A HILARIOUSLY HIP MUSICAL COMEDY COMPLETE WITH AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has been hailed as a work of comedic genius. Adult actors play an eclectic group of six 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 that signals a mistake.
