CM Performing Arts Center Presents
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Oakdale, N.Y. – Get out your dictionaries! Six kids face off in the battle of their lives. The competition is intense. The words are outrageous. Let the spelling (and the singing) begin!
This Tony Award-winning musical tells the hilarious, yet heartwarming, story of a group of six anxiety-ridden, overachieving adolescents in the throes of puberty vying for the spelling bee championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul crushing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. The children are overseen by a gathering of adults who barely managed to escape childhood themselves. During the Bee, the colorful contestants learn that winning isn’t everything, and losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. A riotous ride complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comic genius.
