"The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" is a musical comedy about a fictional spelling bee set in Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups. The winner of two Tony Awards, this delightful musical has charmed audiences with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a widly funny and touching book a truly fresh and vibrant score, this bee is an unforgettable experience. The best part is that all of the tweens are played by adults. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
