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.
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 tweens spell their way through a series of songs and 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.
Starring Shana Dagny, Heidi Hansfield, Ben Isabel, Jillian Mayer, Shane Roberie, Dustin Rothbart, Sarah Sapperstein, Timothy Walsh, and Mark Yacullo.
Directed by Wayne Mell
with music direction by Ken Preuss and choreography by Marianne Brow
