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.

Wonderful entertainment for both myself and kids ages 6-16. The set was beautiful and the cast outstanding, especially Aslan, the White Witch, the Beaver couple and -- amazingly -- all four kids! A few quirks with the set, lights and music . . . but I saw opening night so there is still time to work it out. Also, the music and vocals were really great. Go see!

Narnia is in a state of perpetual winter when four ordinary children plunge into its world through a magic cupboard. In a land filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable — both good and evil, demonic and transcendent — the children go on an extraordinary adventure to save Narnia in the hour of its greatest need. Based on the first and most famous story of the Chronicles by C.S Lewis and recreated on stage with a soaring score, Narnia is a rare family musical of unexpected wonder and wisdom.
Spirits will soar with the music of Narnia – from the excitement of the opening song, “Aslan’s On the Move,” to the joyful “You Can’t Imagine (How Beautiful it Was).”
