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.

Enjoy an evening of hot cocoa, fruitcake and a tender reading of the Truman Capote classic A Christmas Memory, performed by Thomas Lynch, last seen as General Genghis Khan Schmitz in the Berkeley Playhouse smash debut, _Seussical, the Musical. _
Capote’s short story, often touted as one of the finest short stories written in the twentieth century, is a charming memoir about the love and friendship between a boy and his elderly cousin, and the adventures they share while they gather ingredients for their holiday fruitcakes.
Following this treat, local singing sensation Tamika Nicole will perform with Tal Ariel, and then lead the audience in an uplifting sing-along. Take a break from the holiday madness and enjoy a celebration reminiscent of simpler times.
