Can you spell FUNTASTIC? This Tony Award winning musical comedy follows six hilarious and quirky prepubescent bookworms and their adult counterparts as they journey through the torments of teen life while spelling strabismus, capybara, and phylactery. The audience even gets into the act in a show that really puts the “comedy” into “musical comedy.”

Recommended for ages 13+ due to adult themes and language.
