Theatre Preview: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

In the musical comedy "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. With its enormously appealing cast of lovable misfits, nerds and neurotics (no jocks), "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee hilariously captures the angst, exhilaration, and heartache that makes growing up so painful and so wonderful."

Performed by the American High School Performing Arts, "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" is directed by Troy River. Richard Wong musically directs the production of this Tony Award-winning Broadway musical about a small-town spelling bee.
