The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee by Rachel Sheinkin and William Finn

Directed by Noah Racey

An eclectic group of six pubescents vies for a spelling championship. 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 error. Six spellers enter and learn that winning (and losing) is not everything. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

In this light-hearted musical, conceived by Rebecca Feldman, we get to laugh at our foibles as this jamboree of idiosyncratic nerds builds their own quirky community. And our audiences are invited to spell out their participation.
