The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

An eclectic group of pre-teens vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, these quirky pre-adolescents 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. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.
