Bay Area Musicals! to Present 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEEBay Area Musicals! to Present 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
by BWW News Desk - Oct 18, 2016

Bay Area Musicals!, the newest non-profit theatrical organization to join the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area arts community, opens its second season with the Tony Award-winning musical comedy, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This thrilling and hilarious musical centers around an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words, hoping to never 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. Winner of the Tony and 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. Featuring a fast-paced wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.   (more...)
