How do you spell B-R-O-A-D-W-A-Y- H-I-T? for that is precisely what KS Productions (The Professional Production Company of the KentainerS) will be bringing to Trinity this August .
The show ran for over two years on Broadway and gained two Tony awards in the process. Recently it played a very successful season in London at the Donmar Warehouse – this is the first professional production in England since that run.
This riotous musical comedy is guaranteed to have you cachinnating (use it in a sentence, request a definition?). Six kids face off in the battle of their lives. The competition is intense. The words are outrageous.
Three adults adjudicate the proceedings: a nostalgic former spelling bee winner, a mildly insane Vice Principal and The Official Comfort Counsellor completing his community service to the State of New York. Both tender and sardonic, this hilarious musical of overachievers’ angst brings you inside the spelling championship to end them all where the participants learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser!
“Can you spell irresistable? Drat! I mean, i-r-r-e-s-i-s-t-i-b-l-e? …precisely the word for this entirely adorable new musical.” —The New York Times
“It’s spelled W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L” Wall Street Journal
The cast is made up of local professionals and those who are appearing at Trinity for the first time – many of whom have West End credits.
Suggested age 10+ Production contains some adult humour.
