Welcome to Putnam County! Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.
This tuneful, offbeat musical comedy celebrates the mania of competition, and offers audience members the opportunity (strictly voluntary) to become part of the action as on-stage spellers. unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quircky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.
