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.

Show dates: Feb 22, 23, 24, 29, Mar 1, 2,


**This show is rated PG-13**

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favorite. Please Note: This musical is rated PG-13 and is a satire of stereotypes. There is a song about puberty and other young adult theme jokes throughout.
