The competition is intense. The words are hilarious. Let the spelling begin! 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, overseen by grownups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves. 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. Before every performance four audience volunteers are recruited to participate on-stage as guest spellers. Come and try out your spelling!
