A heartfelt musical comedy!  

How do you spell F-U-N?! This heartfelt musical comedy will have you in stitches as a group of six ragtag adolescents (all played by adults) competes in a high-spirited Spelling Bee. Pandemonium ensues as they vie for the top spot, and spell their way to nationals. This high-stakes competition puts each of the contestants at the mic and in the spotlight as we learn about their hilarious and touching stories from the heart.

A Tony Award-winning U-N-F-O-R-G-E-T-T-A-B-L-E experience, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee proves that winning (and losing) isn’t everything.

Contains some PG-13 humor.
