25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee


  • Dunes Summer Theatre 288 Shady Oak Drive Michigan City, IN, 46360 United States (map)

This Tony Award winning musical centers on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the annual Spelling Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups. Contestants, who finally get their chance to shine, approach the competition with all ferocity of athletes in a state wide championship game. With each correct spelling, the nerdy, socially awkward, classroom misfits display youthful exuberance. The 24 musical numbers vary from upbeat ensemble pieces to touching solos.
