Many thanks to all those students from the three schools who auditioned for next years school production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee". Please be aware that this is a significantly smaller show than in previous years.  If you have been unsuccessful in obtaining a cast role we will be looking for people to help out with all aspects of backstage in the next few months.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by William Finn, a book by Rachel Sheinkin, conceived by Rebecca Feldman with additional material by Jay Reiss. The show centres on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups. Directors Note “The greatest pitfall of adults or teens playing child characters is the urge to exaggerate childish mannerisms and speech. As with any portrayal it is important to find the human who lives at the center of your character to ensure the authenticity of the performance.”
