south to Lookout Drive. From the south, take Campbell Road to Floyd, turning north to Lookout Drive. Prepare to stop at the four-way stop sign at the intersection of Floyd Road and Lookout Drive. Next, turn to head west on Lookout to drive onto the University campus. Prepare to make a right at the driveway. That is the entrance to Parking Lots A and B. After turning into the driveway, Parking Lot B will come first and Lot A is just beyond a dividing sidewalk. Find a spot and park. Use the safe walking path and head west toward campus. A large campus map (right) and Green Bridge appear at the end of path. Cross the Green Bridge, enter Green Hall (GR) and follow the signs to the University Theatre.
