THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE Book by Rachel Sheinkin Music by William Finn Directed by Greg Scalera
This production is made possible by two companies pooling resources: Bullet Theatre Collaborative and The Theater Project.
Adult actors play an eclectic group of mid-pubescents vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens—and some volunteers from the audience—spell their way through a series of (possibly made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing "ding" of the bell signaling a mistake.
