NOVEMBER 2 - 17, 2018

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee                                            

Next Stage – TM Premiere

Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheiken with additional material by Jay Reiss

Fast-paced and Funny. Mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime and learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything. Hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake, they candidly disclose hilarious and touching stories from their home lives. A truly fresh and vibrant score makes this musical bee unforgettable.
