Do you have what it takes to win … or, even tougher, to fit in?  Directed by Northwestern University alumnus Adam Goldstein, this hilarious and touching Tony Award-winning musical takes audiences right into the pressure cooker of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.  Under the bee's bright lights, six young overachievers must use their dictionary-thick knowledge of obscure words and the unexpected guidance of lovable bee officials to battle the oppression of role models, adults, other competitors and even their own selves to learn that winning isn’t everything and that champions come in all shapes and sizes.
