The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Presented by Weathervane Playhouse at Weathervane Playhouse, Akron OH

Dec 03 - 19 2015
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music and lyrics by William Finn Book by Rachel Sheinkin. Conceived by Rebecca Feldman. Additional Material by Jay Reiss. Directed by Melanie Y.C. Pepe. Musical Director John Ebne

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! This hilarious, charming musical won the Tony Award and the Drama Desk
