The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Artzmartz Young Peoples Theatre

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humour. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.An eclectic group of six mid-pubescent’s vying 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. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
