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.

Naomi Newman brings to life a parade of fascinating characters, created over the last 25 years, in her new one-woman show, “Fall Down Get Up.”
Traveling Jewish Theatre’s 25th season continues with this original play, directed by Ben Yalom of San Francisco’s FoolsFURY.
The play weaves a tapestry of women’s voices from an array of cultures, classes and ages, including a flamboyant Yiddish theater actress, a German bohemian poet, an African slave, a wisecracking street crone and many others.
Their stories, songs, dances and jokes serve up wise and witty recipes for living — directions for the many ways to “fall down get up.”
