Theatre Next Door (TND) will present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at The Bickford Theatre of Morris Museum in Morristown, NJ.

While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the eclectic characters spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words on a riotous ride complete with audience participation, all the while learning that winning isn’t everything.

“We’re thrilled to be back at The Bickford Theatre at Morris Museum for another exhilarating summer production. Spelling Bee is unlike any musical because it has a lot of improvisation and audience participation, making each
performance a truly fun and unique experience,” says Angelo DeFazio, Bee director and co-founder of Theatre Next Door.

Cast members include Xavier Cruz (Florham Park), Leandra Del Pozo (Bridgewater), Rachel Favetta (West Orange), Thomas Fetner (South Orange), Julie Funesti (Florham Park), Anna Hanson (Glen Ridge), Ryan Healy (Livingston), Tommy Hilden (Florham Park), Nicole Lippey (West Orange), Mikey Miller (Florham Park), Chase Moriarty (Glen Ridge), Meghan Muth (Florham Park), Briana and Carlyn Serpone (Roseland), Brooke Shanley (Florham Park), and April Sigler (Stanhope).

Production team includes director and TND co-founder Angelo De Fazio, musical director Courtney Serpone, choreographer and TND co-founder Melissa Mooney, producer Jenna Rocca, stage manager Anthony Foti, and costume designer Christina Alamo.
