Praised for its unique balance of charm and comedy, this Tony Award winning musical is a riotous ride, complete with audience participation. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee follows an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents as they 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 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 but only one speller leaves with the title of C-H-A-M-P-I-O-N!  (Please note: This production is estimated to be rated PG-13 and is not recommended for children.)
