BWW TV: Scenes from Finger Lakes' SPELLING BEE at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse
The Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival presents SPELLING BEE at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, now playing through September 29. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.
This two-time Tony Award Winning musical is a hilarious and charming musical, taking you into the lives of six young contestants participating in one the most uproarious spelling bees ever. To add to the humor, volunteers are selected from the audience for each performance. Can you spell ‘fun’? Then you should come and see The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
General Admission Tickets are $37-$43. Discounts are available for Seniors (62+) Students (w/ID) and Youth (under 18). Group rates are available for parties of 15 or more.
