The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
conceived by Rebecca Feldman, Additional Material by Jay Reiss, Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Directed by Jeffery Lesniak
Choreographed by Rikki Howie Lacewell
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of words hoping to never her the soul-crushing, pout-inducing life-unaffirming 'ding' of the bell that signifies a mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves!

Scottie Templeton's a charming, irresponsible fellow. A sometime Broadway press agent and former scriptwriter, he's everyone's friend, nobody's hero and a great womanizer who's managed to live over fifty years without taking anything seriously including love, marriage, and fatherhood. Life has been one continuous gag. But a fifty-one, he finds the script's been rewritten as a tragedy; he is fatally ill. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect, comes to visit. Scottie's one concern is to make friends with his son, for everyone else adores Scottie including his ex-wife, his friend and boss, and his doctor. Tribute is a warm, funny, touching play with wonderful characters.
