The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a heartwarmingly quirky musical comedy that follows six awkward adolescents through their daunting and hysterical championship quest. As they navigate the tournament’s pressures, they learn that there is more to life than winning a trophy. This charming coming-of-age tale also invites four volunteers from the audience to participate in each performance, ensuring new and unexpected comedy every night.
