Akeelah lives and breathes words and has a gift for spelling. This passion is overshadowed by the daily realities of her life in a tough Chicago neighborhood. Despite her mother’s objections, she studies and prepares for the National Spelling Bee with a determined spirit. As the underdog, Akeelah’s spunk and tenacity teach us all a little something about triumphing over any obstacle. With less than two weeks until its opening before the COVID-19 shutdown, the show returns to finally bring Akeelah to life on the Racine Theatre Guild’s stage.
Based on the screenplay by Doug Atchison
Adapted for the stage by Cheryl L. West
Produced by special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences
