"When six young spellers convene in the local high school gym for the annual county spelling bee, parental pressures and pre-pubescent stress send them into overdrive," said Lyn Napel, a parent volunteer for the M-A Drama Boosters, in the announcement. "Audience participation is all part of the fun with the chance to see favorite M-A teachers and staff on the hot seat as they attempt to spell alongside the student actors."
Showtime is 7:30 p.m., plus a 2 p.m. matinee March 19. The Menlo-Atherton High Orchestra will accompany the performers. Use the Ringwood Avenue entrance, just off Middlefield Road.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students, seniors and staff.
