The 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE - MARCH 8th -11th & 15th - 18th, 2018 Conceived by Rebecca Feldman with music and lyrics by William Finn, book by Rachel Sheinkin and additional materials by Jay Reiss, The 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE tells the story of an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents who 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. While six spellers enter, with only one leaving as winner - all find a sense of belonging and learn there is more to life than winning trophies. (And hey - at least the losers get a juice box). With as much hilarity as it has heart, The 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is recommended for ages 13+ as it contains adult humor and some coarse (but perfectly spelled) language.
