What’s all the buzz about this hilarious, touching, and entirely charming musical comedy?

“Bee” in the audience this spring to find out!

Director: Aimee Diehl

Music Director: Jen Allred
Co-Producers: Kristen Ginsburg and Christopher Ross
Stage Manager: Dora Greven

Winner of two 2005 Tony Awards, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee puts audiences front and center at one of the quirkiest competitive events of the school year! Six awkward middle-school spellers try to keep their cool and win the bee while three well-intentioned adults run the show. Along the way, catchy songs and clever dialogue reveal the tweens’ personal stories and the unexpected, often hilarious challenges that stand between them and the trophy.

This fast-paced, funny musical even brings the action right to the audience, with four volunteer spellers taking the stage at each performance! Who will win? Come find out!

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is presented by special arrangement with Music Theater International, Inc., NY, NY. All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
