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.
