Chicago’s First Ever Backwards Spelling Bee

Posted on April 29, 2010

On Sunday, May 9th at 7PM, Morseland and Strawdog Theatre Company present Chicago’s First Ever Backwards Spelling Bee.

Do not be afraid!  Be very afraid!

This competition is exactly what it says it is. Think about it, practice and sign up. All proceeds from this event benefit Rogers Park’s PACTT organization, a non-profit agency that serves individuals with autism and their families. A suggested donation of only $10 will get you into the Bee. Contestants are farther encouraged to gather sponsorships from friends, family and businesses (all donations are tax-deductible.) Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the top finishers and to the top sponsors.  This is a one time event that is not to be missed. Please come in to Morseland to sign up and donate or pay online via PayPal using the button on out website. Check out PACTT’s website for more information on their mission and services.

Contestants must be 21 years of age; current members of the International Backwards Spelling Bee Association are not eligible. Limited spaces are available; you have just one week left to sign up!

Too afraid?

We don’t blame you. There’s no better way to bury that fear than by attending the event and watching as the contestants attempt to remember that at the backwards spelling bee, it’s “i after e except before c.” We’ve hired not one, but two, trained professional MCs to host the event who will be accompanied by the sweet sultry sounds of composer William Kurk. Spectators will be asked for a suggested donation of just $5.

All donations and sponsorships are tax deductible.
