Based upon C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E, an original play by The Farm.

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, this hilarious and jubilant musical comedy features a group of six awkward young students competing at the annual spelling bee. In between the rounds of the contest, the students delve into an eclectic and touching mix of stories from their lives at home, revealing personal details about themselves that together show the audience that perhaps winning is not, after all, the most important thing.
