The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Players' Ring
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Music and Lyrics by William Finn / Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman / Additional Material by Jay Reiss Directed by Meghan Flynn / Produced by Dive In Productions 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. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
