Spelling Bee

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music & Lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman

Additional Material by Jay Reiss

July 11 - August 18, 2013

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a Tony Award-winning musical that is the uproarious tale of six over-achieving and quirky adolescents vying for a spelling championship, overseen by equally colorful adults. Tuneful, clever and heartwarming, it imparts life lessons such as "winning isn't everything" and "losing doesn't make you a loser." To add to the fun, every performance brings audience members on stage to try their hand at spelling.

"It's spelled W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L!" – The Wall Street Journal
