The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee brings musical theatre back to Festival!
"Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience." - from MTI's website about Spelling Bee.
Six brand new theatrical artists are joining Festival Theatre this weekend as rehearsals begin for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee! This heartfelt, hilarious musical comedy brings musical theatre back to St. Croix Festival Theatre for the first time since 2019! The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee kicks off our summer season with tons of laughs, great music, and lots of fun!
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.
