The Tony Award-winning The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny, and touching book, and a truly fresh and vibrant score, this bee is one unforgettable experience. In this musical comedy, an eclectic group of middle-school spellers compete at their annual spelling bee. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Through charming, funny, and poignant songs, we get to know each speller’s unique story and discover that winning isn’t everything.
