The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Presented by Vanguard University at Lyceum Theater, The

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. A riotous ride, complete with audience participation. This bee is one unforgettable experience.

Suitable for ages 6 and older.

All shows are presented at the Lyceum Theater located on the Vanguard University campus off Newport Boulevard. Ticket prices are $19 for general admission and $15 for seniors and children.
