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.

Originally a cult classic John Waters film,_ Hairspray _was remade in 2007, starring John Travolta and Michelle Pfeiffer. The remake, which was nominated for a Golden Globe, was one of the top five highest grossing movie musicals of all time. The smash hit Broadway production of Hairspray won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. “You Can’t Stop the Beat” to this family-friendly musical that is piled bouffant-high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs. Set in Baltimore in 1962, Hairspray is the story of pleasantly plump teen, Tracy Turnblad, who does whatever it takes to fulfill her lifelong dream of appearing on the popular_ Corny Collins Show_. Can this plus-size trendsetter vanquish the program’s reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her fabulous ’do? Only in Hairspray! “Welcome to the ’60s!”
