The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

St. Bonaventure Church
1625 W. Diversey Chicago

The Tony and Drama Desk award-winning musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee features a book by Rachel Sheinkin and a score by William Finn. An eclectic group of mid-pubescents-joined by willing audience members-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.
