Description: 
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is an energetic and endearing musical comedy. Music and lyrics by William Finn and book by Rachel Sheinkin.  The show is about a regional middle school spelling bee held at the Putnam Valley Middle School. Six always unique and often insightful students compete in the Bee which is officiated by three always unique and often hysterical adults, including a "comfort counselor" completing his community service hours. The show promises to delight audiences with laugh out loud moments, catchy music and characters everyone can relate to.
