The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture teenage troubles at their worst from "Woe Is Me" to "My Unfortunate Erection (Chip's Lament)." 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.

When it comes to the environment, young Walter is far from enlightened. He's a litterbug who believes sorting trash is a big waste of time. But one night, Walter dreams about a very different future. Filled with humor and fantasy, Walter’s dream is a wake-up call for him – and all of us – about what we need to do to protect and preserve the future of our planet.
Adapted by Sandra Eskin, this original eco-play uses puppets, magical stage effects, and lush sound-scapes to create a theatrical version of Chris Van Allsburg’s beautiful illustrations. All production materials (costumes, props and sets) will be made of Earth-Friendly and Recycled Materials.
