Six spellers enter… but only one speller can leave a champion! At least the losers get a juice box…

About The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Spelling Bee is a wildly hilarious take on adolescence, parenting, teachers, and the P-A-N-D-E-M-O-N-I-U-M of the world of competitive spelling bees. We step into the Putnam County school hall, where the air crackles with anticipation and nerves are on edge. As the bright lights shine down on our contestants, the stage comes alive with the unique and comical stories of six quirky, yet relatable, mid-pubescent teens on a quest for glory in the ultimate spelling showdown. But which speller will avoid the soul-crushing ‘ding’ of the bell that signals the end of their time in the competition?

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, Spelling Bee is a riotous ride that combines the raw excitement of a competition with a heartfelt exploration of identity, friendship, and the triumph of the human spirit. With its fast-paced wit and vibrant score, this is an unforgettable and unexpectedly heart-warming experience not to be missed.

Not seen on a professional Australian stage since the 2006 Melbourne and Sydney productions that saw stage superstars such as Magda Szubanski and David Campbell bring this hilarious show to life, it’s time to relive the magic in an entirely new way.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is presented by September Remedy Productions in association with Hayes Theatre Co
