Town Hall Arts Center Presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Town Hall Arts Center will present the Tony-award winning musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee in January of 2011. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was conceived by Rebecca Feldman, with music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by Rachel Sheinkin.
This spirited musical follows six lovable middle-schoolers (and four volunteers pulled from the audience) through their annual county spelling bee. These six personify all the quirks we remember from academic champions of our youth: the boy scout, the little-miss-goodie-two-shoes, the lovable home-schooled kid, that girl with two dads. Suspense builds as these modern adolescent archetypes sing and spell their way through rounds of increasingly challenging words!
The Town Hall cast is: Brian Smith (Mitch Mahoney), Cameron Stevens (Leaf Coneybear), Chris Trimboli (Chip Tolentino), Daniel Langhoff (Vice Principal Douglas Panch), Heather Fritton (Olive Ostrovsky), Julia Periotta (Marcy Park), Kateri McRae (also known as SHE SAID; Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre), Margie Lamb (Rona Lisa Peretti) and Scott Rathbun (William Barfée). The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is directed by Bob Wells, with musical direction by Donna K. Debreceni and choreography by Nick Sugar.
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee plays January 7- January 30 at the Town Hall Arts Center in Litteton. Click the banner below for tickets and more information. See you at the Bee!
