Carson Valley Community Theatre and DHS Drama Dept. present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
Auditions are December 1 at 6pm and December 4 at 10am at The Annex, 1572 Hwy 395, Minden, Nevada. The cast includes both adults and teens.
Piano accompaniment is available or bring your own music.
Show dates are March 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 7:30, March 20 and 27 at 2:00pm.
Contact Amy Sando (775) 450-8308 if you have any questions or to schedule an audition.
