The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
by Rachel Sheinkin
Score by William Finn
An eclectic group of mid-pubescents—joined by willing audience members—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.
March 11–April 3, 2022
Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
The performance runs approximately 95 minutes with no intermission.
