The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Join the Upper School Theatre Department for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee March 5-7 at 7 p.m. in the Blanchard Performing Arts Center.

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.

Content warning: Contains profanity and allusions to sexuality and violence. Rating: PG-13.

March 5-7 at 7 p.m.
