25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music and Lyrics by William Finn Book by Rachel Sheinkin Conceived by Rebecca Feldman

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents 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!

ABOUT THE SHOW

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences with its effortless wit and humor for 15 years. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents (played by adults) vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the kids 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! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Starring: Kim Anderson, Megan Butterfield, Jayden Choquette, Maisy French, Jillian Holland, Brendan O'Leary, Sabrina Sydnor, Andy Whitaker, and Sarah Wright

Choreographer: Kyla Paul

Music Director: Nate Venet

Artistic Director: Erin Evarts
