The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical comedy that centers on a fictional spelling bee at Putnam County Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups. In an unusual twist, four real audience members will be invited to the stage to compete in the Bee alongside the six young characters. The Broadway production was nominated for six Tony Awards.
The production is directed by Darrell Drullinger.
