A group of eclectic pre-teens (played by just as eclectic adults) learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything as they spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing 'ding' of the bell. At least the losers get a juice box. Featuring a Tony Award-winning, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a fresh and vibrant score by William Finn (Falsettos), this bee is one unforgettable experience. Each performance uses three audience participants; it could be you who wins the bee!
