Clayton Theatre Company (CTC) presents “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” hit musical by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin. Nominated in 2005 for five Tony Awards and winning Best Book. Six awkward middle school spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn’t everything. Adult actors channel their pre-teen selves in this uproariously funny and touching musical.
Four audience members are chosen for each performance to participate as a speller in the contest. If you are interested in being a contestant on stage, CTC asks that you arrive a ½ hour before curtain and fill out an application form.
“Great news! The American musical comedy – with equal emphasis on the ‘musical’ part and the ‘comedy’ part – is alive and well…A treat and a half.” – TheatreMania
