The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
June 18 – 30
In this wildly funny, fast-paced musical, an eclectic group of mid-pubescents vies for the spelling championship of a lifetime while candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, this bee is a delightful den of comedic genius. Rated PG-13
