The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in Berkeley Playhouse's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee -- along with some added audience participation and improvised moments. This musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture tweenage troubles at their worst, from "Woe Is Me" to "I'm Not That Smart." And the contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. With music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tony Awards in its original run, winning for Best Book of a Musical.

Fantastic! We drove 3 hours to this event and it was worth it! The variety of dancers from amateur children to local church groups to trained adult professionals was awesome. My critiques would be that they did not start on time (30+ minutes late) and no apology was made to the audience, the ticket pick-up was rather cumbersome, and the attire for the Ross Dance Company was inappropriate for a praise/worship dance. That said...I plan to be there in 2011.
There will also be a guest performance by Ross Dance, a musical performance by Covenant Worship Center’s choir and a live music and dance collaboration with Erik Lee and K2. In addition, during the pre- and post-show, For His Glory, a company from Oregon that specializes in praise dance flags, streamers and other props will have items available for purchase.
