In this hilarious and heartwarming, Tony-winning musical, six awkward teenagers vie for the championship of a lifetime. Along the way these six Â¿ and four volunteers from the audience (can you spell improvisation?) Â¿ find a sense of belonging and learn there is more to life than winning trophies. Recommended for ages 13+. Contains adult humor and some coarse (but perfectly spelled) language. Ticketing: wku.showare.com
