Saturday June 8, 2019
8:00 PM

An eclectic group of six students competes in the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words in hopes of winning the ultimate prize – attending the National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC. Six spellers enter, intent on never hearing the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Only one speller will leave with the prize. But at least the losers get a juice box! This is a hilarious ride, complete with audience participation. Please note: ONLY the matinee performances are family friendly.

1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor - 609-570-3333 - www.kelseytheatre.net $20.

Through June 16.
