THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE


February 2 – 18, 2018

Picture a world where an eclectic group of mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. These socially awkward youngsters  navigate the treacherous path into puberty. And then, 1 by 1…they candidly disclose hilarious and touching stories from their home lives while they trepidatiously spell their way through a minefield of difficult words! The drive to win ultimately becomes secondary, however, as “Spelling Bee” finds the beauty in being a runner-up.

The effortless wit and humor of this Tony® Award-winning, Broadway Musical is a riotous ride, complete with audience participation where…six spellers enter; one speller leaves! And…the losers get a juice box!

 

“Eccentrically humanistic and idiosyncratically witty…”
