Musical Theater: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Poster for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Presented by the UW Musical Theater Program—a partnership of the School of Drama, School of Music, and Dance Program.

This hilarious & warmhearted musical comedy chronicles the experiences of six adolescent outsiders vying 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.
