Presented by San Diego Junior Theatre
Akeelah and the Bee tells the story of a spunky 11-year-old girl whose razor-sharp mind just might take her all the way from the Chicago projects to the finals of the National Spelling Bee. An inspiring story that celebrates diversity, friendship and the triumph of the human spirit.
Akeelah has a crazy passion for words: the more abstruse and labyrinthine, the better. But this gift is almost overwhelmed by the challenge of her daily life in a tough, Chicago neighborhood. Akeelah’s aptitude earns her a spot in the National Spelling Bee, which inspires the people in her neighborhood with her courage and tenacity.
