A Tony Award and Drama Desk Winning Musical Comedy about six awkward spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn’t everything.
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. “A riotous ride, complete with audience participation,The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.” It’s a fast-paced crowd-pleaser and an instant theatre patron favourite!
