The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
A Wildly Witty Musical Comedy
Book by Rachel Sheinkin, Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Six spellers enter...one speller leaves! This effortlessly funny and touching show is a fast-paced crowed pleaser sure to charm audiences. An eclectic group of mid-pubescent students vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime while candidly disclosing hilarious and heartfelt stories from their home lives. As they spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, they pray not to hear the soul-crushing "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. With a bouncy score and plenty of laughs, this feel-good show is a must-see.
