The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
June 15, 16, 22, & 23, 2018 at the KayHi Auditorium

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Along with 4 audience members who also compete, 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 (plus four!) spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box?
