"heaps of hilarity"

 

-Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times

Video by: Erin Gould

"Center REP has built what amounts to a strong company of comedic actors that rivals any other performing in the Bay Area, a real delight to watch."

"Collister's deft direction, is a delight.. and his all-star comic cast have gone beyond the laughs in this over-achieving soap opera to explore the characters more deeply, discovering new sides to the spelling-crazed students and adding a sometimes-poignant and touching warmth."

-Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times

Some comical use of adult language.

 

A hilarious tale of over-achievers' angst, Spelling Bee chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. A Tony Award-winning musical about trying to stand out and fit in at the same time, this riotous musical comedy is guaranteed to have you cachinnating (use it in a sentence, request a definition?). Dust off your dictionary and prepare yourself for the laughter and quirky charms of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!

"Can you spell irresistible? That's precisely the word for this entirely adorable musical!"
