At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee we meet an eclectic and eccentric group of prepubescent spellers who have their eyes firmly set on victory.

From absent parents to overbearing parents, rare mucous membrane disorders to poorly timed erections; as the rounds go by we begin to understand each speller’s quirks, obstacles and ambitions, often through William Finn’s tuneful score.

With guest spellers at each performance to keep our regular spellers on their toes, Spelling Bee guarantees to be a hilarious musical-comedy packed with warmth and wit.

Music and Lyrics by: William Finn
Book by: Rachel Sheinkin
