Six awkward spelling competitors vie for the spelling competition of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories of their personal lives, these tweens discover that winning (and losing) isn't everything. Guided by a compassionate former spelling champion, a sarcastic rules-coordinator, and an ex-convict comfort-counselor, the story involves laugh-out-loud encounters with blatantly honest life-lessons that everyone can relate to.
This show is rated PG-13 due to mild cursing and adult-themed humor from the perspective of adolescents.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
