The University Theatre presents a staged reading of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" by William Finn, Rachel Sheinkin and Rebecca Feldman. This reading will be a part of the University Theatre's Summer SOUP program to engage students with intensive study during summer break.
"The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" follows an eclectic group of six young teenagers in competition to be the spelling be champion. Together, they share stories of their home lives while preparing for the big event. Six spellers enter, one speller leaves. This program is recommended for ages 13 and up due to content. Doors open one hour before the reading begins.
