Overview

An underdog we all can root for takes the stage in “Akeelah and the Bee” at the Racine Theatre Guild Friday, March 27 - Sunday, April 5.

Akeelah lives and breathes words and has a gift for spelling. This passion is overshadowed by the daily realities of her life in a tough Chicago neighborhood. Despite her mother’s objections, she studies and prepares for the National Spelling Bee with a determined spirit. Akeelah’s spunk and tenacity teach us all a little something about triumphing over any obstacle.
