SYNOPSIS: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, 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.

 PERFORMANCE DATES: DRIER STAGE (Outside) June 25, 26, 27, 2020 at 8 PM

 Appointments are preferred! Sign up for a time slot in the Arts and Humanities Division Office, HVPA 200. however, we will attempt to fit in anyone who comes within the audition hours.

 FOR THE AUDITION, please bring sheet music; prepare 1 contemporary musical theatre piece, 16-18 bars. Your song choices should highlight your ability to create a character, and act through the song as well as execute the musicality presented in the song. Please bring music in the proper key, an accompanist will be provided. Accapella singing is NOT ALLOWED. It is perfectly acceptable to sing from Spelling Bee, but we still recommend bringing your own music. The cut you have may differ (keys, tempos etc) from our piano/vocal score.
