The cast, crew, and artistic staff of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee are incredibly excited to present to you our creative twist on this modern musical! This week alone has included over 30 hours spent by the cast alone on rehearsing lines, songs, and choreography, not including the time spent practicing outside of rehearsal. That, however, is an inadequate representation of the time spent by the professional and student artistic staffs, technicians, costumers, and parents on creating the world that is Putnam County. The dedication and passion of every person involved in this program is incredible, and this program would be nowhere without them.

One of the most exciting components of this show is the integration of celebrity and guest spellers, both local and statewide. Everyone is very excited to see them up on stage with the rest of the Putnam community. There are just a couple of spots still open for “celebrity spellers,’ so if there are any celebrities, local or otherwise who come to mind, or you are a celebrity who is interested in spelling a few words, please contact us director Rebecca Meyer-Larson. All contact information can be found onĀ
