The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

This exceptionally funny, fast-paced musical, which won the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, provides audiences with embarrassing gaffes, hilarious mishaps, and escalating laughs. In The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee a half-dozen tweens compete for the ultimate title of “Putnam County Spelling Bee Champion.” As each competitor journeys towards victory or defeat, they openly share their life experiences, hopes, dreams, ambitions, and insecurities.

With a brilliantly crafted book by Rachel Sheinkin and an engaging and dynamic score by William Finn, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is the perfect show for audiences of all ages. By the way, audience members have a shot at the title too! The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is directed by Fran Page with choreography by Lisa Travis and music directed by Cassandra Cutting.
