The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music and Lyrics by William Finn

Book by Rachel Sheinkin

Directed by Stephanie Lynge

May 31 to July 21; Previews: May 29-30

This fast-paced, phonetic musical comedy will undoubtedly bring you to your feet! Join an eclectic group of six young people who compete in 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 “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Eight spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Complete with audience participation and plenty of effortless improv, THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE guarantees a one-of-a-kind, musical theater performance that spells F-U-N!

“Irresistible, riotously funny and remarkably ingenious …” NEW YORK TIMES

“Utterly, hilarious, surprisingly warm, almost criminally entertaining.” – Center Stage
