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.

I attend plays with my kids at Adventure Theatre all the time. I thought the acting in Mirandy & Brother Wind was excellent and superior to others plays that I have attended. It even kept the attention of my husband who usually views these plays as nap time.

Who will take the cake? Why, Mirandy of course. The junior cake walk happens soon and Mirandy needs a dance partner. Who can high step and kick the best? Why, Brother Wind! But how can Mirandy captured him? Grandmother Beasley says, "Can't nobody put shackles on Brother Wind, chile. He be special. He be free." Leave it to Mirandy, she’ll catch him; she'll grab hold of that Brother Wind and win that delicious cake! Through her journey to capture Brother Wind, Mirandy learns something special — the importance of freedom and kindness.
