"The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee"

Casady's Upper Divison theater students will perform the hit musical "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" under the direction of Casady Theatre Director Andi Dema. The cast has rehearsals in the evenings and Sunday afternoons as they prepare their roles for the production scheduled in February in Fee Theater.

An eclectic group of six middle schoolers 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.

Performances:
  • Feb. 23 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Feb. 24 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.
  • Feb. 25 at 2:00 p.m.
Tickets:
  • $10 general admission
  • $5 students and senior citizens
