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.

About the Ticket Supplier: Kung Pao Kosher ComedyKung Pao Kosher Comedy was created in 1993 by accident by San Francisco comedian Lisa Geduldig, who went to perform in South Hadley, Massachusetts at what she thought was going to be a comedy club. Peking Garden Club turned out to be a Chinese Restaurant. After telling Jewish jokes at a Chinese restaurant, a conversation between Lisa and her old summer camp friend, Tobi Sovak, led to the creation of Kung Pao Kosher Comedy.
The event started out as a community service for all Jews who have ever been stuck on Christmas with nothing to do but hide under the covers, contemplate midnight Mass, or visit a Chinese restaurant... The audience has expanded to include Chinese-Jewish couples, interfaith ones, singles, families, gay people, straight people, undecided ones, those who are far from home, and just generally people who like smart comedy mixed with Chinese food.
