"The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" is a hilarious tale of adolescent overachievers' angst played out at the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award-winning creative team produced the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming group of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

The show includes adults playing the roles of six young people overseen by three grown-ups. The cast calls for five males and four females.

For any questions, contact Jim Kleinbeck at 253-804-5057.
