The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

The 25th Annual  Putnam County Spelling Bee

While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, six spellers spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves a champion! At least the losers get a juice box!


From the brilliant minds of William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee invites audiences into the uproarious world of a US regional spelling bee. The musical follows six teenage contestants, each with their quirks and dreams. Only one speller can win and make it to nationals. On top of an incredibly catchy score, the production offers the unique aspect of audience participation, allowing enthusiastic audience members to take to the stage as spellers. This heartfelt and comedic musical is a fast paced crowd-pleaser, and explores the challenges of adolescence, the pursuit of happiness, and the universal desire to belong.

HMS Pinafore

HMS Pinafore

HMS Pinafore is a comic operetta that follows the tale of the Captain's daughter 'Josephine' who is torn between her love for a lowly sailor and her duty to marry a man of high esteem. Set on a moored ship in Portsmouth, the operetta uses the classic tale of forbidden love to lampoon the notion of social class.


Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera HMS Pinafore is a hilarious story about the conflict between true love and expected duty, set aboard a ship moored in Portsmouth. Josephine, the daughter of the very traditional Captain Corcoran, falls for lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw, and is torn between him and her father’s plans for her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty.


Many of the meddlesome sisters, cousins and aunts aboard the ship, along with the hapless sailors, hope for a successful partnership for Josephine and Ralph, but their plans to elope are revealed by the dastardly Dick Deadeye. A confrontation between Corcoran, Josephine and Ralph ends in surprising happiness as local woman Buttercup reveals that Corcoran and Ralph were swapped at birth. Ralph is promoted to Captain, and three sets of lovers are united in a joyous and patriotic finale.


Content Warning: Brief mention of suicide / Use of firearms and weapons
