SIX AWKWARD spelling champions learn that winning – and losing – isn’t everything as Arundel Players prove in their next production.
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humour.
Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is an unforgettable experience. An eclectic group of six youngsters vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime.
While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, they spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, is in store.
