COVID-19 UPDATE: Please check with individual organizations and venues for specific requirements regarding mask mandates.
A group of Sixth Graders arrive at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each one eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive Ostrovsky brings her best friend (the dictionary) with her to the bee. Bold and Hyperallergic William Barfee uses his “magic foot” to propel him to greatness. Former champion, Chip Tolentino is struggling with puberty. Easily distracted, Leaf Coneybear is unconvinced that he is smart enough to be a challenger. Overachiever Marcy Park is disappointed by her constant success. Politically aware Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her gay dads. In hilarious, touching and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition.
Tuesday Dec. 29th and Wednesday 30th from 6pm – 9pm
Callbacks will be Saturday Jan. 2nd by invitation only.
