The competition is intense. The words are hilarious. Let the spelling begin!

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is an hilarious tale where 10 quirky children face off in the battle of their lives - 4 of whom are audience volunteers who join the cast onstage and compete for the title! Hosted by Rona Peretti (a nostalgic former spelling bee winner), adjudicated by Douglas Panch (the mildly insane Vice Principal), and kept in check by The Official Comfort Counsellor Mitchell M. Mahoney who is completing his community service at the bee.

NB: If you would like to be considered to participate as a 'contestant', please register in the foyer on the night you are attending no later than 1/2hr before the performance begins (7.30pm on Tues-Sat, and 1.30pm on Sunday). Please note, there are only 4 vacancies each performance. The selection committee will choose the 4 lucky contestants who will then need to attend a briefing regarding the rules and regulations of the Spelling Bee Contest.

Doors will open at 7.15pm (1.15pm for matinees)
