Mackay Musical Comedy Players present The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee.

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a musical comedy has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humour.

Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens 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! At least the losers get a juice box.

A riotous ride, fast-paced crowd pleaser and an instant theatre patron favourite, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Age Recommendation: 13+ years.
