‘Akeelah and the Bee’ opens Feb. 7 at Burnsville High School

Burnsville High School Theatre Guild will perform “Akeelah and the Bee” Feb 7-9 at the Mraz Center for the Performing Arts, located at 600 E. Highway 13.
 
Akeelah has a crazy passion for words: the more abstruse and labyrinthine, the better. But this gift is almost overwhelmed by the challenge of her daily life in a tough Chicago neighborhood. Akeelah’s aptitude earns her a spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., and inspires the people in her neighborhood with her courage and tenacity.
