The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical, has charmed audiences across the country with its wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced and wildly comical book by Rachel Sheinkin and a vibrantly bold score by William Finn, this musical comedy introduces us to an eclectic group of six tweens (played by adult actors) who vie for the spelling bee championship of a lifetime, while candidly disclosing hilarious and touching insights into their home lives.
