Photo Flash: Iconotheatrix' Production of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE Brings Fun and Laughs to the StagePhoto Flash: Iconotheatrix' Production of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE Brings Fun and Laughs to the Stage
by BWW News Desk - Mar 28, 2017

Iconotheatrix presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee April 6-15, 2017 at The MATCH (Midtown Arts and Theatre Center Houston). An eclectic group of mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime.

Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced, crowd-pleasing, delightful den of comedic genius.  (more...)
