Can you spell Astrobleme, Hasenpfeffer, Origami, or Weltanschauung? This one-act musical comedy will test a few daring members of the audience nightly. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky 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. The musical was conceived by Rebecca Feldman with music and lyrics by William Finn, and is based on the book by Rachel Sheinkin.
Directed by Sherri Dienstfrey, this family-friendly comedy will entertain everyone. This production runs October 5, 6, 11, 12, & 13, 2012 with all shows starting at 7:30 pm. Visit us online at www.isu.edu/sopa for more information.
