Five middle schoolers take on overzealous parents, crazy coaches, and nostalgic relatives as they prepare for the annual spelling bee in this insightful comedy for young actors. With contestants that range from an unflappable cheerleader who cheers all her words to the anxiety-prone daughter of a movie star, spelling the words correctly may be the least of these kids' worries. This play wonderfully illustrates the pressure that kids feel to compete, and the family support that makes it all bearable.
All cast are aged 10-16 and include Alex Lang, Ania Nicholson, Astrid Teague, Byron Jeffrey, Charlize Horbelt, Evie Harris, Georgie Eyres, Gracie Manifold, Harriet Berry, Isabelle Braun, James Walters, Kiara Ting, Lauren Davidson, Millie Rook, Natalie Lockyer & Siena Turner.
All tickets $20
Saturday 5th October at 5pm & 8pm
