A hilarious musical about overachievers, chronicling the experience of six young adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. In the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, they learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. Directed by Joe Langworth.
