What's On

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Buy Tickets

21 March to 18 April

Put six young people in the throes of puberty along with six adults, who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, all vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime, and you have the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the most improbable of heroes.

Throw in a quirky, yet charming, cast of outsiders for whom the spelling bee is the one place they can stand out and fit in at the same time. And you never know, you might be a contestant yourself!

By William Finn, Rachel Sheinkin, Jay Reiss
