Limited chance to see this hilarious and touching spelling musical in London!
Spelling Bee is a delightfully quirky, touching, laugh-out-loud musical that celebrates the American tradition of competitive spelling championships.
An eclectic group of pre-teen children compete for the spelling championship of a lifetime, while also dealing with loneliness, pandemonium, and pushy parents. The students (and some plucky volunteers from our audience!) spell their way through a series of words. Each hopes never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life ending “ding” of the bell that signals a mistake. Six spellers enter but only one speller can win!
A riotous ride that combines a fast-paced and wildly funny book by Rachel Sheinkin, with a fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is a real winner!
We are delighted to announce our fantastic cast!
