Akeelah and the Bee

  • 700 Monroe Street
  • Huntsville, AL 35801

11 year-old Akeelah spells words because her daddy taught her to, not because she's trying to get a reputation as "the Brainiac". After she wins her school’s bee, she buckles down and studies hard for Nationals against all kinds of odds: bullying friends, gun violence outside her window, and the ongoing mourning for her father. Audience members will cheer Akeelah’s triumphant journey about the transformative (t-r-a-n-s-f-o-r-m-a-t-i-v-e) power of education, adult mentors, and friendship. Recommended for ages 9 and up.
