The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music and Lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Additional Material by Jay Reiss
Directed by Jeffery Lesniak
Choreographed by Rikki Howie Lacewell
Produced by Jenna Jones Paradis

Winner of both Tony and Drama Desk awards, this musical features an eclectic ensemble of tween characters who vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and heartfelt angst, these adolescents spell their way through a series of esoteric words in a quest to avoid the soul-crushing, pout-inducing "ding" of the bell which signals a mistake and necessitates a quick exit from the competition. With it's fast-paced and wildly funny, yet poignant, script and a truly fresh score, this bee is a riotous ride complete with audience participation.

With: Jim Adams, John Carter, Shane Conrad, Todd Hines, Christa Kronser, Marie Nearing, Pamela Northrup, Rachel Pino-Elliott, and Joey Rolandelli
