The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music & lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman

May 4 – September 24, 2018

In this charming musical, quirky middle-schoolers battle for the ultimate title: spelling champ of Putnam County! With each new word, the earnest combatants reveal their passions, fears and dreams through hilarious and touching tunes. (And it’s not just about the spelling: the adult cast is ultra geek-chic in their middle school costumes!)

Alan Bailey, director of such audience favorites as Souvenir and Sylvia, returns for this Tony Award-winning musical about friendship, sacrifice and valuable lessons in fair play.
