The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has delighted audiences since it’s premiere in 2005.   Six tweens attend the greatest Spelling Bee for the chance to attain regional glory!  In between spelling some of the most difficult words in the dictionary, they share some of the most touching and funny stories about their home lives and families.  But you’d better brush up on your spelling because you might be invited up to participate with the cast! This musical will have you laughing, spelling, and singing all the way home.
