|25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Musical

Oct 12 & 19: $20
All Other Dates: $30
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a long running single act musical comedy with music and lyrics by William Finn, a book by Rachel Sheinkin. "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! At least the losers get a juice box."
