Brush off your dictionary and join us for a G-L-E-E-f-u-l Tony-Award winning musical romp. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is the sidesplitting tale of pubescent angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent overachievers each vying for the spelling championship of their lifetime. A quirky cast of misfits (overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves) learn that winning isn't everything and losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. It’s H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!
