The “Spelling Bee’’ has been charming audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor since 2005, when it earned good reviews and box-office success which resulted in six Tony Award nominations, winning two.

This musical comedy has been produced in various locations across the United States and other countries.

It centers on an eclectic group of six “children’’ who vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the kids spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.

Six spellers enter -- one speller leaves after each “ding.’’

The theater is located at 109 W. Hubbard St. in downtown Lindale. For more information email or call (903) 638-0402.
