A hilarious tale of six geeky adolescent overachievers vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime, this Tony Award winning musical is both tender and quirky. Directed by longtime retired Theatre VCU faculty member and a favorite of Richmond audiences, Gary C. Hopper, Spelling Bee features a wide range of misfits varying from a liberal young girl who has gay dads, a slightly obnoxious speller who uses his “Magic Foot” to spell out the words, and a girl whose parents never seem to notice her. At every performance 4 audience members will be invited on stage to participate in the Bee—you, perhaps? This fast-paced adorable show is smart, clever, fun, and a most enjoyable way to wrap up our season!
