The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Music & Lyrics by William Finn; Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Directed by Patrick Fernan, musical director: Michael Brunner; choreography by Katrina Williams-Brunner
Six young people in the the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
