In this charming musical, quirky sixth-graders battle for the ultimate title: spelling champ of Putnam Valley Middle School! With each new word, the earnest combatants reveal their passions, fears and dreams through hilarious and touching tunes. (And it’s not just about the spelling: the adult cast is ultra geek-chic in their middle school costumes!) Alan Bailey, director of such audience favorites as Souvenir and Sylvia, returns for this Tony Award-winning musical about friendship, sacrifice and valuable lessons in fair play.
