"25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee".

October 25, 2012
7:30 PM — 9:00 PM
Victoria Molle
Music and Lyrics by William Finn Book by Rachel Sheinkin Conceived by Rebecca Feldman Additional materials by Jay Reiss. Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. This is free and open to the public.
