The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This hit musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents, using hilarious original songs like "Woe Is Me" and "Chip's Lament" to capture teenage troubles at their worst. In the end, the contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. With music and lyrics by William Finn and 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.

Super Adorable for kids. I love that the animals were actual people and not people in huge costumes. So personable. Costumes were simple, yet so cute. Loved the Ducks costume. The actor who played Wilbur was adorable and you can tell he loves his role. The play was just the right timing too...an hour,..enough for a great time and the kids didn't get squirley. It was kinda a musical and I loved that part. My daughter who is three wont' stop talking about it. Thank you!
Quotes & Highlights
E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web was a Newbery Honor Book in 1953.
Directed by Tammy Mader
Charlotte’s Web tells the story of Fern, a little girl who loves a sweet pig named Wilbur, and their friendship with a spider named Charlotte. Wilbur lives an idyllic barnyard life until he learns that he will soon be sent to the slaughterhouse. In order to help save him, Charlotte crafts a plan to spin kind words about Wilbur in her web, hoping that Farmer Zuckerman will realize what a wonderful pig he is and spare his life. Thanks to Charlotte and the mischievous rat Templeton, Wilbur not only lives, but also becomes a prize pig, ensuring his place on the farm forever. This endearing tale for the whole family celebrates the value of friendship, love and devotion.
