Winner of the Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for Best Book, THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE follows six eclectic middle schoolers as they vie for the spelling bee trophy. Join the spellers as they share their stories, while hoping to avoid the soul-crushing “ding” that signals a misspelled word. Complete with audience participation, THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a fastpaced, witty comedy that you won’t want to miss!
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is conceived by Rebecca Feldman, with additional material by Jay Reiss. Music and Lyrics are by William Finn and the book is by Rachel Sheinkin. THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is produced through special arrangements with Musical Theatre International.
