This Tony Award-winning comedic musical, ​​The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, centers on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School (PG-13).

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 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. Audience participation and the possibility of some notable familiar faces make every performance a uniquely entertaining experience!
