Gather in the lobby of the Drury Lane Theatre and challenge fellow spelling enthusiasts to America’s favorite word games like Scrabble, Boggle, and Taboo! each Wednesday evening before the show. This boisterous and exciting pre-show battle of wits is highlighted by the one and only Hungry Hungry Hippos Spelling Championship – the first of its kind anywhere!
Plus, experience the latest word game from Winning Moves Games - ACROSS WORDS. This adrenaline rush combines the best of Scrabble-type action and the clue solving satisfaction of the Sunday crossword puzzle.

After dazzling the competition with your Triple Word Score skills, sit back and let the masters show you the true meaning of competition. In the new Tony Award-winning musical comedy The 25thAnnual Putnam County Spelling Bee, six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. "Spelling Bee is riotously funny and remarkably ingenious. Gold stars all around," says the New York Times.
