SHINING STUDIOS
Proudly Presents:
“THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE”

Concieved by: Rebecca Feldman
Additional Material by: Jay Reiss
Music and Lyrics by: William Finn
Book by: Rachel Sheinkin

ABOUT THE SHOW:
An eclectic group of six-graders arrives at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive brings only her best friend (the dictionary) with her to the bee; Bold and hyperallergic speller William Barfee uses his “magic foot” to propel him to greatness; former champion Chip is struggling with his blossoming puberty; easily distracted Leaf is unconvinced that he’s smart enough to be a challenger; overachiever Marcy is disappointed by her consistent success; and politically aware Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her gay dads. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers. **Note: This show includes audience participation and will require certain audeince members to join the fun on stage**
