The 25th Annual Putnam County
Spelling Bee

Music and lyrics by William Finn
Book by Rachel Sheinkin,
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Additional material by Jay Reiss

"Life is pandemonium."

When a group of young spellers compete for top prize at the annual spelling bee, the tension mounts as the contestants cope with fanatical parents, dastardly sabotage attempts, teenage crushes and the horrors of puberty! The New York Times called this musical “irresistible and entirely lovable and riotously funny.” You’ll be “cachinnating” all the way down to your “sesamoids.” Each performance features special guest spellers, so the madness is different every time.
