It’s do or die as six deliciously geeky, philologically-industrious twelve-year-olds battle it out for glory in the spelling championship of a lifetime.

This unlikeliest of hit musicals is chock-full with overachievers’ angst, bizarre and multi-syllabic words, romance, cliff hanging suspense and spelling mums.
