The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee offers a satirical look at six wacky kids (played by adults), along with some audience volunteers, competing in their local county spelling bee. There are three adults along to oversee the competition, and the contestants learn much about life and themselves as they use their individual and eccentric techniques in spelling the difficult words they're given.
The spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything in this fast paced crowd pleaser. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, this musical is a delightful den of comedic genius. The 2005 Broadway production was nominated for 6 Tony Awards!
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.
