Event Description:

“Can I have a definition please?” The swirl of vocabulary words. The thumping of the heart. The glare of the audience. And at stake…the chance of a lifetime. A group of adolescent kids vie for the title of spelling bee Champion in a hilarious, heart-warming snapshot of the terrors and pleasures of growing up. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves. At least the losers get a juice box.
