Metropolis School Students Present THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE

Area high school students join Metropolis School of the Performing Arts (SOPA) to perform the hilarious musical comedy The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, August 11-14, 2021, in the Metropolis Theatre.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to 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. Come see our high school students in this hilarious full-length musical! Performances will be held in the theatre - Face masks not required for fully vaccinated individuals. This show is recommended for ages 13+.

Performances of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee are August 11-14, 2021; Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at MetropolisArts.com, via phone at 847.577.5982 x239, or via email at customerservice@metropolisarts.com.
