The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Dare to Defy Productions presents this hysterical, live, stage production with local talent from the Miami Valley.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a long one-act musical comedy with music and lyrics by William Finn, a book by Rachel Sheinkin and additional material by Jay Reiss. The show centers on a fictional spelling bee set in a geographically ambiguous Putnam Valley Middle School. Six quirky adolescents compete in the Bee, run by three equally quirky grown-ups.

An unusual aspect of the show is that four real audience members are invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the six young characters.

Tickets: $20
