The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee


  • The Snug Theatre 160 South Water Street Marine City, MI, 48039 United States (map)

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescent’s vie for the spelling 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, 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. 

  • Music and Lyrics by William Finn
  • Book by Rachel Sheinkin
