Show Description

The Key Players will produce the famous Broadway musical comedy of the 25th annual Spelling Bee from Putnam County. Six mid-pubescents compete for the championship while candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives while spelling their way through the show.  

Also, audience be aware and practice your spelling, the Putnam Spelling Bee is open to more than just the Key Players performers. Participants will be pulled from the audience to compete, so practice your spelling and maybe you can win the 25th annual spelling bee.
