25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

2012 - 2013 Season: September 20 - September 30

Six young people dream of glory, acceptance, love and parental approval - all treasures that come along with the winner's trip to Washington, D. C. and the national spelling bee.  The quirky, hilarious, and lovable spellers competing in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee invite you on their angst and joy filled journey of adolescence as they learn about winning, losing, and themselves.  Guest Artist and House Theatre of Chicago company member Tommy Rapley choreographs this musical by Rachel Sheinkin and William Finn.
