"Well? How'd you do?"

"I was the second one out."

"Possibly because you didn't study."

"Yeah."

"Or even look at the word list at all. Are you sad?"

"Not really."

"Because it's not your thing. Betcha if they had an Electric Guitar Bee, you would have studied."

"Mom, not just that, I would have won. Listen to this."

And the oldest proceeds to blister my ears with guitar awesomeness.

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Twin City Stage
January 29 - 31 & February 4 - 7


Where do six young people struggling with puberty stand out and fit in at the same time? At the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, of course. This spelling championship pits the quirkiest of heroes against one another in the unlikeliest of hit musicals. In this charming challenge, the contestants learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. Time magazine called SPELLING BEE “The joy of nerdiness,” “Funniest thing in seven consonants,” raved The Washington Post, “It’s spelled W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L,” wrote the Wall Street Journal. And be sure to brush up on your spelling; because at each performance of SPELLING BEE, four audience members are recruited to participate on-stage. It all adds up to a unique night of thoroughly entertaining theatre.
