“It’s spelled W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L.” – The Wall Street Journal

From the creator of Striking 12 (regionally premiered by BCT last season), The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicling the experience of six adolescents vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show’s Tony Award-winning creative team has
created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

PLEASE NOTE: This program contains explicit content and may not be suitable for children under 12.
