A musical comedy where six awkward spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything.

About this Event

Denison University’s Singer’s Theatre Workshop presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a musical comedy that centers on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School.

Free and open to the public, but tickets are required and available March 30.

This performance is in Sharon Martin Hall in the Eisner Center

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. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.

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 spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
