There’s still time to get tickets to the Stars on Stage Spelling Bee. But the event is only one week away, so hurry!
The Stars on Stage Spelling Bee combines a fast-paced improv comedy show and a spelling bee with a twist: Cheating is encouraged!

The cast of spellers includes:
• Andy Brown, DU law students

• Happy Haynes, DPS Board of Education
• Allison Krebs, Director of Knowledge Exchange, CoBank
• Jonny 5, Emcee - The Flobots

• Andrew Romanoff, former State Speaker of the House
• Jane Shirley, Principal - William Smith High School and co-founder, Rattlebrain Theater
This is a unique and fun event to benefit Summer Scholars, which provides comprehensive summer and after-school learning programs to low-income, academically struggling young learners in Denver. Summer Scholars helps at-risk children build literacy and pro-social skills – the foundation for ongoing success in school and in life.
