Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who
barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't
everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a hilarious tale of
overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent
outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's
Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit
musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of
outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand
out and fit in at the same time.
