An eccentric group of six teenagers compete for the ultimate spelling championship title, while stopping to tell the audience stories from their quirky, overachieving and complicated lives that are both hilarious and touching. An interactive musical that includes extensive audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a smart, charming, comedic evening of musical theatre and winner of the Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Book.

Auditions are:

  • Sunday, May 3, 6:00-8:00 p.m., Milton Area High School, 700 Mahoning St, Milton
