ABOUT:

11-year-old Akeelah spells words because her daddy taught her to, not because she’s trying to get a reputation as “the Brainiac”. After she wins her school’s bee, she buckles down and studies hard for Nationals against all kinds of odds: bullying friends, gun violence outside her window, and the ongoing mourning for her father. Audience members will cheer Akeelah’s triumphant journey about the transformative (t-r-a-n-s-f-o-r-m-a-t-i-v-e) power of education, adult mentors, and friendship.
Recommended for ages 9 and up.

Directed by: Jacinda Swinehart and Kailey Burkhardt

Based on the screenplay by Doug Atchison
Adapted for the stage by Cheryl L. West
Produced by special arrangement by Plays for Young Audiences
