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.

The show was enjoyable. The music was great, the dancing fun and the singers were good. The set was creative and smart and the use of the theatre space made you feel like you were part of the show. The best performer was the actress who played Lina Lamont-- hands down stole the show!! She was fantastic! The actor who played Cosmo was also very talented and a physical actor so there was a lot of great stunts in the show! Overall, one of the better Berkeley Playhouse shows I've seen this year (much better than Oz). See it! And buy the tickets on Goldstar!
Go back to the magic of a 1920’s Hollywood soundstage—a time of high stakes, big egos, and unforgettable show tunes. Singin’ in the Rain is the gold standard in movie musicals, with a script that will touch the heart, tickle the funny-bone and seduce the imagination with movie-making illusions. With its witty script, acrobatic antics and unbeatable dance routines this is a must-see family musical. Audiences will enjoy the Julia Morgan Theatre transformed into a Hollywood sound stage and concessions from gourmet eaterie, Citron.
