The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)

Directed & Choreographed by Jeff Casey
Musical Direction by Elizabeth Tuazon

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.
