The cast of Akeelah and the Bee decided to get some real life inspiration and head to the Greater Grand Rapids Spelling Bee. They were able to watch some of our community’s best showcase their impressive spelling skills. Just like Akeelah, the winner of this bee goes on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C.!

A special thank you to MaryNell Baldwin, Michael Long, and the Kent ISD for their Spelling Bee consultation and inviting our cast to attend the bee at the Gerald R. Ford Museum!



Akeelah and the Bee opens next week Friday! Enjoy a night out with the whole family. For more information or to buy tickets visit our website.
