The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
SEPTEMBER 19 – OCTOBER 15, 2017
Music and Lyrics by William Finn • Book by Rachel Sheinkin • Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Dust off your dictionary as six awkward adolescents face off in the battle of their lives. Let the spelling (and the singing) begin! The competition is intense. The words are outrageous. The songs are hilarious. These six quirky youngsters tell tales from their home lives while spelling their hearts out hoping to never hear the crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a mistake. Both tender and sarcastic, this joyful Tony Award-winning musical of overachievers’ angst brings you inside a spelling championship you’ll never forget.
“CAN YOU SPELL I-R-R-E-S-I-S-T-I-B-L-E? SPELLING BEE IS RIOTOUSLY FUNNY AND ENTIRELY ADORABLE.” –THE NEW YORK TIMES
Directed by Amy Kaissar
