THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Grand Falls-Windsor, Arts & Culture Centre
March 2 & 3
An eclectic group of sixth-graders arrives at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive brings only her best friend (the dictionary); hyperallergic speller William Barfee uses his “magic foot” for greatness; former champion Chip is struggling with his puberty; easily distracted Leaf is unconvinced that he’s smart enough; overachiever Marcy is disappointed by her consistent success; and politically aware Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her dads. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.  Click here for more info and tickets
