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.

Godspell (an archaic spelling of the word gospel) is a 1970 musical by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak. It opened off Broadway on May 17, 1971, and has played in various touring companies and revivals many times since. Several cast albums have been released over the years and one of its songs, “Day By Day” from the original cast album, reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in the summer of 1972.
