The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
by Mary Moody Northen Theatre

Feb. 24 - Mar. 06, 2022

(via MMNT)Follow 6 eclectic mid-pubescent bee contestants as they vie for the coveted county championship and struggle to avoid the soul-crushing ‘ding’ of the bell that will send them home. This Tony-Award-winning musical is a hilarious and charming tale with a vibrant score. Winning isn’t everything, and losing does not necessarily make you a loser. Based on the book by Rachel Sheinkin, with music and lyrics by William Finn.
