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.

This was a good play. The woman that played Jo was pretty amazing and the most engaging member. Some of the play was a little slow and somewhat disjointed. It was nice to see so many kids at this play enjoying it - it is a classic.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel about family life and love, Little Women traces the adventures of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy growing up in trying times. The Civil War is underway, and father is off with the Union army. Money is tight, but the girls learn to be resourceful, knowing they can never be really poor as long as they have each other. Pretty Meg, the oldest, wonders if she will ever find love. Tomboy Jo struggles to balance her need for independence with her duty to her family. Shy Beth doesn’t realize how much her musical gifts mean to others, and little Amy learns that she must think less about herself and more about her family. Their neighbors, the wealthy Mr. Laurence and his high-spirited grandson, Laurie, admire the sisters’ kindness, talent and pluck — and step in to help when events take a turn for the worse.
For ages 6 and up.
By Louisa May Alcott
