April 17 - May 10, 2020
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! At least the losers get a juice box. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

This show contains some adult content. Daleko recommends it for ages 13 and up.
