The Durango Adult Education Center is throwing its annual Spellebration spelling-bee event during Snowdown! Spelling teams will showcase their Shakespearean spelling skills while wearing their best Renaissance-era wardrobe. The local theatrical troupe, Merely Players, will be acting out various parts of Shakespeare's plays which contain each spelling word! Come in costume, enjoy the cocktails, and support the Adult Education Center as you watch (or participate!) in this not-so-serious Shakespearean showdown of Snowdown!
