A special production starring students of the Depot Theatre Academy
Tickets for this production are not included with Season Pass.

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a heartfelt musical comedy that follows an eclectic group of six teens who compete 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 “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake.


The Depot Theatre Academy is underwritten by the BROOKS AND JOAN FORTUNE FAMILY FOUNDATION.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
