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.

Join Berkeley Playhouse Teens in a gum-snapping, hip-shaking, hot-rockin’ musical about love and friendship in the 50’s! School’s back from summer and the senior class is gathering for their final year at Rydell High. As head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski relive the romance of their “Summer Nights” it becomes clear that both need to change their perspective!
Sassy, funny — evocative and provocative, this infectious musical showcases all that was fantastic about the fifties: rock n’ roll numbers that recall the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley – plus hot-roddin, ducktailed "burger palace boys” and bobby-soxed, pink-jacket ladies!
The show runs 2 hours.
