Description

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee 

Music and Lyrics by William Finn

Book by Rachel Sheinkin 

Directed by Alyson Soma

The show’s Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
