For Hometown News



The Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach will present "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" Nov. 23-Dec. 8.

This Tony Award winning musical comedy, full of quirky characters sure to remind you of your own school days, is a chance to cheer for the next Spelling Bee Champion. Musical numbers, both funny and touching, weave together a tale of success and defeat at the Putnam County Middle School. This show includes some on-stage audience participation, so be sure to bring your thinking cap.

This musical comedy is publicized as a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The audience will also have a chance to participate in this show. Before every performance of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," audience volunteers are drafted to join in on-stage as guest spellers. Each new group promises a new set of surprising experiences - one night is just as unique as the one before it.

Examples of words spelled by characters in performances of Spelling Bee include Astrobleme, Cat, Dinosaur, Hasenpfeffer, Origami and Weltanschauung. Julie Andrews missed "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" when she was a guest speller on KIDS night on Broadway in 2007.

The comedy is directed by Patti Earl and the musical director is Dr. Richard Martorano.

This production contains adult subject material and language.

Ticket prices are $20 adult, $19 seniors and $10 for students. Tickets are available at the Little Theatre Box Office, 726 Third Ave or by phone at (386) 423-1246.
