SPANAWAY LAKE HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
Spanaway Lake High School presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a riotous ride, complete with audience participation. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. 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.
Spelling Bee is directed by Chris Serface, co-directed and choreographed by Rico Lastrapes, and musically directed by Zachary Kellogg.
Spelling Bee will run Friday, May 4, 2018 until Sunday, May 13, 2018. Friday & Saturday showings are at 7:00pm and Sundays at 3:00pm. There will also be a special Thursday show on May 10th at 7:00pm. This show is recommended for all ages.
Tickets are $7.00 with ASB and $10.00 for all others. Tickets may be purchased in person at the auditorium.
All performances are held at Spanaway Lake High School, 1305 168th Street East, Spanaway, WA 98387
