Get out your dictionaries! Six quirky adolescents compete in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, run by three equally quirky grownups, occasionally interrupted by two overbearing fathers, and a very special visit from Jesus Christ himself. Interspersing recitations of some simple words and some not so simple words, Spelling Bee exposes hidden fears, frustrations, and the awkward typicalities of the pubescent stage. So brush up on your spelling (audience members are asked to participate onstage in the bee itself!) and prepare yourself for some spelling bee E-N-T-E-R-T-A-I-N-M-E-N-T!


The cast boasts the talents of Rachel Cox, Catharine Jacobs, Emma Langfitt, Lukas McGee, Nathan Mullen, Patrick Powell, Jonah Sanders, Joe Tyler, Tim Weigand, Markel Williams, Emily Wittman, and Jeremy Wolfberg. Direction is by Liz Clarke, musical direction by Kevin Thomas, and choreography by Iz Clemens.
