THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
July 22 - August 8$30.00
JULY 22-AUGUST 7
Friday& Saturday @ 7:30 p.m.
Sunday @ 3:00 p.m.
DIRECTED BY HEATHER DENTON
In this Tony award-winning musical, six awkward spelling champions vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the champions 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. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, six spellers enter; one speller wins!
