The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Friday, May 11, 2018 - Saturday, May 19, 2018
A riotous musical ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. An eclectic group of spelling misfits vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves!
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
