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.

Sharon was amazing.. she did a great opening show and
hosted the breaks ,,but the breaks were long and we missed some of the TONYS -- the reason we were their ,, If they do this next year - they need to warn the crowd that you may not see the actual TONY show at times .. If you really want too see the TONYS - its best you miss this party -- or that the producers do a better job timing the commercial breaks .. Thanks Sharon for coming up to berkeley..

Berkeley Playhouse will roll out the red carpet for its first Tony Award Party on June 13, 2010. The Playhouse will broadcast on the big screen the American Theatre Wing’s 64th Annual Antoinette Perry “Tony”® Awards, which honor theatre professionals and distinguished achievement on Broadway. This free community event will be hosted by Broadway star Sharon McNight, who received a Tony nomination for Best Actress in a Musical for her role as “Diva” in “Starmites,” Best Musical nominee.
Her electrifying performance on the 1989 telecast of the Tonys thrust her onto the national stage, and since then, she has enjoyed a career as a much sought-after cabaret performer, and recording artist. Her one-woman shows “Red Hot Mama” and “The Sophie Tucker Songbook” have been acclaimed by critics on both coasts. She has also been widely recognized as a warrior in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and was even featured in the Randy Shilt’s book “And The Band Played On.”
Pre-show entertainment featuring Sharon McNight will begin at 7:00pm. Complimentary champagne, finger foods and drinks will be available (donations appreciated), and an exciting raffle will benefit TheatreReach, the Berkeley Playhouse educational outreach program. Theatre-related activities for youth and children will be held in the Center’s studios – led by a BP teaching artist.
Kids & teens participating in the event will perform a finale number on-stage with Sharon McNight! Sharon’s song list for the evening includes: “The Impossible Dream,” from Man of LaMancha, “Somewhere That’s Green” from Little Shop of Horrors, some classic Broadway, “Poor, Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid, and some of her signature songs by Mae West & Sophie Tucker….plus a fun audience sing-along and finale featuring Berkeley Playhouse kids and students.
