25th Annual PutnamCountySpellingBeePoster

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

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. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.

A riotous ride, complete with audience participation!

We're looking for spellers to join the bee!  If you're interested, fill out the audience participation form after you purchase your ticket. You will be notified before the show if you've qualified for the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Good luck, spellers!
