I watch the National Spelling Bee every year and this rendition was truly unique, funny and refreshing. The acting was great and so were the cute songs, so glad I finally got a chance to see this awesome production.

This is a cute show. This performance was well done and used many young actor/singers. The production used it's surroundings well.

*_T_he 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee_

_*_Directed by Gregory Cohen


The competition is intense. The words are hilarious. Let the spelling begin!

The show centers around a fictional spelling bee in Putnam County, New York. Six kids face off in the battle of their lives. They compete against each other as well as members of the audience. Three adults help adjudicate the proceedings: a nostalgic former spelling bee winner, a mildly insane Vice Principal and The Official Comfort Counselor completing his community service to the state of New York.
