The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Fountain Hills TheaterFeb. 15 – Mar. 3, 2019
Fri. & Sat. at 7:00pm & Sun. at 2pm

Directed by  Ross Collins

In the Youth Theater

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. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor.
