The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a multi-award winning musical by Rachel Sheinkin with music and lyrics by William Finn. The show centers around a fictional spelling bee in Putnam County. Six “kids” face off in the battle of their lives. Vying for 1st prize are six delightfully quirky adolescents: an overachiever who speaks six languages, a young man with unfortunate allergies, the slightly befuddled offspring of hippie parents, a shy newcomer, the politically-aware daughter of same-sex parents, and a boy scout who was last year's winner. Three adults help adjudicate the proceedings: a nostalgic former spelling bee winner, a mildly insane Vice Principal and The Official Comfort Counselor completing his community service to the state. While the spellers are children they will played by adult (16+) actors.
