MUSIC THEATRE OF CONNECTICUT SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS presents
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Music and Lyrics by WILLIAM FINN
Book by RACHEL SHIENKIN
Conceived by REBECCA FELDMAN
Additional Material by JAY REISS
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
"The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
